The SLX1300 trenchless pipe extraction system for small diameter steel natural gas services uses a new method of replacing coated and bare steel gas service lines 0.5 to 1.25 inches in diameter, up to 100 feet in length.

The hydraulically powered SLX1300 unit produces up to 13.3 tons of pulling force to extract the pipe from the ground while simultaneously pulling new HDPE or MDPE pipe into the same location as the existing pipe, reducing risk to surrounding utilities, the company says.

An on-board pipe shear that the operator engages to cut the pipe material as it is extracted into manageable segments for easy disposal. The compact size of the unit requires a working pit approximately 4X4 feet, and the entire system can be transported in the back of a standard pickup truck.
