SAERTEX-LINER® H20 Type S+XR has successfully completed appraisal by the Water Services Association of Australia (WSAA) for the renovation of drinking water pipes.

Pipe Core, proud distributor for SAERTEX multiCom® in Australia and New Zealand, has welcomed the news that SAERTEX-LINER® H20 Type S+XR has successfully completed appraisal by the Water Services Association of Australia (WSAA) for the renovation of drinking water pipes. Alongside being successfully tested to AS/NZS 4020 standards by Australian Water Quality Centre (AWQC), this liner continues to allow installers to provide a pressure-resistant and hygienic option to their customers for the rehabilitation of potable water pipes.

“Our UV-cured GRP pipe liner is approved in over 14 countries and has also won the ISTT Innovation Award in 2019,” said SAERTEX multiCom® business development manager Katharina Helming. “This appraisal will give further confidence to the innovative technology used to create a liner with a smooth surface and low wall thickness to maximise flow rate in supply pipes.”

The tight-fitting, Class A classified independent pipe liner withstands inner and outer loads and can be installed for operating pressures up to 33 bar, making it a versatile UV-CIPP solution. “With a growing contingent of customers in Australia and New Zealand frequently choosing to install SAERTEX-LINERs, we are pleased to be able to back this product in the market with this successful appraisal,” said Pipe Core manager Sergej Fast.

It is possible to have a look at some of the impressive installations of SAERTEX-LINER® H2O from around the world, including across the Concorde Bridge in the city of Montreal, Québec , or how more than 500m of SAERTEX-LINER H2O potable water UV liner was installed in Valencia and how SAERTEX-LINER® H₂O proved itself again in the rehabilitation of potable water pipeline in Poland Success stories such as this demonstrate the versatility of the liner which can be used in circular host pipe profiles independent of the host pipe material.

SAERTEX multiCom® also continues to take a unique approach as a complete solution provider by supporting its customers with product experts and engineers who follow the project from initial planning and bidding to on-site support and project completion after installation.

Supported by Pipe Core, SAERTEX multiCom® also provides local certified theoretical and practical training for applications in gravity and pressure pipe systems to customers in Australia and New Zealand.

“This comprehensive training program is an opportunity for our experts to pass their knowledge on to the installers,” said Helming. “Our advanced training opportunities are aimed at teaching the products and technologies required for trenchless pipeline rehabilitation using practical, real-life content.”

According to Fast, this product is a success story in the trenchless technology world. “With so many complex and varied projects now realised right across Australia and New Zealand with SAERTEX-LINER® MULTI, we are excited to have this latest WSAA appraisal to help customers towards future potable water projects,” he said.
