UK based VIP-WECO Jet Aire, a business associated with VIP Polymers in which GIL are invested have recently completed a contract with Joyce Construction of Corbridge, working on a Sir Robert McAlpine site, to install two 1050mm VIP-WECO internal repair seals. This was the first time that Jet Aire had installed these seals on such a large diameter pipe. The project required the pipe to be cleansed using high pressure water jetting and then man entry by a qualified team of operatives, using confined space equipment. Once in place the VIP-WECO seals were installed using a hydraulically operated a hand pump with the completed repair designed to last for at least 50+ years. The seals were installed in less than a day and was performed with no disruption to the client.
VIP-WECO seals are available in diameters ranging from DN185 to DN3500+ and are suitable for potable and drainage applications. For further information, please visit:
