Pulling Pipes From 15mm to 25mm – From 1 to 2o Meter Single Runs
Pipe pulling is one of three forms of trenchless technologies that we utilize here at Trenchless Technology Ltd.
Pipe Pulling is a technique that is used to pull new pipework or ducting, through existing pipework or ducting. It is upto 4 times quicker than other ways to replace underground service pipes.
It can be replace existing pipework or ducting over a distance of upto 22 meters per run, we are able to cover distances of approximately 80-100 meters per working day using the pipe pulling technology. This obviously requires 4-5 runs to be carried out consecutively.
Each run requires a sending & receiving pit to be excavated, these pits are a minumum size of approximetely 1ft x 1ft. Our expert pipe pulling teams plan the exact location of these sending / reciving pits to mimizise any costs of making good driveways, pathways, gardens & outbuildings etc.
The pipe pulling process:
a) Sending / receivcing pits are excavated
b) The Pipe puller is put into location
