Pipe bursting

The Grundoburst static pipe bursting system from TT Technologies can be used to burst and replace water and sewer pipe. The system can pull in a variety of replacement pipe including PVC, DIP, ABS, cast iron no hub soil pipe, cast iron bell and spigot soil pipe, fusion welded HDPE and VCP jacking pipe. Pulled by a hydraulic bursting unit, the cutter head’s special cutting wheels split the host pipe. This system makes bursting ductile iron and steel pipe possible. In addition, several cutter head configurations are available for splitting VCP, PVC, ACP, cast iron and more. Patented Quicklock bursting rods are linked together not threaded.

CuraFlo® offers two solutions for the repair and restoration of corroded potable water pipes. The company’s Engineered Flow Lining System® restores ½" to 4" water supply pipes by using air pressure to dry, clean and then line pipes with a protective epoxy barrier. Its Spincast System™ restores 3" to 36" water, drain and process pipes by cleaning and then “spinning” epoxy onto the interior surface of the pipe. CuraFlo’s epoxy is certified to ANSI/NSF Standard 61 for water temperatures up to 180°F.

Manhole lining

Click here to enlarge image

Sauereisen Manhole ChimneySeal No. F–88 is a chemical–resistant, elastomeric lining composed of a fiber–reinforced, asphalt–modified urethane. The system prevents the inflow and infiltration of groundwater into the chimney section of manholes. It also accommodates horizontal and vertical movement of the substrate due to freeze/thaw cycles. The lining can significantly reduce the cost of treating additional sewage volume that originates as inflow through voids and cracks along manhole grade rings and chimneys.

Reed Manufacturing offers Rotary Cutters™ and Low Clearance Rotary™ Cutters. The tools can be used to cold cut large diameter (6"–36") steel, most stainless steel, ductile, and cast iron pipe in close quarters. The low profile design of the LCRC models needs only 4" clearance for up to 16" pipe diameter, and only 8" clearance for pipe diameters above 16" on the RC models. Each cutter is supplied with a slip–on handle that is used to turn the cutter around the pipe in one direction.

The engineers at Occlude have designed a resilient seated insertion valve of simple design that meets and/or exceeds the AWWA C515 valve specification. The valves can be installed into pipeline systems without a shut down and are capable of handling working pressures up to +250 psi. By removing a complete section of pipe and stocking a single valve body, users have a unique valve that will insert into steel, PVC, C–900, cast iron, ductile iron and A/C by using interchangeable side glands that mate the valve body to the pipeline.
