Strategic Alliance Offers Suite of Noninvasive Pipe Repair, Rehab Solutions
HammerHead Trenchless Equipment is teaming upwith RS Lining SystemsLLC, a provider of RS Technik pipe rehabilitation solutions. The partnership will complete the suite of nonintrusive rehabilitation solutions available to HammerHead customers.
A global leader of CIPP technology, RS Technik manufactures rehabilitation product lines such as RS MaxPatch, a fast, trenchless, selective point repair system for pipes 3 to 48 inches in diameter.
“It’s exciting for us tobe partnered with HammerHead,” says Joanne Carroll, RS Lining Systems senior vice president. “HammerHead is a significant leader in the industry, who provides trenchless solutions that effectively and economically address mounting underground infrastructure issues. Together we will significantly enhance the value to customers by delivering the industry’s most complete package of sustainable engineered solutions for trenchless pipeline repair.”
Rick Johnson, HammerHead interim president and CEO of Charles Machine Works, agrees. “Every RS Technik solution is fundamentally grounded in providing proven, effective and reliable alternatives to traditional pipe repair. Combine their products with our HammerHead HydraLiner CIPP line of installation equipment and consumables — not to mention our full line of pipe bursting equipment — and our customers have access to every advantage possible for restoring gravity and pressure sewer, water and industrial pipe infrastructures.”
RS MaxPatch is the first of many solutions HammerHead customers now have access to. Already available for sale through HammerHead sales representatives and HammerHead’s retail site, RS MaxPatch is a safe, proven CIPP solution used to repair short sections of pipe. The corrosion-resistant fiberglass composite system repairs and seals isolated pipe defects such as cracks, leaks, joint offsets, corrosion and root intrusion. The high-strength resin and fiberglass matrix provides unmatched structural strength, while its thin, tapered profile and smooth finish help maintain or increase flow capacity.
