Obstructions in pipelines can cause residential and industrial clients alike unnecessary expense and inconvenience. If not dealt with, obstructions in pipelines can cause damage to the pipeline like blockages. And further treatment might be needed to resolve the problem. If dealt with in time, we can remove these obstructions with no digging or possibly no repair work needed to the pipes or drains. This is called Robotic Cutting. McBreen Environmental can remove problem obstructions in pipelines with our new state of the art Robotic Cutter.
Robotic cutting is an exceptional system as it means that we can cut out most intrusions, areas of encrustation as well as concrete and stones. It really means that we don’t have to excavate if we come across obstructions in pipelines.
How Robotic Cutting Works:
The cutter travels up into a section of pipework and removes any intruding lateral or rubber ring without the need for excavating the problem areas. By using this process customers are saving valuable time and valuable money. Our new state of the art IBG system allows us to repair lateral connections in relined pipes as well as cut trough obstructions. These can include roots, rock, ground, encrustations, and concrete. We also commonly use this system for trimming back intruding connections in the main sewer.
