Project: Live Sewer Re-Line
Carrier Size: Nominal 42” & 39” Semi Elliptical (SE)
Casing Size: Variable – Semi Elliptical
Kwik-ZIP HD-50 and HDX-38 spacers were utilized to facilitate the sliplining of new semi-Elliptical FRP liner pipe around curves into an existing concrete semi-elliptical pipe for a sewer replacement project in Los Angeles.
Two different pipe sizes utilised in the project required the use of the two kwik-ZIP models – one of Kwik-Zip’s advantages is the provision of flexibility of solutions which can meet a wide range of project requirements.
Two kwik-ZIP spacer rings were installed on each 2.8m pipe segement to protect the carrier pipe from abrasion or damage during the pipe installation.
kwik-ZIP’s HD spacers are well suited for use in environments with rough surfaces as their curved bow design allow them to be easily pulled or pushed over rough ground surfaces.
Furthermore, the unique design enables kwik-ZIP spacers to be used on any pipe profile as was a significant requirement in this project.
Kwik-ZIP’s spacers have no metal parts and are made from Kwik-ZIP’s engineered thermoplastic blend – a high-grade thermoplastic that is flexible, extremely tough and has a low coefficient of friction.
Both the HDX and HD spacers are simple and the efficient installation process does not require any special tools.
