Work period: 06/06/2023

Site: Roccaforte Mondovì

Technology used: AMEX

Oval pipe dimensions: DN1200

Length of rehabilitated section: 30 m

The local rehabilitation activity with AMEX involved the insertion of n. 3 rubber gaskets supported by steel tension belts, operating exclusively through the existing accesses without resorting to open excavations. The rubber sleeve placed on the defective point is fixed to the pipe by means of two or more steel bands which, once tensioned by means of a hydraulic device, are blocked by wedges. The Amex, thanks to its elasticity, guarantees a perfect seal between the two parts of the defect, even in the event of shocks or vibrations from the ground.
