Herridge Feeder Main 1500mm

The 1500mm Herridge Feedermain is a Prestressed Concrete Cylinder Pipe (PCCP), approximately 6 km long, exhibiting signs of deterioration. The pipe was dormant for 2 years with fears of catastrophic failure that required rehabilitation.

Based on the degree of deterioration, the CFRP renewal systems were designed either as a stand-alone or as a composite system with the concrete inner core of the PCCP. The feedermain runs under major crowded roads/highways, where it was extremely difficult to repair/renew the feedermain through excavation. Hence, the trenchless technique was required.

TCI CarbonStrong SPL structural liner, combined with TCI ProTecStrong SPL  protective coating system were used to renew the existing feedermain and provide the required environmental protection for both the concrete and the CFRP repair material.

TCI introduced a new termination joint specifically developed for CFRP renewal of PCCP watermains. The new termination detail and TCI coating system passed a comprehensive water tightness testing, where TCI products have shown that the finished coating system can withstand at least triple the applied internal pressure without showing any signs of leakages, especially at the CFRP termination joints.

The feedermain was put into service in late 2016 and is currently working fine with no issues.
