The innovative Tomahawk™ process utilizes an airstream generated by standard vac trucks and airborne abrasives to remove internal tuberculation, corrosion and old lining materials such as bitumen and coal tar from old deteriorated water mains. The process quickly dries and prepares the pipe for immediate liner application and promotes excellent bond to the pipe wall. The Tomahawk Scout™ can be utilized to target clean around crucial areas such as service connections to promote the highest possible bond ensuring a long-term, leak-free connection.
The Tomahawk™ pipe preparation process meets and exceeds the pipe preparation requirements for the newly released (June 2016) ASTM F3182-16 “Standard Practice for the Application of Spray-Applied Polymeric Liners Inside Pipelines for Potable Water”.
Under section 7.6, Pipeline Cleaning and Preparation, ASTM F3182 states;
