Annually this research focuses firstly on drinking water pipes mainly cast iron main diameters of 60-300 mm and occasionally 350 to 500 mm at operating pressures up to 25 bars for a total length of nearly 4 Km which must be added the recovery and renewal of individual connections around 100-120 connections in pellets per year (either open or replacement with burst pipes or lead extraction trench).
The tools needed for lead extraction usually involve a catheter-delivered sheath that fits around the lead and emits energy or a laser to remove scar tissue around the tip of the lead, making for an easier removal.
