Catch Basin Cleaners

Hi-Vac Aquatech B10-1450

The Aquatech B10-1450 combination jet/vac system from Hi-Vac has an operator-focused design that makes for a safe and quiet work area. The rear-mounted hose reel keeps the operator off the street, out of traffic and away from blower noise while providing ample power. In addition, the top-loading boom and one-piece vacuum hose provide unlimited 360-degree operation. This flexibility means safe, easy placement of the unit regardless of the manhole or excavation location. Its triplex 150 gpm pump maintains a robust flow rate, and the integration of a high-performance 27-inch Hg blower results in efficient vacuum loading. 800-752-2400; www.aquatechinc.com

I&I Detection/Prevention

Avanti International AV-100

AV-100 chemical grout from Avanti International is used to rehabilitate storm and sanitary sewer systems by eliminating infiltration in manholes, mainlines, joints, laterals and lateral connections, and before or after various forms of CIPP lining. It is injected after lining seals in the annular space between host pipe and liner, and lateral reinstatement, which are the primary sources of infiltration. It is an ultralow viscosity, chemically reactive gel with a similar viscosity to water. It can permeate anywhere water can travel and has adjustable cure times from seconds to hours, creating an effective, long-lasting water barrier while providing soil stabilization. 800-877-2570; www.avantigrout.com


CCI Piping Systems WrapidSeal Manhole Encapsulation System

The WrapidSeal Manhole Encapsulation System from CCI Piping Systems consists of an engineered primer and a wrap-around, heat-shrinkable sleeve designed to seal joints and prevent groundwater from entering a collections system. This material has a high-shrink membrane (70% stretch and 40% recovery) designed to shrink around any manhole profile. In addition, the high-tensile strength accommodates structural movement, while the tough backing resists soil stress and provides suitable abrasion resistance. It can be used for new construction or for the rehabilitation of existing manholes to control infiltration through joints and prevent deterioration, thus eliminating costly maintenance repairs and the added expense of treating groundwater. 800-867-2772; www.wrapidseal.com


Cretex Specialty Products Internal Chimney Seal

Cretex Specialty Products Internal Chimney Seals are mechanical, so there is no need to worry about surface adhesion or stopping active leaks prior to installation. The seals eliminate and prevent manhole chimney inflow. During wet weather, clear water enters the manhole through deteriorated and broken chimney joints, which may burden the collections system. The chimney seal has a 50-year design life and is available in four widths, allowing complete chimney coverage up to 24 vertical inches with a single seal. 800-345-3764; www.cretexseals.com


CUES LAMP II

The CUES LAMP II (Lateral and Mainline Probe II) can assist in locating buried assets and help prevent potential cross-bore risks. It is an inspection tool for identifying infiltration and inflow, potential cross bores, pipe defects and structural conditions in lateral services and mainlines. When used with the optional Mini Pan & Tilt Cameras, it can inspect lateral services and traverse multiple bends and wyes when deployed with or against the flow. Mainline inspection is accomplished with a pan, tilt and 40-1 zoom camera. It can pull 1,000 feet of video cable, reducing traffic control expenses while increasing production, and launch 150 feet or more into the lateral. The package includes a detachable steering wand, self-leveling camera head, built-in lens wiper, 360-degrees pan and tilt, four banks of LEDs with variable light intensity, and a built in sonde with switchable frequencies. 800-327-7791; www.cuesinc.com

There is no water loss from leaks and it requires no maintenance. 888-369-8721; www.enz.com


Hach Flow Advanced Data Report 

Hach Flow’s Advanced Data Report augments the data provided through the Data Delivery Services program. DDS bundles flow and rain monitoring equipment, service and support, and data at a fixed, monthly cost, easing the burden of short and long-term flow monitoring projects. The report can be tailored by application, such as for wet weather impacts, high level/surcharge monitoring, capacity and more. A report with a wet weather focus provides a cleaned, model-ready dataset as well as a polished, detailed report including wet and dry weather analysis, hyetograph and hydrograph analysis, flow balancing between locations and peak flows. Armed with a wet weather focused advanced report, which can easily be shared with other stakeholders, collection system managers can glean insights about their stormwater and collection system health, better pinpoint surface water issues arising from rain events, and make informed decisions. 800-220-2279; www.hach.com/flow


Pipeline Renewal Technologies Quick-Lock

Quick-Lock sleeves from Pipeline Renewal Technologies target failing pipes where vulnerable and seal out groundwater. They install in minutes with minimal manpower and no resin. Positioned by a crawler (or a pushrod in lines as small as 4 inches), and expanded pneumatically with an air-compressor, the sleeves provide structural, trenchless pipe repair to resolve problems such as infiltration, longitudinal cracks, separated joints and abandoned laterals. The sleeve has a locking system that once expanded ensures it stays permanently in position. It has its own static capability and absorbs the natural tectonic movements of the pipes. An EPDM rubber gasket provides infiltration abatement. Both sleeve and gasket are chemically resistant against sewage, thinned acids, lye and aromatic and chlorinated hydrocarbons. Multiple sleeves may be interleaved to perform long repairs. The sleeves minimize diameter loss, and are available in diameters ranging 4 to 72 inches. 866-936-8476;  www.pipelinert.com

Xylem Vue

Utilities often lack real-time data and visualization around how their sewer system is performing, which makes it difficult to confidently make decisions regarding unexpected overflows. Xylem Vue powered by GoAigua’s SSO/CSO Prediction application, complimented by data from sensors, river/tide levels and rainfall forecast, helps utilities understand the current network state so they can visualize and predict future impact of wet weather events on network performance. Tools like SSO/CSO Prediction provide customizable displays identifying operational needs that integrate multiple data sources into a single platform. It also utilizes hydroinformatics insights to simulate water flows and related processes across the sewer system. Utilities get valuable insights to network hydraulic performance in real-time while understanding the current and potential risks of flooding and overflows, giving them increased confidence to make operational decisions. 855-995-4261; www.xylem.com
