Eliminating Infiltration in the Collection Systems Begins with Knowing How

CIPP Lining is brilliant technology designed to solve structural issues and optimized for mainline sewer pipe. Injection grouting is designed specifically to stop infiltration at all four points of entry—mainline, manholes, service laterals and connections. Starting today, engineers, municipalities, and specialty contractors can learn the Fundamentals of Municipal Grouting online, on their time and at no cost.

Win/Win—Stop the Leaks, Start a Career

Win/Win—Stop the Leaks, Start a Career

Avanti's field service was contacted to stop water leaking into a storm water system in Colorado and provide how-to training. The storm water system was less than three years old, but had multiple barrel joint leaks as well as leakage at the pipe penetrations into a vault. Every project is different – there is no ‘one grout fits all’ solution. So after careful consideration, AV-248-LV Flexseal LV, a low viscosity, flexible hydrophobic polyurethane grout was injected to seal the barrel joints.

Lunch & Learns: Sixty minutes to refuel the body and revitalize the mind is time well invested for anyone. Engineering firms often leverage this hour to broaden the knowledge of their most important assets, yet Avanti has held learning events for every type of contracting firm, small municipalities and large sewer districts, regulatory agencies, DOTs, utilities, and facility management organizations, as well as our dealer network and supply chain partners. No two presentations are exactly the same - each is custom built to the wants, needs and interests of the host organization. Avanti has presented hundreds of lunch & learns – and a few breakfast sessions - across the United States, with more being scheduled week

Today Begins the Next 50 Years of Municipal Grouting

Avanti Staff - August 19, 2016 - Views 1316

The first and original trenchless technology is chemical grouting. The practice continues to evolve, and today makes a compelling case for the most economical and reliable method for controlling infiltration by sealing sewer mainlines, laterals, and manholes in both sanitary and storm sewer systems. Like any technology, the caveat is clear—it must be executed with precision. Clearly we have more performance standards and operating guidelines today than at any moment in our 50 year history

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.

Preparation--Key Critical for Chemical Grout Repair Projects

Avanti Staff - February 25, 2013 - Views 3566

Planning for repair work is more than setting a date. Just like a good paint job is all about the preparation, so is chemical grouting. With work often in confined spaces, after hours, and sometimes requiring equipment shut down, it is vital to have everything ready to facilitate starting on time so you can finish as planned.

Act Responsibly. Think Safety First.

Avanti Staff - February 25, 2013 - Views 3331

The military may ask you to lay your life on the line at times. A number of us here at Avanti are prior military. But risking your life waterproofing in a confined space is just silly and avoidable. Did you know that in a low oxygen environment, people will act normally at first, but will then abruptly feel dizzy and black out in a matter of seconds?
