PipePillo® is a high-performance structured pipeline pillow (SPP) designed to permanently support fully-loaded pipelines from the rocky trench bottom. It provides permanent support and is the only engineered solution replacing foam, sandbags and pad dirt.

Available for pipe diameters from 4″ to 48″ O.D.

Environment and Pipeline Friendly

PipePillos are manufactured from high strength polypropylene resins which are environmentally inert yet softer than pipeline coatings. In addition, PipePillo’s 90 degrees of support limit ovality and their many cavities support cathodic protection systems.

Designed for Strength

The design incorporates a patented dual frustoconical shape which is able to transfer extreme loads very effectively through to consolidated or virgin soil beneath.

Easy to Handle and Install

PipePillos are light enough to be manually handled, yet dense enough to resist flotation.

All PipePillos have a rectangular center hole, which accommodates an installation rod (2×4) for positioned placement without workers in the trench. For deeper excavations, PipePillos can be strapped to the bottom of the pipeline prior to the pipe installation.

Additional Uses

Stringing & Welding

PipePillos were designed for use both in and out of the trench.  Outside the trench, PipePillo® is well-suited for use stringing and welding as single or multi-stacked supports. PipePillos are lightweight and can be moved and stacked by a single worker.  Reuse PipePillo® on your next project or easily place in the trench for permanent pipeline support.

Integrity Digs

PipePillo® can be used as an effective means to support exposed pipelines during and following integrity digs. Achieve additional height by stacking multiple PipePillos, limiting the requirement for compacted soil beneath the pipe.

Pipe Inspection and Fabrication

PipePillos are excellent for use in the shop during pipe inspection and fabrication. Their versatile and adjustable stacking heights make them an indispensable piece of equipment, offering your pipe a stable resting place and a full 90 degrees of support.

Pipe Storage and Transportation

PipePillo® was engineered to safely hold up to 80,000 lbs and provide a full 90 degrees of support, making it an ideal solution for pipe storage and transportation. Help protect your pipe by limiting ovality, improving drainage, and lowering costs by having a PipeSak® engineer design your pipe storage solution using the versatile PipePillo® product.

Roadrunner Pipeline Project Phase 1 & 2

The Roadrunner Pipeline project was a project consisting of 2 phases totaling 200 miles in west Texas. Since this pipeline was being built in dry, rocky terrains, the owners were looking for something more reliable than traditional foam and safer than sand padding. After consulting with PipeSak engineers on their in-trench pipe support design, OneOK Partners obtained over 2,100 PipePillo engineered pipeline supports for their project. Since PipePillos can be installed by one man, outside of the trench with a 4 times safety factor, this made the choice to use PipePillo for this project simple one.
