Products - Snapit Manufacturing

Designed for use with the Perco Expandit hydraulic pipe bursting system, Snapit is a proprietary jointed pipe. A range of outside diameters from 250mm to 1000mm is available. A full list of sizes is shown in the table below.

The pipe can be supplied in any quantity. As well as being used with the Perco Expandit hydraulic pipe bursting system, it is also suitable for other applications including landfill and ducting. The pipe joint is a mechanical joint using a male/female fitting. It also uses an EPDM 'O' ring to seal the joint once snapped together.

The pipe can be cut to any length to suit the application: however in UK standard manholes (nominally 1200mm internal diameter), it is standard practice to use pipe lengths of 790mm, as they fit neatly into the manhole, and are light enough to be manually lifted.

Snapit pipes are manufactured using standard polyethylene pipes to W.I.S 4.32.09 (MDPE/HDPE) or W.I.S 4.32.02 (HPPE). This ensures compliance with all the relevant UK water specification criteria. These higher quality base materials result in a better performing product.
