HammerHead ® Trenchless attended the 2023 Water & Wastewater Equipment, Treatment & Transport (WWETT) Show at the Indianapolis
Convention Center, Feb. 21 through Feb. 23, 2023. Among its show
highlights, the company hosted 12 live product demonstrations that span three focal areas, including a real-time Bluelight LED lining demonstration in the Live Demo area of the WWETT Show floor.
HammerHead application specialists will perform a 20-foot above-ground, air inversion CIPP demonstration, utilizing the most advanced light-curing system available: Bluelight LED. During the 30-minute demonstration, guests will experience the lateral lining process from inversion to cure.
The first, “CIPP Technologies,” explores common approaches to cured-in-place practices and quality testing measures to ensure resilience. The second, “HydraSlitter Lead Pipe Replacement,” showcases a new product solution for the nationwide drive to replace lead and copper pipes.
“It’s always been a focus of HammerHead to share knowledge and best practices within the industry,” said Jeff Gabrielse, general manager, HammerHead Trenchless. “We have tremendous in-house expertise, so these live demonstrations are the ideal platform for sharing – and even gaining – insight from customers.”
Gabrielse added, “Another facet of our booth is an area dedicated to HHU Online. Our training and certification program is unmatched in the industry and the new online platform is an extension of our in-person offering.” HammerHead University Online launched in December 2022 and features free online courses, covering a variety of HammerHead products and applications from company experts.
In addition to sharing new products, updates to current products and live
demonstrations, the HammerHead booth featured a new experience in the form of shopping kiosks. “We’ll have kiosks set up, enabling customers to place online orders directly in the booth,” Gabrielse said. “So, customers will order at WWETT and have the items at their shop when they return home,” he added.
About the Bluelight LED CIPP Lining System
The newly redesigned Bluelight LED CIPP lining system for laterals and small drain pipes is the most advanced light-curing system available. The innovative technology empowers CIPP lining pros by alleviating the time pressures of other CIPP systems. The specially formulated resin only cures under light in the “blue” wavelength, giving installers a significantly longer working time between liner wet-out and curing. Once installed, the automated curing system pulls the LED light head through the liner – curing the resin almost instantly – up to five times faster than other methods.
About The HydraSlitter System
Making its WWETT Show debut, HydraSlitter is a compact kitted system that uses the company’s Same Path® Technology method to replace lead pipes without digging, minimizing the impact to a property. This simple, efficient way to replace lead pipes is critical as communities tackle the problem of lead contaminants in drinking water.
