Pipetech launches patented technology for pressurised systems

Published by
World Pipelines,

Despite the current low oil price, Pipetech has introduced new, innovative technology: the Tool for Pressurised Systems (TPS). The TPS has been designed and patented by the 20 strong specialist firm. The function of the TPS, which works in conjunction with their unique Aqua Milling® system, is to enable them to remove all scale and contaminates from a range of pipework, in a pressurised environment.

Pipetech’s specialist engineers identified the need for a reliable double-block and bleed pressure retaining device with an emergency shear valve and hose grab to enable them to carry out additional cleaning work in systems up to 60 bar g. The TPS enables the Aqua Milling® system to reach up to 600 m in a pressurised system.

Lindsay Young, Managing Director for Pipetech commented: “It is a difficult time in the industry, as we all know, but we are continuing to invest in the company having recently launched our new website and now a new patent protected product. The launch of the TPS is great for Pipetech as it furthers our existing product offering. It will be a benefit to many of our customers as it can be used outwith shutdowns and reduce downtime.”

She added: “Our Aqua Milling® technology is often the only method of cleaning complex pipework systems from a single entry point. Together with the enhanced online capability of the TPS it will reduce costs and increase productivity.”

For pipeline distribution, power, water, sewer, gas and underdrain installations, as well as other heavy-duty trenching applications, both machines can do the work, yet excavators continue to be more prevalently used. But, this seems to be largely due to tradition. In fact, many contractors will tell you that they still install product with an excavator because that’s the way they’ve always done it.
