Adept Civil Group, which specialises in the supply and installation of water and sewerage drainage pipelines, pump stations and associated services in Victoria, utilised kwik-ZIP HD-75 spacers to protect and centralise an IPLEX DN150 Restrain TM pipe installation during the relocation of sewer for the multi-million dollar Chandler Highway Upgrade in Victoria.
The kwik-ZIP HD75 spacers were selected and installed at 1m intervals to support the carrier pipe and protect it from abrasion or damage during the pipe installation. Well suited for use in open bores, the kwik-Zip HD series spacers’ curved bow design allows them to be easily pulled or pushed over rough ground surfaces.
Because the kwik-ZIP’s spacers have no metal parts and are made from Acetal POM — a high-grade thermoplastic that is flexible — they are extremely tough and have a low coefficient of friction.
Additionally, the spacers simple and efficient installation process does not require any special tools.
“Kwik-ZIP’s HD75 spacers were quick and easy to install and helped to make the carrier pipe installation a trouble-free process,” said Adept Civil Group Construction Manager Microtunelling, Brett Moore.
