The Missing Link in Your PVC Piping System

Engineered for Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) and other trenchless applications, TerraBrute® CR is a 100% non-metallic, AWWA C900 PVC pressure pipe system. Non-corroding and installation-friendly, TerraBrute® CR allows you to standardize on PVC throughout your potable water and sewer infrastructure.

Whether you’re using open-cut or trenchless methods, there are no more problems matching materials and couplings.

Product Details

Total PVC Piping System Engineered For HDD

  • TerraBrute® restrained joint PVC pipe delivers the superior strength and corrosion resistance you’ve come to expect from our Blue Brute pressure pipe, along with the ability to absorb the underground shear and flexure stresses that occur in buried applications
  • The new, non-metallic, “ring-and-pin” configuration of TerraBrute® CR PVC pressure pipe offers complete corrosion resistance. The plastic “ring” is designed as two half rings for ease of installation and comes complete with the “pins” ready for insertion creating a strong, locking joint
  • TerraBrute® CR trenchless PVC pipe is designed for total compatibility with your municipal system. Connections can be made with standard PVC CIOD fittings, direct tapped couplings or standard service saddles. Repair and handling techniques are the same as for any AWWA C900 PVC pressure pipe
  • Based on our gasketed bell and spigot design, proven through years of service in the field, the TerraBrute® CR joint is tested and pressure rated. And unlike competing coupling joints, the TerraBrute® CR joint has been specially engineered to deliver the highest pull strength safety factors in the industry for HDD applications

Highest Pull Strength Available

TerraBrute® CR’s non-metallic “ring-and-pin” gasketed joint design outperforms all other restrained PVC pipe joints on the market, providing more than twice the pull strength of other HDD systems – up to 390,000 lbs. for 600mm / 24” pipe.
