The Pipeline™ in Pipe Cabling Product
The Pipeline™ is a unique cabling system manufactured specifically for in-line cabling of newly constructed pipelines. The product can also be retrofitted into existing pipes.
The 4mm galvanised steel polyethylene coated product is designed for long term exposure to chlorinated water, and ideal for potable water pipes.
The cable is suitable for all pressurised and depressurised pipe installations.
The cable design is uniform to allow sealing plates to be installed onto the cable at either end in the event of a pressurised pipe inspection.
The cabling allows the pull through of leak detection, monitoring, cleaning and inspection technology in the event of a failed hydrostatic test or leak, or for routine cleaning or testing. This product remains in the pipeline as long as required.
The cable is installed into the pipeline during the pipe construction process (can also be retro-fitted), with strategic isolation points on the pipe. The cable is then held in place by the compression of a gate valve or fitting either end.
In the event of a pressurised technology pull through, the cable is passed through a seal arrangement and attached to a cabling device for the pull through of required technology. During this procedure a secondary cable is attached and in turn is pulled into the pipeline replacing the existing cable. The original cable can be replaced, or alternatively be pulled back into the pipe.

The isolation valves or fittings are opened either end, and the pull through technique is then undertaken. Once the pull through is complete, the isolation of valves or fittings is undertaken.
Utilising the Pipeline product is a way of future proofing and monitoring all high risk pipes or conduits.
Strategic installation is advised on pipes close to river crossings and train lines.
The Pipeline™ is a DWI approved product and supplied in 1km drum lengths
