Kobus Gas Pipe Puller pulls pipe!
The Kobus Gas Pipe Puller has been going through a vigorous testing schedule over the last few months.
Designed by Kobus Services Ltd based in the midlands, supported by Randle Engineering in Warwick & manufactured in Coalville by NS Engineering Solutions. The puller is designed to replace existing gas pipes in the ground with new pipe work as required.
The aim of the machine is to create a method of extracting and renewing ¾ inch service pipe avoiding the need to open cut the gas service.The pipe puller has been funded through the inovation department at the National Grid & the scope of the project included, Concept Design Refinement, Design and Development, Prototype Manufacture and Build plus field trials and proof of concept tasks.
