Aussie Trenchless in the trenchless industry trenches

With a range of innovative products and technical knowledge, Aussie Trenchless’ impact on the industry grows larger with time.

Characterised by its ease of use and speedy installation process, Aussie Trenchless SRP EXP can extend the service life of sewer and stormwater assets by more than five decades. The relining product – available for asset profiles from DN 150 to DN 1200 – is a close fit structural spiral ribbed PVC relining system for circular sewer and stormwater gravity pipelines.

It is designed to fit standard size access chambers and is ideal for tight spaces and areas with bad access. The installation is well suited to wastewater applications as bypass pumping is unnecessary and it is unaffected by running infiltration.

Aussie Trenchless Director Chris Meredith says he’s seen significant growth in the implementation of this trenchless solution both in the company’s home base of Australia and also around the world.

“Like all efficient trenchless methods, the spiral lining system helps ensure the works’ aboveground footprint is minimised as much as possible, which includes the land and environment itself, as well as the day-to-day lives of the public in surrounding areas,” says Mr Meredith.

“We’ve recently made some very strong inroads in Asia with this solution and our customers are always impressed with how quick, simple and affective it is.”

Rather than acting as a one-trick pony, Aussie Trenchless has a few more stallions in its stable, including its Pipe Segment Technology (PST), used for the rehabilitation of gravity sewer mains. The man entry lining system has proven to be quite popular in the industry and uses transparent polypropylene lining panels, which are suited to a tight location.

The panels provide a smooth surface with excellent hydraulic performance characteristics, while its transparent nature means there is no risk or speculation regarding grouting levels during rehabilitation. The technology fits round, ovoid and square pipes forms and can use an enhanced design strength for high live loads.

Another popular product provided by Aussie Trenchless is the Hot Sleeve Heating Jacket, used to induce a speedy resin cure during patch and seal lining activities. Estimated to save up to 60 per cent in crew times, the Hot Sleeve is a tight-fitting heating jacket that is secured over a patch inflatable packer to reduce ambient cure period without reducing its life.

The system provides heat on the affected area to start the curing transition in a move that will not impact patch strength or longevity. Benefits of the system include costs, profitability, greatly reduced operational time and ease of use, with the product guaranteeing an acceptable pot life period with a quick resin cure on all patch and seal lining repairs.

According to Mr Meredith, the company’s range of trenchless solutions is not the only drawcard that keeps customers coming back.

“Aussie Trenchless’ clients know that they are purchasing a tried and tested system that has seen real-world success and has been designed based on a foundation of experience and trenchless knowledge. We also regularly take our technology – like the spiral wound liner – out to events so clients can see in a live and unfiltered setting how straightforward and reliable the process is,” says Mr Meredith.
