    ConShield exhibits at TRENCHLESS MIDDLE EAST 2011 CONFERENCE
    Dubai, UAE 10 – 11 October 2011

    CCPA member, ConShield, exhibited at the at TRENCHLESS MIDDLE EAST 2011 CONFERENCE Dubai, UAE 10 – 11 October 2011. In addition to reporting on ConShield participation at the Trenchless Middle East 2011, International Managing Director, Moosa Damerchie, B. Eng. reported that ConShield has been tested recently by two renowned laboratories namely SiTu Bioscience LLC on January 17, 2011 and Microbac Laboratories Inc. a Hauser Laboratories Division on November 05, 2010. These tests show beyond any shadow of doubt that ConShield kills the acid producing bacteria.

    Ashley Rammeloo P.Eng Sewer Operations Engineer with City of London, Ontario, states in her paper that was presented at No Dig WDC March 27-31, 2011 titled “Dealing with H2S Corrosion in the Gordon Trunk Sewer” and I quote: “The liquid additive for concrete from ConShield Technologies Inc. has performed well to date and appears to provide an effective means of corrosion control for maintenance structures which can be introduced during the casting process. It appears to be an excellent option for new or replacement infrastructure whereH2S generation is a concern”.

      Lined Manhole Remains Intact after Sewer Collapses
      Minimize
      Lined Manhole Remains Intact after Sewer CollapsesIn late July, the City of Chicago experienced unusually heavy rainfall with accumulations exceeding 7 inches in just a few short hours. Such heavy storm events overburden systems causing uncommonly high erosion of pipe and manholes in combination systems that convey both storm water and sanitary waste. Wastewater treatment providers are very familiar with the high cost of treatment and transportation resulting from “inflow and infiltration” and cities invest millions to control it. But, an even more serious problem that has immediate and costly consequences is “infilrosion” … below grade erosion caused by the in-washing of soil through joints and defects in pipe and manholes.

      On August 4th just such a severe storm event resulted in the collapse of an old sewer line in downtown Chicago. The collapsed pipe in the middle of busy Marquette Avenue sank its surrounding pavement by two feet.

      The good news is that the old brick manhole had been recently lined by Benchmark Construction Company with Permacast® MS-10,000 cement fortified with ConShield. The manhole did not sink but remained intact and in place! This minimized street damage and avoided the immediate danger to pedestrian and vehicular traffic.

      “We are proud of the performance of our Permacast system but, frankly, it’s no surprise to us”, stated Bill Shook, President of APM PERMAFORM, the manufacturer of the Permacast® system. “Our materials and their placement with our patented bi-directional SpinCaster are engineered to be fully structural.” Benchmark Construction Company has installed the Permacast liner system in more than 100,000 manholes and catch basins in Chicago since 2004 when the City started its comprehensive NO DIG structural replacement program.
