Brochure: Costs of Chemical Grout: What Would You Spend?

Published Year: 2009

  • Are you spending thousands of dollars each year treating clean water? Recent studies and over 50 years of experience indicate that America's first trenchless technology is still the best, most cost-effective, long-term defense against infiltration.

Magazine Article: Acrylamide Grout Aces 20-Year Test

Published Year: 2008

  • Grouting has occasionally been thought of as a more temporary solution, a stop-gap. But recent testing of two 20-year old acrylamide grout rehab projects indicate that grout can certainly stand the test of time.

Long-Term Performance of Grouting Around a Flood Control Bulkhead in Shoals, Indiana

Published Year: 2006

  • The long-term performance of the end-product is more important. For this reason, we have re-visited an 18-year-old mine grouting project that took place to prevent the flooding of a gypsum mine in Shoals, Indiana.

White Paper: Two Dimensional Model Study on Infiltration Control at a Lateral Pipe Joint Using Acrylamide Grout

Published Year: 2005

  • In this study, A table top lateral joint model was used to investigate grout movement through soil, when sealing sewer pipe leaks at lateral joints by grouting.

Magazine Article: Joint Efforts - A Progressive Grouting Program in Plant City, Fla.

Published Year: 2004

  • An exemplary grouting program in Plant City in central Florida proves highly-cost effective in reducing inflow and infiltration

News: Working at Ground Zero

Published Year: 2002

  • As the recovery and rebuilding of New York City continues, new problems and challenges continue to present themselves at Ground Zero.

Magazine Article: Overpass Threatens Underground Pipes; Soil Stabilization Eases Concern

Published Year: 1999

  • Construction of a new overpass on I-55-70 in East St. Louis, IL required an innovative solution to a persistent groundwater problem

Ultrafine Cement Grout Seals Fissures in Salt Caverns

Published Year: 1999

  • The WIPP in New Mexico was created as an R&D facility to demonstrate safe, long-term disposal of radioactive wastes. However, before waste could be shipped to the plant, fissures in the underground salt cavern had to be sealed.

Case Study: AV-100 Chemical Grout Solves Leakage Problems in Tailings Dam for Large Copper/Gold Mine in Argentina

Published Year: 1998

  • This is a case study whereby acrylamide solution grout was used to achieve the “target residual permeability value” in the rock formation below a future tailings dam for a large copper/gold mine in Argentina.

Magazine Article: Using Grout to Lock Pollution in Place

Published Year: 1998

  • In Pennsylvania, Rembco used grouting to contain oil leaking under an oil refinery’s sea wall. The concrete wall had been constructed on top of old wharf piling. Over time, tidal action caused erosion, resulting in leakage at the wall’s base.

Case Study: Grouting Saves Effluent Pipeline and Maintains Plant Operations

Published Year: 1996

  • During a routine facility inspection at a major West Coast paper plant in Canada, a small leak appeared near the shoreline where an underground 42-inch fiberglass reinforced plastic pipe carried effluent to diffusers in the ocean.

Case Study: Cutting Water Flow in Colliery Drift

Published Year: 1960

  • Problem: In driving two drifts for this new project, several badly fissured water-bearing rock zones were intercepted. Upon completion, water at the rate of several thousand gallons per hour was entering the drifts from a subterranean water table.

Case Study: Controlling Seepage During Shaft Sinking

Published Year: 1960

  • In order to reach newly discovered lead deposits, St. Joseph Leak Company had to sink large diameter deep shafts through permeable Lamotte Sandstone carrying ground water at high pressures.

Case Study: Controlling Seepage During Construction of Underground Missile Bases

Published Year: 1960

  • Problem: With construction still in progress, numerous leaks appeared at the joints and bolt holes of corrugated steel-pipe tunnels connecting missile silos to control centers. Welding and sealing compounds failed to stop seepage.
