Video translation: It is very important to understand that the majority of our grouts are designed specifically to eliminate leaks, but at the same time, it's important to note that we have grouts for soil stabilization and slab lifting as well.

Chemical Grouting is for Life-Long Learners

Chris Hamilton - September 11, 2014 - Views 2626

Since becoming part of the Avanti family, I have met with dozens of grouting contractors and municipal crews with years of experience rehabbing underground structures. Most feel confident in their quality of work, and with balancing efficiency, effectiveness, and safety. As someone who served as an infrastructure restoration contractor for a decade, I know from personal experience how difficult it is to make procedure adjustments, modify processes, and implement subtle improvements.

The original trenchless technology, chemical grout, is also complimentary to all other technologies. What do we mean be that? CIPP lining and protective coating are important technologies to sustaining our underground infrastructure. To realize maximum value of these structural repairs, active leaks must be stopped first. View this 3-minute, Cole Publishing interview with Don Rigby on how chemical grout stops leaks and provides an infiltration-free environment in manholes, mainlines, and laterals so structural repairs can realize their full life-expectancy.

Direct from Municipal Contractor: Manhole Rehab with AV-100 Outsmarts Water Intrusion

- August 28, 2014 - Views 3132

Customer call backs can be painful. And for one contracting company in Florida their call-backs were just that. It started seven years ago when they chose to align themselves with Brand X (who shall remain nameless) because of a lower price point. After high volumes of call-backs, they moved to Brand Y and then Brand Z, but continued to have unacceptable call-backs. Let’s be real – the manhole rehab business is tricky. In fact, the contractor had to call upon a competing resource to fix problems, and sure enough, this contractor was aligned with Brand A – A for Avanti.

Anyone who has spent time in the military understands and accepts you may have to give your life at some point. No one should be ready or need to give their life rehabilitating a sewer. Sadly and unintentionally, this is what happened here.

"Briceno…had removed his harness to reach a confined space and was carried away by the rushing water, according to police officials at the scene. The other worker was strapped into his harness and was pulled to safety,” the officials said.

Ultrafine Cement Grout Excels at Colorado School of Mines Field Day

It happens only once a year. Colorado School of Mines (Golden, CO) hosts a week long short-course on grouting. It’s attended by Who’s Who in the geotechnical grouting industry.

On the afternoon of June 19, 2013, the school hosted a Field Day and participants were able to view a live demonstration of the permeability of different grouts through Sand Column Testing. I’m pleased to announce, US Grout’s Ultrafine Cement excelled over other cement grouts by reaching the top of the sand column (60 inches) in just 80 seconds. No other cement grout came close.

Preserving the Underground Infrastructure at Miami-Dade

Communities large and small face a delicate balance of improving their underground sanitary sewer collection system and reducing flow to their treatment plant while being good stewards of the rate-payer and protecting quality of life. The intrusion of groundwater and soil files are sabotaging system efficiencies causing the plant to treat twice the volume, increasing sanitary sewer overflows, and polluting our clean water systems.
