HydraTite® (Internal Joint Seal System)
Newly Installed Leaking Ductile Iron Pipe
Municipal Drinking Water
The challenge was to stop water leaking at the joints of a newly installed ductile iron pipe. The 30 & 36 inch ductile iron pipe had been cement lined and water was leaking in through the cement lining at the joints.
To eliminate leaking joints the HydraTite® Internal Joint Seal was proposed as a solution. The HydraTite® Seal is a mechanical trenchless remediation for the joints, while preserving the new ductile iron pipe.
Surface prep included chipping out the cement at the joints prior to installation of the HydraTite® Seals. After approval of the repair by the client, the HydraTite® Seals were manufactured and installed.
Once surface prep was completed nineteen seals were installed. The HydraTite® Seals eliminated the infiltration of the water at the joints. Rapid installation including the surface prep had the entire job complete within four days.
