Jan. 18, 2011: Patent Awarded for In-place Pipe Restoration and Leak Sealing System

SANTA ANA, Calif. - Pipe Restoration Technologies LLC (PRT), the parent of ACE DuraFlo® Systems LLC, announced that it has been awarded by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) patent number 7858149 for its ePIPE in-place pipe restoration and leak sealing system.

The ePIPE technology provides an internal barrier coating and seals leaks in pipes while the pipes remain in-place, preventing leaks without having to use conventional repair and repiping methods. This patent covers pipes used to carry potable water, natural gas, fire sprinkler systems, and drains.

“Our research and development team is proud of this accomplishment. Focusing on commercializing smart innovative green solutions is part of our ‘Made in America’ philosophy. This patent, added to our existing portfolio of patents and IP, supports us in this pursuit,” said Larry Gillanders, CEO, ACE DuraFlo Systems.

The company also noted that recently the ACE DuraFlo ePIPE team was nominated for the U.S. National Medal of Technology and Innovation, which is the highest honor for technological achievement bestowed by the president of the United States.
