|Pioneering ‘A’ Frame design that is extremely lightweight yet very robust for ‘in-trench’ conditions… the Frame folds and can be locked ‘flat’ for ease of carrying and transportation.
The principle of operation is that the squeeze is carried out, the Top and Bottom beams are then mechanically locked together and then the ‘A’ Frame is detatched and used in conjunction with a second beam set. Using this concept all four squeeze points are accomplished using just one ‘A’ Frame assembly and one Power Unit.
The squeeze is carried out, the Top and Bottom beams are then mechanically locked together and then the hydraulic cylinders are ‘unclipped’ and used in conjunction with a second beam set. Using this concept… all four squeeze points are accomplished using just one pair of hydraulic cylinders. Available in two options… as shown, with a pneumatic input / hydraulic output power unit for easy and safe operation from a compressor, or with a hydraulic hand-pump in lieu of the power unit and ‘spring return’ hydraulic cylinder.
The Top Squeeze beam is fitted with ‘Pipe Stops’ to suit the diameter and wall thickness (SDR) of the pipe to be squeezed. These Pipe stops form a positive ‘stop’ between the Top and Bottom beams and hence optimise the squeeze gap in order to ensure the pipe is not over-squeezed.

Pipe Stops – SOU250 A set consists of 8 x Stops. Each Stop can be rotated through 180° thus giving 2 x Diameter / SDR combinations. Stops can be custom made for any specified pipe. Codes as follows are for individual Stops (other sizes are available on request):
|Pipe Range:||Pipe diameters between 180mm – 250mm|
|Application:||For use on PE pipe of differing diameter/SDR combinations dependent on which ‘stops’ are fitted.|
|Weight (Total kit):||176 Kg|
