Schwalm USA Robotic Solutions: Improve your productivity and expand your services – from robots, accessories, training, and service … to custom-built robotic truck and systems, Schwalm is so much more than a reinstatement cutter.

Initially developed for lateral reinstatement, the Schwalm robot has become known as the Swiss army knife of sewer robots due to its multi-function capabilities. First introduced in 1981, the Schwalm robot has only gotten better as its customers continue to find ways to get more out of it. Today, in addition to precision lateral reinstatement, Schwalm customers all over the world are using their Schwalm to grind, chisel, water blast through extreme debris and blockage, and even perform point repairs.

This webinar will go into detail about the rugged sewer robot’s versatility and how it has helped improve contractors’ productivity and reduce the need for specialty equipment to perform tasks that other robots cannot. Critical to this is the robot’s simple, yet innovative, design that allows it to quickly convert from a cutter to grinder, descaler, chisel, 40kpsi water jetter, even a point repair system. Schwalm is also known for its reliability and durability, and lower maintenance costs. All of this stems from its original design to be a workhorse and contractor’s friend.

The webinar will also cover the demand to a complete robotics system solution, it will adapt to existing CCTV tucks or can be custom built to your specs. We will also take you through a series of use cases where Schwalm has helped contractors overcome incredibly difficult conditions, thanks to its ability to be adapted in the field to address unknown conditions within the pipe.

Finally, we understand what truly sets the schwalm apart is the expertise and support behind it. Need training, a tune-up, a spare part, rental, or upgrade? It’s all here in the U.S. No reason to stop a project when replacement parts or specialty tools are practically in your back yard.

If you’re looking into investing in a sewer robotics system, this is a can’t miss webinar.

HammerHead Trenchless

A Systematic Approach to CIPP

Every jobsite is different and the more prepared you are – the more tools you have in your trenchless toolbox – will help you complete the job, on time and on budget.

Join HammerHead Trenchless to discuss the necessary items for each job and how the importance of a trenchless system; the equipment, the consumables, and the training to make your jobsite the most efficient. Discussing trenchless systems for lateral and mainline CIPP, point repair, and pipe bursting.

At the end, the HammerHead team will moderate a question-and-answer session where you can provide in field experiences and our team can advise on a trenchless solution.

Polymeric Coatings for Use in Water and Wastewater Infrastructure Rehabilitation and as a Preventative Maintenance Solution

Anyone who works in the water and wastewater industry, understands the need for protecting assets against the corrosive effects of H2S gas, and low pH environments.

Over the years protective coating have continued to improve now frequently called upon to rehabilitate deteriorated structures, and in many cases, protect newly constructed tanks, basins and other infrastructure exposed to this environment.

100% solid epoxies are particularly effective in providing extreme corrosion resistance and extending the life of aging infrastructure. While some epoxies are designed only for direct contact application, Vortex epoxies are formulated for both direct contact and used as a composite system with Vortex cementitious materials, when major restoration, rebuild, or structural integrity is called for.

This presentation will focus on the evolution of epoxies, for both water and wastewater applications, their versatility, performance attributes, and where they are being used with success. The presenter will also cover pre- and post-project best practices to ensure successful application, case studies involving unique and challenging projects, and the rigid third-party testing process required to ensure each product meets ASTM standards for performance.

Trenchless Installation Methods

Pipe bursting? Slip-lining? Butt fusion or electrofusion? There are as many trenchless installation methods for HDPE pipes as there are applications and sizes.

This webinar covers some of the most common trenchless installation methods for HDPE pipe. From fusion to installation, learn how to join and install one, monolithic HDPE piping system that’s right for your pipeline project.

Key insights include:

  • HDPE pipe fusion methods and equipment
  • When fusion isn’t an option…
  • Installation methods: open-cut and trenchless techniques
  • Real-world examples

CIPP Curing Monitoring System Technology: Improving Installation Quality and Verifying the Completeness of the CIPP Curing Process

The Cured-In-Place Pipe (CIPP) process is by far the most widely accepted and used form of pipe rehabilitation in the industry today. We have improvements in liner materials, resins and installation equipment, but what we have not seen is a way to accurately monitor the completeness and consistency of the cure itself. This makes CIPP installations vulnerable to failures.

Using a Curing Monitoring System (CMS), in conjunction with the CIPP installation process, eliminates the guesswork and installers no longer need to make assumptions about whether the liner is completely cured, based on their “gut”.  A CMS validates each liner is installed to spec and will perform as designed. Its ability to monitor the liner’s temperature profile helps achieve a consistent cure across the length of the host pipe.  Patented in the US in 2012, the VeriCure CMS is built around Fiber-Optic Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) technology. A validation report, with the localized temperature data, accompanies each completed cure.

Installers and project owners have discovered that by using CMS technology during the CIPP installation, they are able to improve the efficiency and quality of each cure and have shown a significant reduction in the risk of lifts, delamination and over-tensioning.

Trenchless Styrene-free PVC Expand-In-Place Liners for Rehabilitation of Sanitary and Stormwater Mains

With aging infrastructure a growing concern, trenchless options for the rehabilitation of existing sanitary and storm sewer mains can be a great way to economize versus excavation and replacement. Trenchless rehab for storm and sanitary mains has grown significantly over the last 20-30 years. Together with growing concerns over environmental and safety factors in the vicinity of rehab projects, one of the key features of PVC EIP Liners is the absence of creating or emitting potentially harmful by-products.

This presentation will focus on all the features and benefits of utilizing PVC Expand-In-Place Liners, highlighting pre-install quality-controlled manufacturing process made to the ASTM 1504/1871 Standards. It explains the two standards and how they differentiate from F1216, as well as provides a walk-through of the installation process. Geared towards engineers and municipalities that are looking for a rehabilitation liner, that has no emissions and is made of the same material as preferred new-construction systems, exposure to the latest innovations to PVC Liners and how they’ve developed and improved dramatically since their inception decades ago.

Beyond Hockey, Canada Values Its Underground Infrastructure

Canadian communities rely on water, sewer, and stormwater services–all involving underground infrastructure. These systems are under increasing pressure due to aging assets, population growth in urban centers, and climate change.  Infrastructure owners and engineers agree—rehabbing manholes is far more cost effective than replacing. And restoring underground pipe, revitalizing tanks and tunnels is best served by trenchless methodologies.  Utility contractors agree as well. Tune-in to your magazine editor at Trenchless Technology Canada—Michael Kezdi, with 3 guest speakers to learn more about rehabbing, restoring, revitalizing underground infrastructure from the contractor perspective.
