The centrifugal application of Mainstay® restoration mortars to horizontal pipes is made possible by the use of the Madewell® Horizontal Mortar Spinner & Precision Cable Puller. These machines provide a simple and efficient solution to lining horizontal pipes without the need of entry. The Madewell Horizontal Mortar Spinner & Precision Cable Puller centrifugally applies mortar to any thickness from 1/2” to 2”+ by controlling the retraction speed of the Mortar Spinner in relation to the pumping rate of the mortar.

Features & Benefits:

  • IMG 40891 1Provides a solution to lining horizontal pipes without the need of entry
  • Applies Mainstay mortars evenly at the intended thickness
  • Pulls heavy loads horizontally
  • Speed is precisely controlled (sometimes at speeds of only a few inches a minute for large diameter pipes and thick mortar linings).
  • Able to retract long lengths (as much as several hundred feet) of mortar hose along with the centrifugal mortar applicator
  • Spinner air motor is constantly moving back and forth up and down the pipe being lined for more uniform mortar application thickness.
  • Spinner sled is easily adjusted to any pipe diameter using four 1” diameter steel pipes. These are available prefabricated to any diameter pipe or can be fabricated in the field from pipe purchased from a hardware or building supply store.
