Integral Towing Head from GPS Excels on Site
GPS PE Pipe Systems has developed an innovative factory sealed pipe with integral towing head, eliminating the risk of towing head failure and reducing installation times for trenchless installations.
The new Towing Head is fused onto the pipe at the factory, removing the need for the additional site time and equipment usually required to prepare and assemble the towing head. When used in conjunction with GPS Excel 3c, the result is a clean, capped, coiled pipe that can be delivered straight to site and is ready for the installer to simply hook up the shackle and go.
Jon Brian, GPS Product Manager explains: “Use of mechanically fixed towing heads has been a continuing problem for ‘no dig’ installations. While there are other solutions available to address this problem, they all have cost implications and require complex on-site installation. With the new Excel 3c pipe and Towing Head there is no site preparation or assembly required, so there can be no installation errors, no failure due to the towing head coming away from the pipe and no risk of contamination. We believe it will make a significant difference to the success, time and cost of ‘no dig’ projects.”
