Hydro Excavation

EXCAVATION SOLUTIONS FOR:

• Oil & Gas Pipelines
• Utility Sector
• Transportation Sector 
• Industrial Sector
• Engineering Sector
• Mining Sector

APPLICATIONS:

• Daylighting (Visual confirmation of buried lines)
• Slot trenching
• Utility pole holes and piling holes 
• Debris removal and cleanups
• Service and splice pits
• Pipeline and utility crossing
• Directional drilling test holes
• LT Licensed to haul hazardous waste

Benefits:

Risk reduction — water is far less destructive than steel backhoe buckets!
Cost reduction — by reducing an excavation’s footprint, restoration and paving costs are minimized.
Time savings — smaller precision excavations typically need less time than larger ones.


Sewer Maintenance

CCTV Inspections

KJV can provide video surveys and reports for new construction, new service connection points, or existing pipelines to confirm the condition of the pipe.
• Closed Circuit Television inspection from 150mm upwards.
• PACP Certified Operators.
• Inspect and record pipe condition.
• Identify cracks, offset joints, breaks, roots and intruding service connections.

Pipeline Cleaning

• High velocity water jet (Hydraulic Cleaning) frees and moves debris, grease, rocks, sand & other obstructions from sewer lines to the manhole where it’s removed from the system by the vacuum system.
• Specialized nozzles cut roots, ream hard deposits, mineral build up & protruding laterals.
• Does not cause structural damage to the existing pipe.

Trenchless Point REpairs

When pipe damage is limited to one specific location full length lining is not required. We install FRP point repairs to the location in need of repair. We first clean and CCTV inspect the pipe to identify the problem and its location. The repair length and thickness is determined and we prepare and install the point repair, a post repair video is prepared and provided to the owner. All of this is accomplished without digging up the repair site!
