The next-generation foam for efficient pipelining

The TekTrench System from Minova is the first self-expanding foam specifically designed for the pipeline industry. TekTrench is a structural foam used in the application of pillows and breakers for all trenching projects.

Applied outside the trench, TekTrench is more efficient than placing sandbags. Unlike polyurethane foams, the TekTrench system reacts at a much lower temperature. The lower temperature reduces environmental risks associated with excessively high temperatures leading to self-ignition.

The lower temperature of TekTrench will not degrade the quality or effectiveness of the pipes outer coating.

With consistent expansion ratios, TekTrench significantly reduces overall project material consumption and transport costs. It also supports cathodic protection, further extending pipeline life expectancy.

Let TekTrench get you out of the trench.

Oil & Gas

The latest technology for constructing pipeline breakers and pillows.

Advantages for pipeline owners

  • Faster and safer than traditional sandbags
  • Cathodic protection and lower exothermic temperature
  • Lower Total Ownership costs

Advantages for construction company owners

  • Safer and more efficient installations
  • Simplified logistics, 1/10 of transport needed
  • Cathodic protection and lower exothermic temperature

The smarter way to create O&G pipeline breakers and pillows

TekTrench is the new generation self-expanding foam, supporting O&G pipelines with cathodic protection and lower exothermic temperature.

“TekTrench speeds up the process and delivers long-term economy”

The TekTrench System is a pumpable two-component, self-foaming silicate resin. It is used to construct breakers and pillows for oil and gas pipeline constructions.
