HammerHead Trenchless will conduct live Same Path gas line slitting technology demonstrations during this year’s International Construction and Utility Equipment Exposition (ICUEE) in Louisville. Same Path gas line slitting technology is a tooling system for trenchlessly replacing plastic natural gas distribution pipe.
Designed for use with the HydroGuide line of cable winches, the Same Path tool string components are specifically engineered for trouble-free splitting of .5- to 4-in. PVC, HDPE, MDPE and Aldyl-A pipe uniformly throughout the run, while limiting torque on new MDPE or HDPE replacement pipe. Since the tooling follows the existing pipe path, it reduces risk of interference with other utilities. The technique helps meet indemnification requirements of gas lines left in the ground.
The technology will be displayed in the Demo Lot in Booth K265.
