When a lot of your work as a plumber involves trenchless pipe repair, you'll need to have the right equipment on hand. The proper equipment for the job makes a considerable difference in the success of the project, your costs and the amount of time it takes you to get the work done correctly. TRIC Tools has high-quality hydraulic pumps for pipe bursting equipment, and here are some tips on how to choose the right hydraulic pump for your projects.
The flow rate is one consideration for choosing a hydraulic pump. This is measured in gallons per minute or liters per minute. The flow rate is based on how much power the pump has. For example, pumps for pipe bursting systems need a high torque rate.
Type of Job
Residential and commercial trenchless pipe repairs are a lot different. Most residential sewer lines have a lateral configuration. These are buried four to six feet deep, but they may run a long distance. You'll benefit from our Hi-Flow 13 pump, which offers high-pressure fluid power. It pairs well with pipe bursting heads as well as CIPP repair processes.
Size of the Pipe
The pipe size is another factor to keep in mind when choosing a hydraulic pump. If you do a lot of municipal work, you'll need a pump that's both portable and powerful. Our Hi-Flow 36 is portable and delivers a high volume of water pressure. For commercial work that involves large-diameter pipes, our Hi-Flow 21 is a good choice. It's versatile for all methods of trenchless repair, and it works with 50-ton pullers.
