Tomahawk Airborne Lining - NSF/ANSI 61 Certified
Following Tomahawk cleaning and preparation, any lining technology can be applied to the pipe wall, including CIPP (cured-in-place pipe) or SIPP (sprayed-in-place pipe) technologies. The right lining technology choice depends on the condition of the pipe.
Tomahawk is currently evolving into a full pipe rehab system by adding a proprietary airborne lining technology. This application will be a fast, low cost, non-structural, AWWA Class I barrier coat to improve water quality and flow while extending the pipe's service life by decades. The lining process uses the same airstream as cleaning (vac truck), thus requiring minimal changeover.

The inspection video below is of a 6" watermain that was lined with an AWWA Class 1 barrier coat using the patented Tomahawk airborne lining process. The video provides a close inspection of the pipe wall and two pipe joints, showing complete coverage. The air driven camera peels the image back at the outer viewing edge in order to inspect both sides of the joint. Stopping the video right at the joint will show this incredible feature. More importantly this shows Tomahawk's lining capability and full coverage at pipe joints.
