The Slip-Fast pipe pushing system from the TT Group brings a new dimension to the world of Sliplining. Gone are the labour intensive stop / start operations that were required by pneumatic and hydraulic pipe pushing machines. Gone are metallic gripping jaw shells for different pipe sizes and gone is the time consuming threading of winch cable when pipe pulling.
The Slip-Fast is a very fast, lightweight and easy to set up pipe pushing system. Setup is aided by the pipe pushing rig being safely positioned against the back face of a pre-excavated trench. Adjustment of the two pairs of twin taper drive rollers easily accommodate different sized cable and PE pipe diameters. Height and approach angle of the pipe pushing rig is easily adjusted via retractable legs, with the rollers made from vulcanised rubber to protect the new cables and pipes.
Once the cable or pipe has been gripped by the rollers, no further handling is necessary and the speed of propulsion can be infinitely varied. More than twice as fast as existing hydraulic stop / start pipe pushers, therefore, the subsequent savings on installation costs, time, labour and physical effort, truly make the Slip-Fast system worthy of its name.
