Conducted by Florida Atlantic University, this study compared the chemical resistance of Calcium Aluminate, 100% Pure Fused Calcium Aluminate, and Epoxy-Modified Mortar in a highly corrosive environment, comparable to that of a wastewater environment. Weight loss and pH levels were measured and recorded weekly for a seven week period. The outcome demonstrated significant differences between the materials with Epoxy-Modified Mortar drastically out-performing both the Calcium Aluminate and the 100% Pure Fused Calcium Aluminate.
Sewer bypass projects vary in complexity and level of difficulty. From varying flows to accessibility, operation and maintenance requirements, permitting and more, each sewer bypass project presents a unique challenge and thus requires a unique solution. This in-depth case study describes how Sunbelt Rentals met the detailed engineering bypass specifications on a recent project and provided a creative solution to keep the discharge piping out of the creeks where the siphons to be rehabbed crossed.
