HydraLiner NSF, ICC Certifications Increase Customers’ Access To Lateral Lining Rehab Projects

HammerHead Trenchless Equipment’s HydraLiner cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) lining system has received two of the industry’s most respected certifications.

Independent testing by NSF International and the ICC Evaluation Service (ICC-ES) determined that HammerHead HydraLiner meets or surpasses high-level plumbing and ventilation standards. Both organizations certified HydraLiner consumables in early January. The endorsements will now help CIPP rehabilitation contractors access projects in some of the country’s most restrictive markets.

HydraLiner is a complete CIPP system for lateral pipe rehabilitation with inversion drums, wet out tables and trailers. The NSF International and ICC-ES certifications specifically endorse the safety and quality of HydraLiner consumables. These include liners for rehabilitation of pipes two to 12 inches in diameter and a variety of epoxy resins for different job requirements and working conditions.

The HydraLiner product line had already been certified to ASTM F‐1216 standards. Such independent, third-party certifications are referenced by federal, state and municipal regulatory agencies during the approval process prescribing which products may be used in projects under a particular agency’s jurisdiction.

“The NSF and ICC-ES certifications can be considered as a step above,” said Ryan Boldan, lateral product manager of HammerHead Trenchless Equipment. “Project designers refer to these certifications as guidance when their projects require such a high level of specification.”

The endorsements also reassure project stakeholders of the safety, durability and quality of the products. “These certifications are additional reassurance from two independent, highly regarded testing agencies that only the best materials are being used in their projects,” said Matt Gabrielse, certification manager for the HydraLiner product line.

The HydraLiner system can be used in a variety of CIPP applications including sanitary sewers, storm sewers, process piping, electrical conduits and ventilation systems. The system repairs cracked or broken pipes, eliminates future root intrusion, bridges fractures and gaps, and stops both infiltration and exfiltration. The system is effective with most pipe materials including clay, cast iron, PVC, ABS and concrete. The system will even rehabilitate pipes whose lines contain bends up to 90 degrees and transition from one pipe diameter to another.
