April Rehab News: Insituform wins $13M contract; Boatman joins SAK; CertaFlo expands GreenLine
Responding to the needs of contractors and municipalities, CertainTeed Corporation is expanding its CertaFlo GreenLine PVC Sewer Pipe line to include larger pipe diameters.
When introduced in 2007, CertaFlo GreenLine offered diameters ranging from 4 to 8 inches. With the product line expansion, CertaFlo will also be available in larger 10- and 12-inch diameters, for use in upsizing overloaded smaller lines and for size-on-size replacement of deteriorated pipelines.
“With rural areas across the country becoming more developed in recent years, many municipalities are replacing older, smaller-diameter sewer and water pipe with pipe of a larger diameter to better serve the growing population,” says Steve Gross, director of marketing for CertainTeed’s Pipe Business.
CertaFlo GreenLine is a high-impact polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipe that features CertainTeed’s Certa-Lok Integral Bell restrained joint system. It is available in 10- and 20-foot lengths for ease of use in trenchless applications, such as directional drilling and pipe bursting. The shorter lengths facilitate rapid assembly and allow the use of smaller and more economical construction pit sizes. The pipe’s code-approved light-green color makes camera inspection of sewers easier.
As with all CertainTeed PVC pipe, CertaFlo GreenLine is corrosion-resistant, lightweight, and easy to handle and assemble. CertaFlo GreenLine requires no solvent cements or costly butt fusion equipment, so contractors can quickly and economically assemble one joint at a time.
