The longest horizontal directional drilled (HDD) installation of high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe in the United States and Canada was recognized as Project of the Year by the Plastics Pipe Institute, Inc. (PPI). The award was presented to PPI member company ISCO Industries at the association's annual membership meeting in May 2017. PPI is the major North American trade association representing all segments of the plastic pipe industry,

Pure Technologies Ltd. is pleased to announce that, over the past month, its wholly-owned subsidiary, Pure Technologies U.S. Inc. ("Pure U.S."), has been selected by several U.S. water agencies to lead multi-year programs to provide services related to the inspection and management of critical water pipelines. The Calgary-based company has been chosen to lead this new work based on its experience, expertise and industry-leading technology-based solutions for the management of water pipelines consisting of multiple pipe types and sizes around the world. In aggregate, the new work is worth up to $14 million over three to four years.
When your inspection task is to survey a critical pipeline for leaks, nothing is more satisfying than trusting your technology to predict the leak location and then standing by as the client excavates the area to find a flow of water within one meter of exactly where you said it would be.
While pipeline management may seem unaffordable, understanding the condition and targeting repair provides an alternate approach to wholesale replacement and allows operators to accomplish the same de-risking effort with less money.
The City of Montreal believes that the best medicine is preventative medicine, especially as it applies to its water network.
What has a rotating head, modular feet, can quickly navigate up to 5 kilometres through turbid wastewater and deliver live video and integrity information that can aid in detecting leaks and other anomalies in underground pipes?
When watermains in distribution systems spring a leak, the result is usually a relatively minor inconvenience to businesses and residents who might see some excess water on roads and lawns and in the worst situations, a bit of basement flooding. When a major transmission line fails, the amount of water released can be catastrophic, due to the larger-diameter pipes used and the high water pressures involved, which can sometimes be triple the pressure found in a typical watermain and up to 100 times the volume of water.
Pure Technologies Ltd. has announced that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Pure Technologies U.S. Inc.("Pure U.S."), has been selected by The City of Baltimore to lead a multi-year program to provide services related to the management of large-diameter water transmission pipelines. The program contract is expected to be for a period of five years for an amount up to US$20 million with the option to extend for an additional five years. Work is anticipated to begin in 2015.
