Everywhere you go in the United States aging, underground sewer lines are deteriorating, leaking and in serious need of repair. HammerHead Trenchless has a solution to get the job done fast.
The company’s redesigned Bluelight LED cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining system is geared for rapid rehabilitation of laterals and small sewer pipes from 3 to 10 inches in diameter.
The redesign includes features such as an intuitive touchscreen interface, interchangeable reels in 131- and 164-foot lengths, three light head sizes, including a new 3-inch light head, and a lightweight ergonomic frame for easier maneuverability and portability.
The company’s Bluelight technology uses a specially formulated single-part resin that cures under light in the “blue” wavelength, giving installers significantly longer working time between liner wet-out and curing. Once installed, the automated curing system pulls the LED light head through the liner, curing the resin as fast as 5.4 feet per minute.
Both the original Bluelight system and the redesigned model are capable of navigating and repairing 45- and 90-degree bends and some transitions. The Bluelight system resin is free of styrenes and VOCs, and the system meets or exceeds ASTM F1216.
“Our new design incorporates feedback from installers around the world to make it even more user-friendly and efficient to maximize productivity on every lining job,” says Josh Hood, senior product manager at HammerHead.
