Having the same viscosity as water, it permeates anywhere water can travel and cures within a controllable time frame from 5 seconds to 14 hours. Once cured, it creates an effective, long-lasting water barrier while providing soil stabilization. It is used to stop water infiltration in manholes, sanitary and storm sewer mainlines, joints, laterals and underground structures by stabilizing external substrate. It can also be used in tunnels and mines to control groundwater. 800/877-2570; www.avantigrout.com; Booth #5218.
The Sigmafire Steam Generator from Clayton Industries is a lightweight, compact steam boiler designed to respond rapidly to sudden load demands. It will provide full steam output from a cold start within five minutes, cutting cure times by as much as 50 to 150 percent. Hot-water curing causes the entire water supply to be styrene contaminated. Steam reduces that to a simple condensate collection (5 to 55 gallons). Test samples show that liners cure more effectively, as the cross linking during the cure is superior due to higher heat. 630/855-5482; www.claytonindustries.com; Booth #4643.
High-performance trenchless pipeline rehabilitation liners from DynaLiner LLC are manufactured with specially formulated PVC and PVC copolymers developed to maximize performance.

TRY TEK Machine Works Inc.
The Controlled Water Pressure (CWP) Inversion Unit from TRY TEK Machine Works Inc. installs 6- to 18-inch CIPP liner manhole to manhole. With water’s superior heat retention, groundwater infiltration into host pipe is less likely to prematurely cool liner causing incomplete curing and lifts. Incompressible water reacts instantly when unit is jogged, resulting in easier navigation of bends and irregularities. The liner remains constantly inflated from inversion through curing, eliminating host-pipe damage caused by multiple inflations. It can operate in places not accessible to high scaffolds or lift trucks. 717/428-1477; www.trytek.com; Booth #1222.
Manhole Parts, Components
Containment Solutions Inc.
Flowtite watertight fiberglass water storage tanks from Containment Solutions Inc. allow a water storage system to be watertight between the access collar and the access riser. A watertight enclosure protecting an access opening is the only way to eliminate infiltration and exfiltration contamination, as the access opening is the most vulnerable entry point for contaminants into any water storage system. The system deserves to be watertight, not simply water resistant, and a tank with watertight access collars is an effective way to protect an investment. 877/274-8265; www.containmentsolutions.com; Booth #2460.

The company offers rehabilitation as a service with its own crews, or can provide the forming system to be used by others. On-site training is available. 763/428-6488; www.infratechonline.com; Booth #6322.
Perma-Liner Industries LLC
The complete manhole lining system from Perma-Liner Industries LLC is engineered by the use of a flexible universal-fit liner to create a structural cured-in-place seal. Vacuum powered, resin-impregnated liner is inverted manually into the manhole, and uses an inflation device to press the liner against existing manhole walls. This contact allows for the liner to form to the shape of the manhole. During this process excess resin migrates into imperfections, where the liner is sealed and mechanically held in place. Depending on the depth of the manhole, cure times will occur within one to two hours ambient. Once cured, the result is a smooth interior surface that prevents inflow. 866/336-2568; www.perma-liner.com; Booth #3223.
