System components

  • GEROfit® NEXUS wire connectors, extensions for a reliable connection after the welding process of the locating wire system.

    Wire connectors

    Wire connectors in different lengths for connecting the integrated locating wire system in the welding area.
  • Gerodur GEROfit® sealing tape, for a watertight secondary coating of the stripped weld seam area of GEROfit® REX and GEROfit® NEXUS pressure pipes.

    Sealing tape

    Highly tear-resistant GEROfit® sealing tape for a watertight reprotection of welded joints and exposed pipe surfaces.
  • Gerodur GEROfit® blue fabric tape, for mechanical protection of the stripped weld seam area of GEROfit® REX and GEROfit® NEXUS pressure pipe systems.

    Fabric tape

    Scratch-resistant fabric tape for reprotection of the welding area. Easy handling thanks to subsequent curing. High flexibility when the pipe is bent.


Peeler Set

The power pack for protective jacket pipes according to PAS 1075 type 3. For quick and easy removal of the protective jacket.

Suitable installation

  • Gerodur laying in sand bed Computer graphics

    Sand bedding

    When laying in a sand bed, the excavated material must be replaced with a sand bedding in accordance with DIN EN 805. Restrictions on the grain sizes of the bedding material must be observed.
  • Gerodur laying without sand bed Computer graphics

    Without sand bedding

    Due to the verification by an independent testing institute, the installation is possible without a sand bed. This eliminates the additional expense of replacing the excavation with a sand bedding in accordance with DIN EN 805 (transport, landfill).
  • Gerodur ploughing method Computer graphics


    In the ploughing method, the soil is displaced by a plough blade and the pipeline is placed on the bottom of the soil.
  • Gerodur milling process Computer graphics


    In the milling process, a pipe trench is cut into the subsoil by machine and the pipeline is laid on the bottom of the trench.
  • Gerodur pipe bursting computer graphics

    Pipe bursting

    Static pipe bursting is the renewal of the old pipeline along the same of the old pipe route, which is shattered by the bursting head and the remaining fragments are pressed into the surrounding soil.
  • Gerodur Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) computer graphics

    Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD)

    The new installation by HDD is usually carried out in three successive work steps. With the continuous pilot borehole, which is controlled by positioning the route is determined. This is followed by the widening of the borehole and the pulling in of the pipe string.
  • Gerodur relining installation computer graphics


    In the case of relining with annular space, the new pipe string with a smaller cross-section is pulled into the cleaned old pipeline using a pull-in device.
  • Gerodur soil displacement method computer graphics

    Soil Displacement Method

    In the soil displacement method, a pneumatically operated displacement hammer, a so-called "rocket", is used to excavate an underground cavity. The new pipeline is then pulled into it.
