Rick Gage, Vice President of Sales at LMK Technologies, has been named to the board of directors for the Midwest Society for Trenchless Technology (MSTT). The non-profit organization was established in 1998 to promote trenchless technology education and its public benefits in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Ohio and Wisconsin. “MSTT is dedicated to advancing the science and practice of trenchless technology through training, education and field demonstrations,” says Leonard Ingram, MSTT executive director. “Rick will be a wonderful advocate for our society, helping to spread the word and increase the visibility of this eco-friendly and cost-effective approach to repairing broken, cracked or worn out lateral sanitary sewer lines.” “Many municipalities and industry professionals are still unaware of the value afforded through the latest ‘no dig’ technologies,” adds Gage. “This includes the ability to easily and cleanly repair underground sanitary sewer lines without digging up driveways, landscapes, porches and other outdoor structures. It is truly a pleasure to discuss and promote the benefits of a technology that offers so many environmental and cost-saving advantages.”

LMK’s T-Liner is a one-piece homogenous main and lateral CIPP connection liner that is ASTM F2561 compliant. T-Liner has a uniform wall thickness and incorporates compressible lining material at the upstream and downstream ends creating a smooth tapered transition to the host pipe. Both the mainline and lateral sections are formed as a structural cylinder that renews 18 inches and 360 degrees of the mainline and extends up the lateral pipe as one continuous lining. T-Liner with Insignia compression gasket-sealing technology between the host pipe and the T-Liner provides a verifiable non-leaking system.
