Wire Sawing Sewage Flume Pipes

An overhaul of a Major Sewer complex in the heart of Glasgow required the removal of 1.6 meter diameter, 25mm thick steel flumes which were still 'live' and running with sewage

Gnat's Hilti WS15 Wire Saws were deployed, accurately and quickly Cold Cutting the Flume Pipes to cause minimum disruption.

Being a vital component of Glasgow City's Sewage infrastructure, the project had to completed quickly, efficiently and, as the Flumes were still carrying Sewage, very carefully!

“As the sewage flumes were live and still flowing at 60% capacity with running effluent we chose HILTI Wire Sawing Techniques to quickly Cold Cut and isolate three sections of the steel work.
Time was of the essence, so, with a great team working to a strict coordinated plan, each isolation was successfully completed in just over one hour.” said Nick Turnbull Managing Director.

The images and video here show Gnat’s deployment of the Hilti WS15 Saws from set-up to the successful removal of the steelwork.
