Explore the cutting-edge advancements in lift stations and manholes as we delve into innovative solutions that offer enhanced efficiency, customization and safety. Read below about how these technologies revolutionize traditional fabric structures, manhole conveyance, substrate repair and underground pump stations, providing improved functionality, durability and ease of use for operators in the field.

Legacy Building Solutions Tension Fabric Buildings

Combining rigid-frame engineering with the proven benefits of tension fabric membranes, Legacy Building Solutions offers fabric structures that are fully customizable. They utilize a durable rigid frame in place of the hollow-tube, open web truss “hoop” framing traditionally used for fabric structures. The strength of the structural steel frame provides several engineering advantages, most notably the ability to easily customize buildings to the exact width, length and height required. In addition to long clear spans, the buildings have straight sidewalls that maximize the usable square footage inside the structure. The design allows for much more structural flexibility than traditional fabric structures, including the ability to add lean-tos, mezzanines, sidewall doors and more. The structures are also engineered to provide desired overhangs or handle additional loads for items such as sprinklers and conveyors. 877-259-1528; www.legacybuildingsolutions.com

RELINER/Duran conveyance products

RELINER/Duran provides a full range of products specifically developed to provide efficient, controlled conveyance of flow through manholes. Inside Drop Bowls capture inflow and convey it directly to the invert channel though the drop pipe. They are available with outlets ranging from 4 to 24 inches and are available to fit most round and flat-walled structures. Force line hoods are available for high velocity inlets. Stainless pipe support brackets securely fasten drop pipes or any other pipes to structure walls. Available in type 304 or type 316 stainless, they are noncorrosive and adjustable to align the drop pipe properly to the Drop Bowl. Modular manhole invert channels are made from marine-grade fiberglass, providing a consistent cross-sectional area with very high-flow capacity for the most efficient conveyance through the manhole. 800-508-6001www.reliner.com

Sauereisen RestoKrete No. 208

RestoKrete No. 208 epoxy modified cement mortar from Sauereisen is a substrate repair material and water-resistant barrier for the prevention of inflow and infiltration in concrete or brick substrates including pump stations and manholes. It is designed to fill voids, irregularities and air pockets in concrete. It is pumpable and sprayable, is easily applied by spin-cast or straight shot method, is trowel-able up to 1/2-inch thickness, is moisture tolerant and is compatible with all SewerGard and ConoFlex systems. When mixed at the proper ratio of powder, liquid and hardener, a regular unit will yield 449 cubic inches per unit at 1/8-inch thickness. 

Smith & Loveless CAPSULAR Underground Pump Station

The CAPSULAR Underground Pump Station from Smith & Loveless provides an operator-friendly and economical solution for large-flow pumping up to 20,000 gpm. With a Safe-Stair entryway module and integrated HVAC, the pump station design meets the OSHA definition of “designed for continuous human occupancy” and therefore does not require classification as confined space entry. It comes with simplified, yet powerful QUICKSMART touchscreen controls and a spacious interior offering a variety of user options including shelving, work desks, sinks and storage. The station is pre-engineered and fabricated, allowing for simple installation and future flow capacity increases via adaptation of additional pumps or larger rotating assemblies. 800-898-9122www.smithandloveless.com
