The recently launched, high performance thermoplastic coating, Plascoat PPA 571 Aqua, has been given approval for use with potable water in the UK, Australia and New Zealand. The coating has WRAS (Water Regulations Advisory Scheme) approval in the UK and meets the joint Australian and New Zealand standard AS/NZS 4020. PPA 571 Aqua is a universal thermoplastic coating developed to provide a "one product suits all" solution for the water industry and to help water authorities reduce maintenance and running costs.
The fully structural CIPP liner Nordipipe™, offered by SPR (Sekisui Pipe Renewal) Americas, is available for installation lengths up to 1,000" and diameters up to 48". The liner enables tailor-made drinking water pipe lining meeting AWWA Class IV and NSF 61 standard. After inversion, the liner is cured to a statically self-supporting pipe within a pipe.
Reed's Low Clearance Rotary™ Cutters need only 4" clearance to cut pipe up to 16" diameter. The manual-operated cutters cold cut large diameter steel, most stainless steel, ductile, and cast iron pipe in close quarters. The cutters are supplied with a slip-on handle that is used to turn and tighten the cutter. With good leverage from the tool's long handle, pipe snaps off squarely before the cutter wheels penetrate halfway through the pipe. The tool provides a square cut and can be used in close quarters anywhere -- in the ditch, underwater, in noise-free zones, over head, in racks of pipes, etc.

Fusible PVC pipe
With over 1,000 miles of Fusible PVC™ pipe installed, fused PVC pipe is one of the fastest growing infrastructure technologies in North America. Available in nominal diameters from 4" to 36", the pipe provides both trenchless and open-cut projects with economical solutions. The benefits of having no mechanical couplings or bells, and possessing a thinner wall for given pressure class versus other thermoplastic pipes, ensures that the pipe maximizes flow and reconnects easily to ductile iron or bell and spigot lines.
