TENAX PIPE GUARD

 


TENAX Pipe Guard is specifically developed to provide protection for anticorrosive pipe coating during handling, laying and operation.

 

Characteristics:
• Manufactured using a special polymer extrusion process
• Thickness and mesh sizes to suit all occasions
• Resistant to chemicals normally found in the earth
• High level of resistance to compression, traction and tearing

 

Advantages:
During Handling:
• Easy to use
• Drastically reduces damage encountered in pipe storage
• Protects pipe during loading, transportation and unloading

 

During Installation:
• Absorbs impact during laying and back-filing with uneven levels (gravel, rocks, etc.)
• Protects against protruding rocks
• Substitute for earth and sand beds making them unnecessary
• Limits friction between structures and the pipe (manholes, inlets, etc.)

 

During Operation:
• Permits the expansion and contraction of the pipeline due to thermal action and ground settlement which reduces stress on the pipeline
• Allows sand and small particles to filter through the mesh and form an even protective surface along the anti-corrosive lining of the pipe
• Protects the pipe against future excavations in the area.

Rock Shield Pipeline Protection to provide protection for anticorrosive pipe coating

 

Installation:

Rock Shield Pipeline Protection with large cirumference - Pipe wrap mesh

 

For pipes with a circumference of less than 6” in relation to the width of the mesh:

• Lay and unroll the mesh parallel to the pipe which is to be protected
• Place the mesh beneath the pipe
• Wrap the pipe with the mesh, overlapping the edges by around 6”
• Fix the mesh with plastic bands or by heating

 

 

 

Rock Shield Pipeline Protection with small cirumference - Pipe wrap mesh

 

For pipes with a large circumference:

• Cut the mesh into pieces of more than 6” of the circumference of the pipe
• Wrap the pipe with the mesh overlapping the previously installed mesh by around 6”
• Fix the mesh with plastic bands or by heating

 

 

As “capping”:
• Unroll the mesh parallel to the already buried pipe to be protected
• Lay the mesh onto the pipe so it covers about the upper half of its circumference
• Proceed with burying the now protected pipe
• Limits friction between structures and the pipe (manholes, inlets, etc.)
