Project: South Geelong Station – Water Main Relocation Project
Location: Victoria – Barwon Water
Carrier Size: 660mm OD MSCL Steel Mains Sintakote®
Casing Size: 800mm ID RCP casing
Run Length: 54m
Spacer Model: HDXT-58W (58mm high)
On a recent Water Main relocation project in Victoria, McConnell Dowell utilised Kwik-ZIP HDXT-58W spacers to facilitate the slip-lining of a 660mm OD MSCL Steel Mains Sintakote® carrier pipe over a 54-metre run.
Whilst not utilised on this particular installation, kwik-ZIP HDXT-58W spacers can accommodate our kwik-ROLLER® wheels. These clip-on wheels are ideal for use in longer runs to minimise wear and to provide significantly reduced co-efficient of friction.
“With limited room and unable to utilise our pipe rollers we had concern pushing the MSCL pipe 54m would be a challenge but, the Kwik-ZIP spacers allowed us to install with ease using a 14T Excavator” Paul Pomfret, Senior Project Engineer – McConnell Dowell.
kwik-ZIP’s HDXT & HDX Series spacers have been successfully appraised by the Water Services Association of Australia (WSAA) with both products the only casing spacers on the market that have been approved as compliant by WSAA. The WSA PS-324 Product Specification prescribes casings spacer requirements for correct protection of carrier pipes when installed inside casings.
