The SLX1300 trenchless pipe extraction system from HammerHead is for small diameter steel natural gas services using an innovative new method of replacing coated and bare steel gas service lines 0.5 to 1.25 inches in diameter, up to 100 feet in length.
- Hydraulically powered
- Produces up to 13.3 tons of pulling force to extract the pipe from the ground while simultaneously pulling new HDPE or MDPE pipe into the same location as the existing pipe, reducing risk to surrounding utilities
- On-board pipe shear that the operator engages to cut the pipe material as it is extracted into manageable segments for easy disposal
- Requires a working pit approximately 4 feet wide by 4 feet long
- Entire system can be transported in the back of a standard pickup truck, reducing costs associated with extensive excavation and support equipment needs
