HammerHead launches new QuickLok inversion drums for CIPP
HammerHead Trenchless, a Charles Machine Works Company, have announced their new product intros for the 2019 WWETT show in Indianapolis February 21-23. Visitors to their booth #5206 will be able to see their all-new QuickLok inversion drums along with new cam-locking nozzle adaptors.
The QuickLok's design offers cured-in-place-pipe (CIPP) installers what HammerHead calls the most user-friendly and best performing inversion drum in the industry. With two drum sizes capable of holding up to 125 feet & 225 feet of 4" liner respectively, the QuickLok features a patent-pending, single-lever lockdown that gives operators a positive seal and secure latch every time.
"The single-lever lockdown feature comes directly from user input after more than a year of in-the-field testing," said Matt Gabrielse, product manager of HammerHead Trenchless CIPP lines. "Time is everything once you've mixed the resin. If operators need access to the drum again for an adjustment on the fly, the QuickLok permits them to do it quickly, saving valuable minutes."
Other user-inspired features include extra viewing ports and a detachable spindle wheel that makes it easier to navigate tight areas. Once in place, the wheel may be reattached to either side of the drum, accommodating workspace limitations or the preference of the operator.
Along with the new drums, HammerHead is also launching new cam-locking nozzle adaptors. Compatible with nozzles from other manufacturers, the adaptors enable CIPP operators to cover all 18 straight, 45- and 90-degree nozzle configurations to invert liners 2 to 8 inches in diameter with just two adaptors, using six nozzles they may already have.
"These new cam-locking adaptors can greatly reduce the number of attachments CIPP operators need to have on hand," Gabrielse noted. "They're another great example of HammerHead listening to the needs of our customers and responding with solutions."
You can see both sizes of QuickLok inversion drums and the new cam-locking nozzle adaptors at the company's WWETT show booth #5206. These products are also available from HammerHead Trenchless Equipment or from authorized dealers.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
