ABS Trenchless have developed Pulling Heads to safely connect PE-pipe to their respective pulling device. Welded joints are unnecessary, as our Pulling Heads are easy to use, reusable and require no special equipment or tools for use.
According to the sectional drawings, the Pipe Pulling head is simply fitted onto the end of the plastic pipe. By rotating the pulling eye (1) tight, its screw jack will be rotated into the expander cone (5). In this way the Expansion-Gripper elements (3) are joggling with the inner side of the plastic pipe (6). This creates a stable connection. An increase in pulling forces creates a tighter grip. Every part is available ex stock and can be amended to suit individual requirements.
