Perma-Liner Industries, LLC. to Hold Live Cured-In-Place-Pipelining Demonstration Days and Educational Sessions

Open House will be held in Anaheim, Cali. on July 18 – 19

ANAHEIM, Cali. – With state-of-the-art technology options, it is not necessary to dig up aging or failing pipes to repair them. There is an efficient and cost-effective way to repair these pipes called the Cured-In-Place-Pipe (CIPP) method. Perma-Liner™ Industries, LLC. (“Perma-Liner”), the leading manufacturer and supplier of trenchless pipeline rehabilitation equipment and materials in North America, is holding an Open House from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. on July 18 – 19 at its Anaheim, Cali. facility located at 1910 E. Wright Cir.

Throughout the multi-day event, company professionals will provide information about Perma-Liner and the technology the company is known for nationwide, which include the Patented Perma-Lateral Lining System, Sectional Point Repair, Perma-Main™ Continuous Lining Top Gun™ and InnerSeal™ Lateral Connection Solution. Attendees will have the opportunity to view and interact with Perma-Liner materials and equipment while also observing live demonstrations in the Anaheim facility.

Additionally, the company’s turn-key trailer systems will be onsite so attendees can learn how the materials are Q/A tested and installed using Perma-Liner Installation Methods. The same certified installation methods are used by municipal agencies, drain cleaners, plumbers, and municipal contractors worldwide.

During the two-day event, Perma-Liner will unveil a new technology that will join its already robust catalog of equipment and materials. This will be the first time the public will get a look at the company’s newest technology.

Anyone interested in learning more about the technology, looking for a certified Perma-Liner installer, or becoming a certified installer is invited to attend. To attend, complete the registration form

Perma-Liner™ Industries, LLC. (“Perma-Liner”), the leading manufacturer and supplier of trenchless pipeline rehabilitation equipment and materials in North America, is introducing a new high-performance epoxy vinyl ester resin called Perma-Liner™ Vinyl Ester. The resin is Bisphenol-A Epoxy-based dissolved in styrene and is available now for purchase.

“We are excited to introduce our newest resin into our already broad spectrum of products,” said Jerry D’Hulster, president of Perma-Liner Industries, LLC. “The high-performance epoxy vinyl ester resin offers an excellent balance of corrosion and performance properties. It will allow Perma-Liner to expand to new markets with its unique capabilities.”

The new resin provides the corrosion resistance, durability and toughness that is required within the CIPP industry. When it comes to certain specific applications where fluid temperature is relatively higher, the resin has an advantage over epoxy. The demanding needs of many applications including high pressure and/or corrosive environments are also met with the Perma-Liner™ Vinyl Ester.

Perma-Liner’s newest product’s molecular architecture delivers a number of benefits, including superior mechanical properties, excellent catalyzed pot life, and meets the requirements of California Greenbook Pickle Jar Test. There is another key benefit of the new resin: less expensive than the Epoxy system.

There are many variables threatening America’s water from pollution issues and aging infrastructure to raising costs and droughts and rainfall patterns as the climate changes. The U.S. used to be a leader when it came to water infrastructure and management. Now, the U.S. is lagging behind receiving D ratings for dams, drinking water and wastewater. It’s time to start focuses on possible solutions to curb these issues – the U.S. can get A ratings and below are some of the solutions that may get the nation where it needs to be.

It starts with creating a national-level governance. Water technically has no boundaries and is very good at sometimes ignoring the municipal boundaries it does have. So what does this mean? One town’s water use or sewage can affect other cities or states that rely on the same water supply. That’s why many countries have a national water authority or commission that oversees water management across the country. The U.S. does not and we’re exactly the opposite. Our nation’s water supply is managed by individual municipalities each doing their own thing. This creates numerous hurdles to climb and makes it difficult to initiate and complete regional projects.

To do almost anything, there needs to be a budget and that’s the case with water infrastructure. The government spends only two percent of its GDP on infrastructure, and water infrastructure makes up just a part of that. The U.S. is spending less than Vietnam, Mexico, and Chile. If the U.S. wants nice things, like a water infrastructure that does not fail us, then the U.S. has to be willing to pay for them.

One possible solution that most do not consider is the private investor sector. Many investors are interested in investing in water-related issues, but they want to know more about the social and environmental effects their investments will have. The problem is that there are a lot of inconsistencies in how companies report these estimates. It has been suggested that investors, academics and regulators need to team up to create a standardized system of evaluating the impacts of sustainable investments. Another challenge is getting investors to understand how complex and important water is, since it affects agriculture and many other business sectors. Investors want to know the bottom line and with more impactful measurements and numbers, this should make it easier for private investors to contribute.

As the climate changes, so will the needs of humans. Changes in heat, humidity and rainfall patterns are going to shape where we live, grow food and produce energy. It’s important to monitor the trends of our nation’s water infrastructure and the trends of the climate so the U.S. and its residents continue having the water supply they need to survive.

Peaceful Valley Lake is a residential Missouri neighborhood known for being a quiet getaway for tourists and an agreeable location to reside. Along with the calm nature of the town, the lake community is aiming to bring down ammonia levels discharged from the community’s lagoon. The completion for this task could take up to a year and a half. Property owners have been working to resolve lagoon discharge issues over the recent years. The city is currently reviewing potential strategies to fund the needed updates, as well as, working to map the lines and identify problems through smoke testing. The process for testing the sewer lines includes setting up a gas powered blower over manholes, blowing smoke into the branch (line) and determining whether there is smoke coming out of the ground. Nearly 100 manholes and 36,000 feet of sewer mains have been located. Additionally, volunteers will be doing some brush clearing in the next few weeks in an effort to find the remaining lines.

After rain events of two-plus-inches in area neighborhoods within the St. Louis region, manholes are being opened in order for flow observations. Given the size of the system, the work to uncover faulty areas of the pipeline is expected to take several weeks. This month workers cleaned out the sewer pipes removing roots and debris in preparation for sealing the older pipes with Cured-in-Place Pipeline. The main goal is to keep wet weather events from inundating the sewer system, causing overflows and sewage backups. Taking the necessary preventative measures in advance can curb the likelihood of flooding and damage to residences, including but not limited to, back up issues in a homeowner’s basement. The utility has been inspecting its sanitary sewer pipes with a camera and also checking lateral lines that run from the main to individual homes.

Coming soon: Perma-Liner Industries is busy making plans for you. We’re planning a “Trenchless Tour” on July 27th in the New England area. We’ll be posting more information on this spectacular event…stay tuned!
