New US certifications for HammerHead22 April 2015
HammerHead Trenchless Equipment's HydraLiner cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining system has received two of the industry's most highly respected certifications. Independent testing by NSF International and the ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) determined that HammerHead HydraLiner meets or surpasses high-level plumbing and ventilation standards. Both organizations certified HydraLiner consumables in early January. The endorsements will now help CIPP rehabilitation contractors access projects in some of the country's most restrictive markets.
HydraLiner is a complete CIPP system for lateral pipe rehabilitation with inversion drums, wet out tables and trailers. The NSF International and ICC-ES certifications specifically endorse the safety and quality of HydraLiner consumables. These include liners for rehabilitation of pipes 2 to 12 inches in diameter and a variety of epoxy resins for different job requirements and working conditions.
The HydraLiner product line had already been certified to ASTM F-1216 standards. Such independent, third-party certifications are referenced by federal, state and municipal regulatory agencies during the approval process prescribing which products may be used in projects under a particular agency's jurisdiction.
"The NSF and ICC-ES certifications can be considered as a step above," said Ryan Boldan, lateral product manager of HammerHead Trenchless Equipment. "Project designers refer to these certifications as guidance when their projects require such a high level of specification."
