Clean Water

PIPELINE CLEANING

Kilbride’s bespoke cameras, cleaning vehicles and patented cleaning head - the Typhoon, are designed to clean large diameter pipes including:

  • Water mains
  • Sea outfalls
  • Culverts
  • Tank reservoirs and pipework
  • Oil and process pipelines

Watch how our Typhoon system works.

The system has flexibility to be deployed in diverse environments and applications.  125km of mains pipelines have been cleaned with diameters of pipes varying in diameters of 200mm to 1800mm.  The system is capable of cleaning pipelines, no matter their composition, from asbestos cement to PVC.  The Typhoon system cleans pipelines where capacity, flow rates and water quality have been compromised, using recycled water to adjust the drive, water pressure, angle and fan spread.  Up to 1200 metres of cleaning can be undertaken from a single point of entry.

With the knowledge and expertise of our management team, we can provide a safe, efficient and cost-effective solution to any issues.
