With about 5 million feet of Fusible PVC™ pipe installed, fused PVC pipe is one of the fastest growing infrastructure technologies in North America. Available in nominal diameters from 4" to 36", the pipe provides both trenchless and open-cut projects with economical solutions. The benefits of having no mechanical couplings or bells, and possessing a thinner wall for given pressure class versus other thermoplastic pipes, ensures that it maximizes flow and reconnects easily to ductile iron or bell & spigot lines.

Agru America has introduced SureFIT®, a close fit liner that is specially designed for rehabilitating damaged pipelines with minimal impact to the environment. Its applications include sewage disposal and industrial piping networks as well as natural gas and potable water supply systems. Only steam and pressure are used during the installation process, and the liner made of PE 100 is ecologically friendly in production as well as application. The liner offers a tight bending radii and can be inserted via existing manholes or small construction pits. When heated up by steam, it regains its original round shape and adjusts to the wall of the existing pipe, reducing internal stresses and increasing resistance to crack initiation.

A new version of SewerGard™, Sauereisen's 210X, exhibits compressive strength exceeding 15,000 psi. Wherever extreme corrosive conditions exist, the coating is used as a stand-alone high strength lining that enables high build capabilities. Manholes subjected to heavy stress represent a typical area where the coating would be used. It is also intended for preserving the concrete and steel infrastructure of wastewater treatment plants. In either area, the environmentally friendly nature of the product (100% solids, zero VOCs) offers additional benefit.
The PowerGrit Utility Saw Chain from ICS/Blount is designed to cut through pipe ranging from ductile iron to plastic using a chainsaw. The chain features a brazed layer diamond coating on a patent pending chain design. Using a chain saw to cut pipe provides dramatically improved access to the cut with far less excavation. The ability to cut all the way through the pipe from one side reduces the difficulty of cutting pipe in the trench.

Reed now offers Blade Guides for the Saw It® pneumatic saw. Offered in both 21" and 30" lengths, the guides reach across the pipe section being cut and stabilize the blade so that it does not whip and vibrate. This extends the blade life, squares the cut and helps eliminate accidental blade breakage. Blade guides are sized to match blade length. Reed's Saw It® pneumatic saw provides power and reciprocating motion to blades for cutting plastic, steel, and stainless steel pipe.

InfoSense recently received the Innovative Technology Award from WEF for its Sewer Line Rapid Assessment Tool (SL-RAT™), a condition assessment tool for collection system crews that provides quick diagnostics of a sewer pipeline segment without the time and expense of a closed-circuit television (CCTV) inspection. The system consists of a mobile transmitter and a receiver, which are dropped down a manhole at opposite ends of a sewer line hundreds of feet apart. A low frequency sonic wave travels down the pipeline, and the resulting acoustic wave pattern is interpreted by computer formulas to indicate the likelihood that the line is fully open or blocked.
PolyPipe® has introduced LightView™ Plus HDPE pipe for forced main applications. Its specially formulated gray color allows inspection of the pipe interior via CCTV monitoring. The pipe is flexible enough to bend around obstacles and under roads, and is well suited for both open-cut and HDD installations. It is manufactured with high performance polyethylene resin, provides superior fatigue resistance, is resistant to corrosion, abrasion, and chemical attack, and suffers no damaging effects from freeze-thaw cycles.
Pipe restraint products
The two newest products from EBAA Iron are the Mega-Stop PVC Bell Protection System and Series 1900 PVC Restraint Systems. The bell protection device facilitates proper assembly of PVC pipe joints. It reduces damaging stresses in pipe joints caused by over-insertion, and incorporates an ERS to allow for pipe expansion and contraction. The PVC restraint systems are engineered to accommodate the increased pressure ratings for C900 and C909 PVC pipe.

Pipe inspection software
Envirosight's new Rovver Measurement Suite (RMS) image-analysis software for the Rovver X pipe inspection crawler allows an operator to measure a variety of pipe attributes directly from the system's touch-screen control pendant. Using adjustable overlays, the software calculates flow level; pipe diameter, bend and offset; and the branch angle, clock position and diameter of service connections. All measurements can be stored in the system's onboard WinCan-based inspection reporting database. Measurements can also be offloaded seamlessly to WinCan V8 software, the 3D module of which can use the data to build a virtual model of the inspected assets.
