RELINER/Duran Modular Manhole Invert Channel System

RELINER/Duran Modular Manhole Invert Channel Systems use molded fiberglass flumes with smooth sewer pipe interfaces to rehabilitate inverts without flow interruption. The field-installed modular components bolt together inside the manhole and serve as the form for a new concrete bench. They eliminate the inconsistencies associated with field-formed concrete channels. The full-depth lined channels are high-flow and easy to clean and maintain. Standard 8- and 12-inch-depth channel sections fit through a 24-inch manhole frame and will accommodate 6- through 12-inch pipes. Larger sizes are available. Parts are selected based on the unique configuration of each manhole.

Excavating Equipment

Ditch Witch RT80 trencher

The RT80 trencher from Ditch Witch offers a narrower footprint and a modular design to fit and function in small, urban environments. The narrower, more modular design is ideal for heavy-duty trenching, vibratory plowing and microtrenching in confined urban and residential areas where larger machines cannot maneuver as freely. With the typical residential street lane having a width of 11 feet, the RT80’s footprint of just over 6 1/2 feet gives operators plenty of room to work without disrupting the surrounding area. The trencher is powered by a 74.5 hp DEUTZ Tier 4 diesel engine. It delivers a static load rating of 35,407 pounds and a wide-axle rating of 39,000 pounds.

Horizontal Directional Drilling

Akkerman 1525B/D

The 1525B/D hydraulically driven high-pressure pump from Akkerman is used for effective pilot tube and other pipe jacking operations particularly on larger-diameter bores. The large, 525-gallon tank offers in-tank agitation for continuous mixing, independent agitation, or agitate and pump to maintain optimal mud viscosity. It displaces a Marsh Funnel viscosity as high as 50 seconds with pump flow up to 10 gpm at 2,500 psi. It is powered by a 20.7 hp diesel engine with an 8-gallon fuel tank. Like its 325-gallon counterparts, it is simple, safe and reliable. There are few moving parts, no belts and a shrouded agitator. The stepped platform makes it easy for operators to access and fill the tank.

Pipeline Renewal Technologies SpeedyLight+

SpeedyLight+ from Pipeline Renewal Technologies is an LED-based UV solution for CIPP that cures at speeds ranging from 0.66 to 3.3 feet per minute. Because it’s compatible with felt (as well as invertible glass fiber), it can cure 90-degree bends in lines as small as 4 inches, as well as other challenging geometries like transitions and verticals. Free of styrene and amines (and the associated odor), UV-based cure technologies raise fewer objections from the public and a crew. The single-part vinyl ester resin requires no mixing and eliminates shelf life and working time challenges. It uses LED lamps to cure, drawing half the power of traditional UV technology while providing a more powerful cure. The integrated camera lets operators monitor the curing process in real time for optimal quality control. The highly portable design allows for access from even the most remote sites, curing up to 328 feet of liner in pipe 4 to 12 inches.
