Information on American Highway Products’ rubber adjusting ring for manholes is available on the company’s website. The ring, made from recycled tires, is installed under the utility casting on new construction or rehab of existing utilities. It replaces pre-cast concrete donuts or brick and mortar material. The ring is light weight, will not break and is not affected by freeze-thaw cycles. Because it is made of solid rubber, it performs like a weight bearing pad on a bridge, eliminating vibration from traffic which deteriorates the cement substructure of the utility.

The Model 570 Duplex Pipeline Basket Strainer from Eaton continuously protects system components in pipelines from 8" to 36" in size. The strainer removes particulate matter from the system flow to protect valves, pumps, meters, and other expensive equipment from damage. The strainer has been designed so that system flow never has to be shut down for basket cleaning. The strainer’s hand wheel operates a sliding gate that permits the flow to be switched between either of two straining chambers in order to permit one chamber to remain on-line, while baskets are removed from the out-of-service chamber for cleaning.
