Split Casings - Existing Pipe Protection
Encasement - Existing Pipes - Conduit - Fiber Cables - Power Cables

Pipeline protection for existing pipes under new railway extensions and roadway enlargement.



Split casing Bolt Closed WA-HEX protection

Hexagonal split casings provide high compression strength encasement protection for existing pipelines. WA-HEX encasement split sections are manufactured forms - not split pipe. Encasement protection for all American and International pipe sizes.


Non-metallic or metallic casing spacers (positioners) hold the carrier pipe suspended in the casing. Isolation between the carrier pipe and casing.

Reinforcement flanges add extra strength to the Hexagonal encasement sleeves.

Materials: Galvanized - Corrosion protected steel - Stainless 304L/316L.

If required gaskets between flange connections add an extra bolt closing feature.

Encasement protection for pipes, conduit, power cables and fiber-optic lines. Pipelines remain in service during the install process.

Split casing for welded closing of the encasement

WA-HEX SC Weld closing with integrated pipe saddles, provide high strength protection for existing pipelines. Axial and butt socket joints are welded closed on site.



Split casing for large pipe sectional bolted closings WA-HEX-SCBC - Sectional

Bolt closed multi sectional split casing for large pipe protection.


Split casing for existing larger pipelines; may have three or more separate sections.

Bolt joining end flanges align end to end for all run lengths. Installation is accomplished with the pipeline in service, shutdown is not required.

Split casings Hex models fit all American and International pipe sizes.


Large pipe Hex split casing come with casing spacers steel or non-metallic - that hold the carrier pipe suspended in the split casing.

Hex-split casing may be installed by contractors, specialized equipment is not required.

Split Casing Applications:

- Tank farm protection for existing gas and oil pipes through earth containment berms or bund walls.

- Protection for existing pipelines under rail tracks, roads and other crossover projects.

- Extra protect for existing pipelines under new building foot prints.

- Protect communication cables and power supply cables.

- Provide utility corridors for service entries.

Rib former collars on the split casing provide stability, and strength. Split Casing ends may be closed or open.

Sizing: from 5 inch - 48 inch standard (125mm to 1200mm) larger split casing available on request.

Split casing Material: galvanized steel, corrosion coated steel, 304L or 316L stainless steel.

Flange Gaskets: EDPM for water applications or NBR elastomer for oil and gas applications.

Casing Spacer "positioners" support the pipe in the casing.

WA-Hex (Hexagonal split casing) ships ready to install with all necessary material.



Only expose an existing carrier pipe so that non-excavated earth supports the pipe. Place split casing lengths under that section before moving on.

Basic structures may be modified to accommodate existing field conditions.

Split casing for existing pipeline protection.





Bolt closed split casings encapsulate existing carrier pipelines. Westatlantic split casings are formed sections - not split pipes.

Split casings protect pipes, power cables and fiber optic lines in under ground or under sea placement applications. Two half sections wrap around the pipe and bolt together to form total encasement.

If requested, gaskets may be supplied to fit between the axial and butt end flanges. Casing spaces (POSITIONERS) hold the carrier pipes off the bottom of the casing. End seals are supplied with the assembly if required.

Bolted end joining flanges add strength and stability to the sections. Special casing end connectors or flange ends may form part of the assembly depending on requirements.

Section lengths greater than 5ft. have a mid point stabilization flange.


Guide to Installing split casings.

- Expose existing carrier pipe by excavating down to the pipe bed on both sides.
- Under bedding should be left undisturbed until ready to install a casing spacer around the pipe.
- Remove a portion of under bedding to provide an opening to wrap and tighten a casing spacer.
- Place a bottom half split casing section under the casing spacers and around the pipe.
- Several bottom half sections may be placed and bolted together.
- For temporary support of the split casing, sand bags may be used.
- Check with the engineer on carrier pipe support spacing.
- Place the top split section over the bottom half and bolt the sections together.
- Grout fill any gap in the original bedding to the underside of the split casing.
- Concrete support may extend to about half way up the bottom half split.

- Note** the idea here is the new grout bedding will support the split casing, casing spacers support the carrier pipe.

- Place the bottom lengths first before top sections.
- Field conditions may require a different placement sequence.
- Exposed carrier pipe should always be supported by undisturbed bedding or other means.

Split Casing for existing pipeline - Weld closing - Round encasement



Weld closing split casing for existing pipelines.

Standard lengths 6ft. - 8ft, shorter lengths are available.

Larger diameter pipe encasement may be less than 6ft., Large pipe protection may require more than one section piece for total diameter surround.

Bevel edges axial joints.


Steel casing spacers with steel rollers hold the carrier pipe off the bottom of the split casing.

Existing pipelines remain in service during placement of the split casing.

Placement of Split casings

Weld the bottom lengths in place first for several lengths, followed by the top sections. Field conditions may require a different sequence and is a contractor choice.

Normally only expose an existing carrier pipe length so that non-excavated earth supports the pipe. Place split casing lengths under that section length before moving on. Field contractors may modify method of exposing existing carrier pipes to meet other requirements.





See Non-Metallic casing spacers for bolted split casings.

Split Casing Applications:

Gas Line Industry, Telecommunication Industry, Reusable Cement Forms, Column Covers, Airport Runways, Bridge Construction, Road Construction, Railroad Construction.

End Sealing-Split Casing

Casing End Seals - Casing pipe not centered


WA-GP-UM eccentric seals:

Do not require the carrier pipe to be centered in the casing. Split models of WA-GP-UM eccentric end seals are available for existing pipes.

Carrier pipes below or above the center position may be sealed. Large annular spaces may be sealed by installing WA-GP- UM seals.


Eccentric pipe seals conform to the carrier pipes exist position. The opening in the GP-UM depends on the height of the casing spacer leg being used.

E.G. a pipe would be considered to be fully (100%) eccentric it were lying against the inside diameter of the wall sleeve or core hole. A pipe would be said to be concentric (0% eccentric) if it were perfectly centered in the outer pipe or hole.

WA.GP-UM eccentric disk-seals are used for non-centered pipe through the casing..

Oval casing pipe end seals - watertight



Carrier pipes or casings not round may be sealed with a WA-GP-OVAL end seal.

Out of round end seals are custom fabricated to fit the out of round pipe or casing condition.

Materials: EDPM or NBR elastomer with stainless steel compression plates and hardware.



Measures required for out of round pipe or casing pipe:



Download a measure fill-in sheet:

- Record measures from the carrier pipe OD to the casing Pipe ID - for each point in a 24 hour clock.

- Measures should be perpendicular to the carries pipe.

- Run a straight line from the 6 o'clock to 12 o'clock.
