Optimizing Rehab Cutter Performance with Cutter Bit Selection

Posted by Venay Sehgal Bhatia on Jun 11, 2019 12:16:00 PM

Sewer rehabilitation cutter operations require a great deal of attention to detail. Whether you’re using a cutter to reinstate lateral connections or to repair defective liner, whether you’re preparing for CIPP work or ready to grind away protruding taps—the job on hand is an important one and requires precision and experience. However, even the most advanced lateral and mainline rehabilitation and reinstatement cutters can’t work effectively without the right cutter bit. Cutter bits can make or break a job, and choosing the wrong one can damage your cutter, slow down your team and add unnecessary time and cost to projects. Getting acquainted with the various cutter bits’ purposes can increase the quality of rehabilitation projects, productivity of operators and lifetime of your rehabilitation cutter.

Staying Safe on a CIPP Installation Site

Posted by Nicole Lygo on Mar 28, 2019 4:48:09 PM

Today, nearly 50% of pipe repairs use cured-in-place pipe (CIPP). Though it was only invented in the early 1970s, CIPP’s ability to create a durable, corrosion-resistant new pipe without the hassle and danger of dig-and-replace made it an immediate success.

Point Repair or End-to-End?

Posted by Katie Breeden on Mar 21, 2019 11:49:51 AM

Determining the right sewer rehabilitation method for a given job is not always straightforward, as identifying a solution requires evaluating a pipe’s physical environment and condition. Without properly assessing these factors, municipalities risk only partially solving a problem with point repair. Or, an equally inefficient outcome, waste resources by doing more work than necessary with end-to-end repair. While some municipalities have rehab contractors that also provide consulting services to address what type of solution is best, at the end of the day someone must make a decision on how to repair the pipes. So what should be taken into account?
