Tomahawk™ pipe rehab technologies were demonstrated in Indianapolis on February 18 to a large gathering of government officials, utility executives and industry leaders from the USA as well as a delegation from China. This event was conducted in partnership with Global Water Technologies Inc., IUPUI of Indianapolis, the Trenchless Technology Center at Louisiana Tech University and Envirologics Engineering Inc.
The demonstration started with watermain cleaning using Tomahawk's dry, airborne abrasive process. A high velocity pipe airstream was created using a vac truck before injecting stone into the airstream to remove tuberculation, corrosion and other deposits from the pipe walls. After cleaning, the pipe was inspected using the air-driven Tomahawk Scout™ CCTV camera device. To complete the demo, the pipe was lined using Tomahawk's airborne lining technology which produces a barrier coat to prevent future interior corrosion and water quality problems.
Envirologics continues to expand the capabilities of the Tomahawk pipe rehab system as the demand for new water infrastructure rehab solutions intensifies.
