Pipelaying for sewerage, gas, water or other services involves a range of specialised equipment. At iSeekPlant, we offer an extensive range of pipeline equipment for hire anywhere you need it in Australia, including padders, vac-lifts and poly-welders. Throughout the many years we've been in business, we've seen loads of contracts for pipelaying services in Brisbane and elsewhere throughout SEQ, including the North-East Gas Connector. We've also helped with procurement on major pipelaying hire projects in Melbourne and wider Victoria.
Pipeline equipment hire in Perth differs from pipelaying in Sydney or other areas on the East Coast. Local conditions (and the nature of the job in question) play a large part in the methods used to lay pipe. A natural consequence of this divergence of pipelaying methods naturally means that companies who hire out gear for pipeline equipment do things differently too. Some companies will insist on wet hire only, as there is a definite skill to trenching and pipelaying. Others only deal in dry hire, and contract their pipelaying equipment to major firms who are fulfilling government contracts that often extend for over twelve months. In these situations, they usually have a stack of experience pipeline operators on board.
Padders are often needed to filter excavated material from a trencher, so that it can be screened for rocks and then used to protect newly laid pipe from temperature and pressure changes. When the larger rocks and particles are screened out, the remaining finer soil can compact more easily around the pipe. Without the use of these machines, pipeline projects can become incredibly labour intensive; padders can save not only time but also labour costs, making your project more streamlined and cost effective. A padder is basically a necessity on any pipelaying project that requires some time and effort - even down to smaller jobs such as running a pipe from the reservoir to the stock yards.
Other pipeline equipment available for hire at iSeekplant provide solutions for conforming poly pipe as required – including powerful pipe benders as well as poly welders to suit any scale project that needs to be completed. Welding platforms are available through our rental listings in a variety of sizes, depending on the exact requirements of your next pipelaying job. There is also a number of pipelaying and pipelifting attachments that can be added to machines - such as backhoes, excavators or skidsteers - but these can be found in the attachments section of each individual machine category. You simply run a search on iSeekplant, and refine that search down using the 'refine search' panel based on the pipelifting or pipelaying attachments listed in the attachments sections.
