TerraBrute® CR Restrained Joint PVC Pipe (CIOD)

Engineered for Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) and other trenchless applications.

  • Designed for total compatibility with your municipal system
  • TerraBrute CR requires no expensive equipment or special installer training
  • The highest pull strength safety factors in the industry for HDD applications

Developed in consultation with leading trenchless technology research experts, and rigorously tested in the field, TerraBrute CR trenchless PVC pressure pipe easily withstands the high tensile and bending forces that occur during HDD and other types of trenchless installation.

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 120,000 lbs. for 300mm / 12” pipe. Unlike competing square-shoulder designs, TerraBrute CR’s rounded bell shoulders slide by roots, rocks and other debris that can protrude into the borehole. And unlike HDPE, TerraBrute CR requires no relaxation time before installation of fittings or services.

PVC pipe used for horizontal directional drilling (HDD) or other trenchless installation methods shall be manufactured with a cast iron outside diameter (CIOD) and shall be made with starting stock certified to CSA B137.3 for 100mm - 300mm (4" - 12") diameters. Pipe will meet the requirements of AWWA C900, must be Factory Mutual approved, and listed by ULC and ULI.



The maximum allowable pulling force shall be the ultimate tensile capacity of the piping system divided by a safety factor of 2:1.



PVC pipe must be manufactured with an integral bell, and must have removable gaskets to allow the use of oil-resistant (nitrile) gaskets in contaminated soils.


A Wise Choice Made 30 Years Ago

In the early 1980s, decision makers in charge of the City of Vaudreuil-Dorion infrastructures had a sense of vision and made a responsible choice for the lasting benefit of the tax payers. A vision that would ensure durable infrastructures for over 30 years. The technical services, in cooperation with the public works department, decided a major shift for products to be used in potable water distribution applications. Since then PVC has become ``The Material of Choice`` made by the City to meet the overall needs, taking into account the existing soil conditions throughout the territory.
