Steve Vick International (SVI) has an impressive line-up of innovations that will be demonstrated at No Dig Live 2022.
One of the most talked about is the new PE Pipe Cutter, a joint NIA project with Northern Gas Networks. The PE Pipe Cutter is a circumferential cutter capable of cutting large PE pipe in a single rotation, quickly and safely – on pipe diameters above 250 mm with a wall thickness of up to 70 mm.
Additionally, SVI’s Pipe Feeder for pre-insulated pipe, commonly used for District Heating will be demonstrated. The Pipe Feeder is an attachment that fits onto the SVI trailers and enables the insulated pipe to be pulled off the trailer with ease. As the pipe passes through the feeder it is straightened, allowing for easier dispensing.
SVI’s full range of Pipe Handlers and Pipe Cutters will also be on display and available for demonstration. Of particular interest is the Rapid Rotary Cutter for ductile and steel which is now capable of cutting pipe up to 12 in (300 mm) diameter.
SVI’s Contract Service techniques, ESEAL and FBOS will also be showcased and there will be a chance to see one of SVI’s latest innovations, the new PE Live Head for Live Mains Insertion. The NEW 90 mm diameter PE Live Head, for Live Mains Insertion is an internally electro-fused Live Head which offers a streamlined shape with the Live Head sitting flush with the PE. This allows for easy insertion into a 4 in (100 mm) diameter main and makes negotiating bends less challenging. The NEW PE head can also be used on 4 in to 8 in (100 mm to 200 mm) diameter mains.
