Nueva De Steve Vick: Mini Macaw Pipe Cracker
The highly versatile Mini MACAW is powered either from the third service or breaker hydraulics of an excavator, from a standard power pack or by using a specially designed hand pump making it suitable for even the most inaccessible site.
El método tradicional de romper un principal de hierro fundido ha sido utilizar una variedad de herramientas de mano tales como un martillo o ‘Podger’, but these procedures have long been associated with health and safety concerns as pieces of broken metal can fly up to cause injury to operatives.
Fitted with a hydraulic ram, the Mini MACAW provides controlled pressure on the cast iron – just sufficient to crack the pipe, affording a safer working environment. This controlled pressure, which may be stopped immediately once the pipe splits, allows the Mini MACAW to be used safely on mains previously inserted with PE without the risk of damaging the new pipe.
Una ventaja importante de la lapa es que no requiere acceso alrededor de toda la circunferencia de la tubería, minimizando así excavación.
Weighing just 35kg the Mini MACAW can be manually located on the main by two operatives. A choice of pin slots allows 4”, 6” or 8” cast iron pipes to be accommodated without the need for additional equipment.
The MACAW Pipe Cracker is available for breaking out 8” to 24” diameter cast iron mains.
