Professional Drain Cleaning Machines & Equipment Specialist.
Gorlitz Sewer & Drain, Inc. offers two complete types of trenchless pipe replacement systems, a chain operated puller and a wire rope operated puller. The chain operated Model GO 6000C is provided with a 5/8” diameter chain link puller while Model GO 6000R is equipped with a 3/4” diameter steel wire rope puller. However, the puller frame has been machined with all mounting holes to accept the chain and wire rope puller housing which can be added or exchanged at any time to offer the operator versatility of choosing the right equipment for each job. Both models are featured with a 12” stroke and recommended to burst and replace cast iron, clay, plastic and orangeburg pipes up to 6” in diameter. The trenchless pipe system can also be very helpful at splitting metal pipes at refineries, oil fields and underground facilities to simplify pipe removal and/or pipe replacement. Special diameter bursting heads may be required for this application.
Most operators prefer the wire rope Model GO 6000R system due to a continuous pull of up to 150 feet. Additional advantages include a faster pull, reduced weight of the wire per foot verses chain, simplified transportation and handling.
The advantage of the chain operated Model GO 6000C system is the non-slip gripping jaws even when excessive grease or mud is encountered. Chain pulls may also be required if tight pipe turns are encountered, excessive depth of the pipes, tight quarters or being to close to a structure or building.
Each complete 35 tons Trenchless Pipe Replacement System set-up includes the following components; (1) Power Supply Cart, (1) Puller Unit, (1) Clamp Fixture, (1) Heat Iron, (1) Facing Tool and all necessary accessories to complete a pipe bursting and pipe replacement job.
