Duraliner Technology Presented to International Piping Industry
Underground Solutions, Inc. has become a member of the Uni-Bell PVC Pipe Association.
The Uni-Bell PVC Pipe Association is a non-profit, research/technical trade organization representing all segments of the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipe industry. It was formed by a group of PVC pipe producers who, in 1971, recognized the potential of the product for buried water, sewage, drainage and irrigation systems. Realizing that the quality, performance, and value of PVC pipe and fittings would make it the product of choice for such projects, a group of industry leaders set out to find the best way to convey technical information and research about PVC Pipe and its advantages over other traditional piping materials. Known today as Uni-Bell, it is dedicated to the technical research and education about PVC pipe to specifiers, engineers, contractors and members of academia, its future design, and the needs of such a large, dynamic industry. Uni-Bell is an international organization with membership representing companies from across the globe.
"We are pleased and privileged to welcome Underground Solutions to the Uni-Bell PVC Pipe Association. The Duraliner technology enables water utilities to use today's number one material for water distribution piping (i.e., PVC, for the reliable renewal of corroded metal pipes)," Bob Walker, Uni-Bell's executive director, stated.
The Duraliner Water Line Replacement System allows municipalities to completely rehabilitate deteriorated underground water lines with minimal excavation resulting in a substantial cost savings over conventional "dig and replace" methods.
