Envirologics partnered with Panton McLeod of the United Kingdom to demonstrate the Tomahawk pipe cleaning system in London for the Thames Water utility.

The pipes cleaned were 4” cast iron watermains, circa 1889. Tomahawk successfully displayed its “best in class” cleaning and preparation capability to several UK based applicators and utilities. The pipe sections were cleaned, prepared and inspected in 2 to 3 hours per pipe section. Following pipe cleaning, the watermain was lined using a Sprayed in Place Pipe (SIPP) process.
