Pitch Fibre re-rounding and repairs

Tuesday, June 24th, 2008

After re-rounding and Structural lining:

 

Between the 1940's and the 1970's pitch fibre drainage was a very cost effective and simple way of replacing and installing new drainage systems. However, due to the poor structural qualities of the material, pitch fibre over the years has begun to crush/misform and in certain cases totally fail. In a mjority of cases where the process of compression of pitch fibre is caught early enough, we have the facility to re-shape/re-form pitch fibre drainage back to the installed shape and size using a specialized winch and pully system, dragging a bullet shapped instrument through the affected section of drainage. Once the line has been re-formed, it's then essential to install a structural drain liner through the affected drain to ensure future structural integrity. In rare occasions re-forming may not be possible, leaving only one option available - Manual excavation and replacement. The above picture show a crushed section of pitched fibre drain, a diagram of the winch system used, along with a final photo of the completed repair to a reformed and lined drain. Other services realting to this service are: Drain re-forming, drain re-lining, drain reforming, drain relining, drain repairs, pitch fibre drainage problems, pitch fibre drainage, crushed pitch fibre, pitched fibre re-rounding, All provided by London Drainage Facilities Ltd.

Drain Excavation/Repairs London

Friday, June 6th, 2008

During excavation

After excavation

During works:                                                                    After works: After recently attending an emergency call from a central London School, our engineers were quick to diagnose the cause of the blockage as broken section of pipe work which had begun to colapse. Unfortunatley the location of the broken drain was beyond a foundation wall in the caretakers office. We were instructed to carry out a manual drain repair by means of excavation, which required a tunelling team. Works commenced early on a Saturday morning and with four very commited engineers working as a great team, the drainage system was up and running late Sunday evening, allowing the School to re-open as normal Monday.

New Drain Tracing Technology

Friday, June 6th, 2008

 

After many years of using drain locating equipment, we have finally found a system which offers tracing to a depth of 8 Metres, with an accuracy or 200mm A small sond is sent through the drain to be traced, propelled by either High Pressure Water, or standard drain rods. Once the sond is within the vicinity of the section of pipe to be traced, the hand held locating device is passed over the ground showing a mapping system on the screen. The map guidance feature eventually plots the drain line ready for excavtion/repair. We have recently completed two major excavtions based upon the guidance of this equipment, and in both cases the excavtions proved pin point accurate, thus minimising disruption and unnecessary excavation.
