For customers needing windows cut in ductile iron or steel pipes, we offer a service that is reported to be up to 50% faster than traditional methods. Suitable for cutting windows in the pipe or for full removal of the pipe.
For use on ductile iron, we use the new Rapid Window Cutter which we developed in conjunction with Wales and West Utilities. It can quickly and safely cut windows in ductile iron mains – for example, cutting an average top tee size window in less than 12 minutes.
For steel pipes, we use the Rapid Window Cutter for Steel which is capable of cutting a typical top tee size window in less than 30 minutes.
Rapid Window Cutters are compact, handheld units for smaller excavations and avoid the need for digging under the main. The unit has precise depth controls, keeping the blade at a safe distance from an inserted pipe.
