ABEL RECON Expands Its Infrastructure Rehab Service into Ohio

ABEL RECON, part of the Abel Companies of Mountville, Pa., announced the formal expansion of its infrastructure rehabilitation services firm into Ohio.

ABEL RECON will provide structural rehabilitation services to Ohio municipalities, DOT agencies, utilities and industrial firms as licensed applicators of Sprayroq, spray-applied polyurethane liners and Reline America, UV cured-in-place-pipeline products.

“As budgets get increasingly tighter, municipalities and various agencies are looking for more cost-effective means to deal with their aging infrastructure. They are becoming more and more open to trying innovative trenchless technology methods to solve their problems. With the great success we’ve had installing spray-applied polyurethanes and CIPP for our clients in the Mid Atlantic Region we knew that our experience could be of great benefit to other nearby regions who are experiencing the burdens of fixing their assets but needing to do so in a highly efficient and minimally disruptive manner,” says ABEL RECON general manager Hap Witmer.

Since its expansion, ABEL RECON has performed manhole and filter tank rehabilitation for Earnhardt Hill, Ohio, to resolve extreme hydrogren sulfide deterioration and erosion common to wastewater structures by using Spraywall by Sprayroq, a structural polyurethane. They have demonstrated the Reline America UV CIPP technology for the City of Akron, Ohio, installing an 8-in. diameter liner in a VCP mainline that had structural defects. A culvert project near Alvada, Ohio, for the DOT enabled ABEL RECON to showcase a “green” solution with Sprayroq’s Sprayshield Green II, a bio-based spray-applied polyurethane. The purpose of this installation was to provide a protective corrosion barrier to two, 90-ft long, 13-ft wide by 8-ft tall sheet plate culvert that are located underneath Ohio Route 23. Projects like this are just a small sampling of the firm’s extensive experience in trenchless rehabilitation.
