Rising Sewer Main for Grafton Bridge Utilities Project

HDX Casing SpacersProject:  Rising Sewer Main for Grafton Bridge Utilities Project

Contractor: Ledonne Constructions Pty Ltd

Carrier Size:  DN375 M-PVC

Casing Size:  DN600 Mild Steel casing

Spacer Model:  HDX 65

Kwik-ZIP HDX65 casing spacers were utilised for the Rising Sewer Main for Grafton Bridge Utilities project.

HDX Casing SpacersThe project required two 30m length of DN375 M-PVC carrier pipe to be installed inside a DN600 Mild Steel Casing.

One 30m length of carrier pipe was installed using traditional trenchless methodology with the carrier pipe being inserted into the buried casing pipe, with the second 30m length of carrier pipe being inserted into the casing pipe on the surface and then installed into a trench.

kwik-ZIP model HDX 65 spacers were selected and installed at 1m intervals to support the carrier pipe and protect it from abrasion damage during installation for both sections.

HDX Casing SpacersKwik-ZIP’s casing spacers have no metal parts and are made from Acetal POM – a high-grade thermoplastic that is flexible, extremely tough and has a low coefficient of friction. The spacers simple and efficient installation process require no special tools.

Kwik-ZIP HDX Spacers are approved by WSAA and meet the requirements of their Product Specification PS-324 Casing Spacers.

“kwik-ZIP spacers robust design and low coefficient of friction assisted to make the installation process trouble free, and ensured complete protection of the carrier pipe.” – Michael Allen: Project Engineer – Ledonne Constructions Pty Ltd.
