The 540-ton CCFRPM jacking pipe chosen for the project was manufactured by Hobas Pipe USA.
Wilson Okamoto specified only two products for the microtunneled pipes--concrete steel cylinder, or prestressed concrete cylinder pipe (the pressure version of regular reinforced concrete pipe), and CCFRPM. The choice was limited because of the demanding application and installation.
The pipe specifications required the CCFRPM pipes to meet ASTM D3262 with minimum stiffness classes of 36, 46, and 72 psi depending on the depth of cover and the installation means.
The quick assembly of the FWC joints and the lightweight CCFRPM pipe sections provided installation ease that helped in meeting the completion goal.
The 20-ft long CCFRPM pipe sections were carried in, one at a time, and homed into place with the help of the dingy and transporter cart.
Because of the construction limitations at this busy airport, installer Colich & Sons (Gardena, California) found several reasons to choose CCFRPM pipe for the entire project.
The answer might just be why FIOBAS CCFRPM pipes have so many leak-free installations!
Hobas CCFRPM potable water pipes and joint gaskets comply with NSF standard 61 for drinking water components.
HOBAS Pipe USA manufactures centrifugally cast, fiberglass-reinforced, polymer mortar (CCFRPM) pipe.
