Pipe liner

Insituform Technologies offers the InsituMain™ system, a cured-in-place pipe for pressure pipe rehabilitation. The lining system is an AWWA Class IV fully structural CIPP product suitable for all potable and non-potable pressure pipes. The liner was designed to handle the internal pressure and external load requirements of pressure pipe. It has been tested to ANSI/NSF 61 requirements. The system has a polyethylene layer on the inside pipe surface that increases the pipe's smoothness, reduces surface friction, minimizes reduction in flow, and provides an additional corrosion barrier for the pipe.

Pipe cutting

Pennwell web 327 150

CS Unitec's PowerGrit Air Chain Saw is suited for utility, municipal, construction and industrial pipe cutting applications. It has a cutting capacity of up to 20" diameter and can be used to cut ductile iron, cast iron, PVC, and HDPE pipe. The saw offers significant advantages over conventional gasoline cut-off saws using abrasive blades. It allows the user to cut from one side, which reduces the need for excavation. Special patented diamond segments grind rather than tear the material which reduces vibration and eliminates kickback. Pneumatic power eliminates the exhaust fumes associated with conventional saws, especially in confined spaces.

CCTV main inspection

The Pressure Pipe Inspection Co. has introduced a CCTV tool capable of inspecting up to 6,000 feet of an operating water main. The video capability is the latest tool to be added to the Sahara® platform, which already includes leak and gas pocket detection. The video tool gives utilities the ability to see inside large diameter, pressurized water pipelines without shutdown or dewatering. The CCTV video tool can be used for a number of applications including locating lost line valves, investigating unexplained flow conditions and locating debris and partial blockages. The tool is inserted into a live pipeline through a standard two inch or larger tap. Tethered to the surface, the CCTV camera is pulled by the flow of the water, transmitting real-time video data from inside the pipeline.

Ultra Blue PVCO pipe, available from JM Eagle, is designed for use in potable water and force main systems. Molecularly oriented for a wall that's four times stronger than conventional PVC at half the thickness, it also features a larger interior diameter for improved performance. With a higher cyclic fatigue strength and greater impact strength, the pipe is crush resistant, non-corroding, durable and leak-resistant. It delivers HDB of 7,100 psi vs. HDB of 4,000 psi of conventional PVC pipe. Because of its smooth wall, light weight and larger interior diameter, the pipe reduces energy needed for pumping and simplifies installation
