Zip Ties to Hold Pipe Bumpers on a Road Bore?
I've had an interesting week. There is a pipeline project going on out there that is using zip ties as the primary method of keeping pipe bumpers on the pipeline. In this particular case, two 12" pipelines are being dragged through the same bore hole at the same time. A bumper is needed there for a variety of reasons, but most importantly:
- To prevent pipe on pipe damage during the pull through
- To keep space between the pipelines to allow room for the cathodic protection system to do its job (pipe cannot be resting on pipe)
