The first system in the industry to offer a permanent Lateral Sealing in Relined Pipelines. The TOP HAT Rehabilitation System uses a Polyester impregnated corrosion resistant fibreglass insert. It can reach 150mm to 200mm into the lateral and creates a 3? “brim” in the main pipe. The Epoxy component achieves superior sealing on wet surfaces. The equipment package has 6 applicators and is capable of covering 150mm to 600mm main pipes and 100 – 225mm laterals.
The TOP HAT Rehabilitation System used in conjunction with The INPIPE Lining Systemprovides a complete main Sewer Renovation. Defective connections, junctions etc can be renovated ensuring that infiltration is excluded at the connection point to the host sewer, and providing a permanent structural repair
Lateral Rehabilitation is no longer a problem due to our Top Hat System which has been successfully proven to Repair Lateral Connections. The unique fibreglass insert fits T or Y connections. It is delivered impregnated and wrapped in protective black foil. Installation is simple. The laminate is placed on the applicator, driven to the lateral / connection and inserted by air pressure. The laminate is cured by UV light. Additional self-propelled cutting equipment for removal of intrusions, preparation works pre repairs.
The Installation Unit is custom designed. All work is controlled from the operator room. The Installation rig is fully equipped and built to the highest standard. Each Pipe Renovation / Pipe Repair is recorded on Video and the T number recorded.
The rear working area of the installation unit contains the reels, robots and applicators. The compressors, generators are silenced units, positioned at the front of the Installation Unit.
