The GEROfit® R protective jacket pipe was developed especially for modern new installation and rehabilitation procedures (according to PAS 1075 type 3). The unique advantage - butt welding without time-consuming peeling work.
Medium pipe in black (if necessary with 4 longitudinal stripes distributed around the circumference corresponding to the medium to be transported) | Medium pipe with complete metre marking according to DVGW | Coloured protective jacket with four longitudinal green stripes distributed around the circumference | Protective jacket with complete metre marking according to DVGW
Medium pressure pipe according to DIN EN 12201 or DIN EN 1555 for underground installation according to DVGW approval | installation possible with and without sand bedding | suitable for trenchless installation according to DVGW regulations
GEROfit® R protective jacket pipes can be processed using the butt welding method without prior peeling of the outer protective jacket | permanent external monitoring of the PE 100-RC materials and the pipe | Gerodur drinking water pipes with additional regular testing of the organoleptics - Qplus Label
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.
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).
In the ploughing method, the soil is displaced by a plough blade and the pipeline is placed on the bottom of the soil.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
