Pipe lining

Pipe Hunter are the exclusive importers and distributors of VFG pipe lining materials from Germany. For more information visit www.vfg.de We can line drains from as small as 40mm, through to 300mm diameter. Pipe Hunter has installed many kilometres of liner in sewerage, stormwater, air conditioning ducts, square downpipes and electrical conduits. The liner is structural, which means it can stand alone without the need to adhere to an existing pipe in order to gain structural integrity.

Vacuum excavation

Also known as Non-destructive digging, Non-destructive excavation, Pot-holing, Asset proving and Hydro excavation. Our system uses high pressure water jets to break up solid ground, while simultaneously vacuuming the debris into a 1.5t holding tank. This type of excavation is the method of choice when there are buried assets such as power, water, gas and fibre optic cables. The vacuum excavator does not damage the assets, providing a safe reliable method of excavation. Also suitable for cleaning stormwater pits, removing old insulation, cleaning roof gutters and cleaning liquid spills. Excavator operators should be aware that accidental damage to underground assets could send you bankrupt!!

CCTV pipeline inspections

Pipe Hunter can carry out cctv survey of pipelines from 30mm diameter, up to 300mm. Information is presented to you in DVD format, together with a written condition report. Our cameras are fitted with transmitters which allow for accurate location of the conduit. We can carry out complete surveys of entire facilities, compiling accurate drainage plans in hard copy or electronic GIS format. The GIS plan has the inspection footage imbedded, allowing you to inspect the drain in question with a click of your mouse.

Junction Lining

Our pipe lining technology is so advanced, it can be used to create a one-piece junction repair. The liner repairs the main run of drain and the lateral connection at the same time. Antiquated junction liners use a series of ropes to pull the liner into the drain, but this was found to be inaccurate and prone to failure. Pipe Hunter uses a German system which inverts the lateral section of liner into place, allowing us to position the liner precisely.

Cable locating

We choose to use Vermeer’s Verifier which is the latest instrument for locating buried metallic assets such as power, water, gas, and telecoms. Ideally, the Verifier is used in conjunction with our vacuum excavator allowing us to locate and expose the asset.

Robotic cutting of obstructions from within the pipe

Pipe Hunter has invested heavily in robotic cutting equipment which is capable of cutting obstructions from within the pipe. Imported from Denmark, and one of only 3 in Australia, our cutter operates in pipelines from 70mm diameter up to 300mm diameter. The robot can be used to cut liners from junctions after pipelining works or for milling solid deposits such as render. It is also capable of removing cross-bores and pickets before a liner is installed to repair the break.
