Reducing Corrosion, Costs and Extending the Life Cycle of a Pipe

FlowtiteTrenchless is the future of pipe installation and repair, and FRP is the new generation of material used to replace pipes put in the ground when baby boomers were in diapers.

Find out why more engineers are specifying FRP and how its reducing corrosion, costs and has a longer life cycle.

We'll show you recent case studies, and you'll learn how others have used FRP in trenchless applications. See what makes FLOWTITE unique, and get your questions answered in real time during our live Q&A.

Cured-in-Place-Pipe (CIPP)

Cured-in-Place-Pipe (CIPP) is a tried and true method for rehabilitating potable water, wastewater and gas pipelines. With no or limited excavation, engineered liners are inserted into host pipes creating a new pipe within an existing pipe. The liners are usually made from a polyester felt fabric and impregnated with polymer resin which is cured to fit tightly to the host pipe. Robotics are commonly used to clear laterals.

This webinar will focus on the following CIPP topics:

  • CIPP technologies
  • Industry standards
  • Cost value benefits

NASTT's complimentary webinar series is modeled to bring you professional instruction from leading experts in the field of trenchless technology. The content of all NASTT training is peer-reviewed, consensus-based information and free of commercialism. Designed to share the many benefits of trenchless technology, NASTT's complimentary webinar series welcomes industry newcomers and seasoned veterans alike.

Industry experts from the NASTT membership will be presenting this complimentary webinar: Chris Macey, AECOM and Kaleel Rahaim, Interplastic Corporation

Moderator: Derek Potvin, Robinson Consultants Inc.

Engineering Effective I&I Reduction: Stopping Leakage Using CIPP & Grouting

AvantiThe single biggest sewer challenge facing engineers and municipalities is I&I. Current practices are installed in ways that promote structural repair and do not effectively reduce infiltration or exfiltration. The two most pervasive methods for I&I reduction projects are grouting and lining. The expert panel will explore where, when and how to employ these technologies to effectively remove leakage for the long term.

ENGINEER'S DECISION MATRIX:

Assess when to grout and when to line
Cost-based decisions, life-cycle costs
When to use both CIPP and chemical grout

GAIN NEW INSIGHT AND TAKEAWAYS:

How to sustain the collection system
Grouting and Lining are complementary technologies
Techniques to seal annulus space between host pipe and liner
How to grout/how to line to achieve long lasting solutions

This Live Learning Event is hosted by James Rush, Editor of Trenchless Technology magazine and promises to be interactive and informative...a must attend for the trenchless community.

NASTT’s Carbon Calculator

In order to promote trenchless technology as a green alternative, NASTT collaborated with a consortium of North American gas and electric utilities to develop a Carbon Calculator. This calibrated comparison tool allows users to input real project data and compare outcomes between traditional open cut construction and trenchless applications. NASTT's Carbon Calculator is a complementary benefit for all NASTT members.

During this webinar you will learn:

  • The basic operations of NASTT's Carbon Calculator
  • How to input project details into the Calculator
  • How to get access to NASTT's Carbon Calculator after the webinar

Presenter: Hitesh Patadia, GasOps iQ

I & I Mitigation: Rehabilitation of Sewer Laterals and Sealing Their Connection to the Main

LMK Technologies, located in Ottawa, Illinois is recognized by municipalities and consulting engineers as a high quality innovator of trenchless renewal systems for sewer laterals, mainlines and manholes.  LMK has an extensive world-wide patent library relating to trenchless pipe renewal technologies.

Cities that are trying to reduce costs associated with excessive Infiltration/Inflow (I&I) are finding that rehabilitating manholes and city owned sewer pipes alone does not always produce the results they desire because the failing laterals remain an unmitigated source of clear water inflow. The focus of this webinar is on renewing lateral services using CIPP technology with special emphasis on restoring the connection of the lateral to the mainline sewer in accordance with the applicable ASTM standard (F2561).

Join Rick Gage, Vice president of Business Development, who will walk attendees through the history of lateral lining and its current place in today’s industry.  We will also discuss the following topics in regards to ASTM F2561:

  • Accessing the Lateral through an Outside Cleanout
  • Materials Used in Main-to-Lateral CIPP
  • Sealing the Annular Space between the Main and Host Pipe
  • Inserting, Inflating and Inverting the Liner
  • Curing and Final Inspection

Don't miss out on this educational opportunity for renewing and sealing the sewer system. Watch this Trenchless Technology webinar from the comfort of your own office. We hope to see you online this Wednesday!

Cartridge Style PVC Restrained Joints: Efficiency, Performance and Sustainability

The benefits of trenchless technology are well understood by all in our industry – more cost-effective, and less disruptive to streets, driveways, and landscaping. However, what’s less clear to many engineers and city officials faced with a wide selection of materials and processes is the impact material selection has on system performance, risk, installation requirements and the environment. This seminar will present the engineering considerations involved in selecting PVC pipe for water/sewer trenchless installation projects, focusing on “cartridge-style” assembly considerations, structural and flow performance, pressure-handling capacity, and compatibility with existing systems. Design and key decision criteria will also be presented to assist in defining what type of thermoplastic pipe is best suited for a particular trenchless application. There will be two case studies, one water distribution and one gravity sewer, to review the design, financial, installation, and operational considerations to meet owner/municipality requirements. We will discuss the three primary cartridge style joining methods: Restrained Joint Integral Bell, Coupled Pipe, and Flush Joint PVC pipe.

Sewer Laterals

Sewer Laterals are service pipes that connect buildings to sewer mainlines. Laterals convey sanitary sewage, but often extraneous storm water also. The November 7 webinar will focus on the following sewer lateral topics:

  • Methods, technologies and current practices for location and inspection of sewer laterals
  • Methods and case studies of lateral rehabilitation and renewal technologies
  • Examples of the existing lateral rehabilitation programs, results and lessons learned

Industry experts from the NASTT membership will be presenting this complimentary we binar on November 7:

Dr. Jason Lueke, Associated Engineering
Dr. Ray Sterling, Professor Emeritus, Louisiana Tech University

NASTT's complimentary webinar series is modeled to bring you professional instruction from leading experts in the field of trenchless technology.
