Project: South Grafton PS Outfall Pipes, South Grafton
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 South Grafton PS Outfall Pipes project.
Kwik-ZIP HDX Spacers are approved by WSAA and meet the requirements of their Product Specification PS-324 Casing Spacers.
“Kwik-ZIP products are simple and quick to install and ensure the carrier pipe is appropriately protected from abrasion and other damage during installation. Minimal force is required during installation of the carrier pipe due to the products low coefficient of friction.” – Michael Allen: Project Engineer – Ledonne Constructions Pty Ltd.
The project required two 30m length of DN375 M-PVC carrier pipe to be installed inside a DN600 Mild Steel Casing. With the two pipe runs not being grouted after installation, the strength and durability of kwik-ZIP HDX Spacers are ideal for supporting the combined pipe/water weight once commissioned.
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.
Kwik-ZIP’s 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.
