Duke’s Root Control Service helps control sewer line root problems. Over 2,000 municipalities have used the service in more than 70 million feet of sewer pipe. The company applies EPA registered products that kill tree roots without harming above ground vegetation. The material is injected as a foam, from manhole-to-manhole, killing all roots on contact and also inhibiting re-growth for three to five years.

Coating system

Click here to enlarge image

A.W. Chesterton has developed a coating system using two advanced composite technologies: ARC 791 Polymer Quartz Composite and ARC S1HB Reinforced Composite. ARC 791 is an all purpose quartz-reinforced composite for most concrete repairs and chemical containment. It is generally used to repair and upgrade concrete surfaces or used as a replacement for acid resistant tiles, epoxy mortars, fiberglass, and other overlayments. ARC S1HB is a composite lining formulated to protect concrete surfaces from corrosion and chemical attack. It allows for uniform coverage over rough surfaces and yields excellent barrier properties for long-term corrosion and chemical resistance in immersion exposures. The 100% solids, seamless protection system can be used to protect wet wells, junction boxes, manholes and pipes that suffer from the effects of H2S corrosion and abrasion and damaging impacts from objects which access these systems.
