Hire Pipeline Solutions

Avoid unnecessary capital expenditure when you hire equipment.

The benefits of equipment hire as an alternative to purchasing and why sourcing equipment on a case-by-case basis makes perfect sense.

It is often assumed that rental solutions are only for emergency breakdowns. However, with opportunities to avoid capital expenditure and receive first-rate maintenance, the benefits of short or long-term rental as part of an ongoing contingency plan, or even as a try-before-you-buy option, are clear.

Trenchless Moling

Moling technology is widely-used and ever increasing in the civil engineering fields .Compared to open-trenching this method of underground installation and renewal of supply and disposal pipelines has major technical and economic advantages. Shorter construction times are major advantages especially when providing property service connections like fibre installations or electrical cabling and when crossing busy roads.

GRUNDOMAT soil displacement technique

The pneumatically driven hammers work according to the soil displacement method, when moving forward the spoil is displaced into the surrounding soil. A channel is produced into which socket less short or long pipes up to OD 160 made of plastic (PE, PVC or PE-X) or cables can be pulled in. Depending on the type of soil, lengths of up to 25 m can either be pulled in simultaneously or later. A compressor with 6 – 7 bar operating pressure is required for this, with exact alignment of the machine towards the target necessary for high on-target accuracy.

QUICKLOCK Local Patch Repair System

Positioned by a crawler and expanded pneumatically, Quick-Lock’s rehab sleeve provides structural, trenchless pipe repair with heavy-gauge 316L stainless steel, plus infiltration abatement with an EPDM rubber gasket. Quick-Lock solves:

  • Infiltration.
  • Longitudinal cracks.
  • Circumferential cracks.
  • Holes.
  • Separated joints.
  • Offset joints.
  • Abandoned laterals.
  • Root intrusion.

It installs in minutes with minimal manpower and overhead. Quick-Lock is chemically resistant against sewage, thinned acids, lye, and aromatic and chlorinated hydrocarbons.

  • Quick-Lock sleeves are available in diameters ranging 6–32”, and in lengths of 16”, 19″ and 20”.
  • Multiple sleeves can be interleaved to perform longer repairs.
  • The sleeve design meets ASTM F3110-14 for mechanical trenchless point repair.

Point Repair: For standalone point repair, or for pre-lining under high infiltration, Quick-Lock sleeves restore a pipe’s structural integrity and seal out groundwater. They minimize diameter loss and outlast any other rehab.

Liner End Seal: Quick-Lock end caps strengthen a CIPP liner at its most vulnerable points—the ends. Stronger and easier to install than other end caps, they’re a must-have insurance policy for installed CIPP.
