Grouting systems from CUES.

Logiball manufactures a complete line of multi-size reinforced inflatable plugs used for testing bypassing and controlling the flow in gravity sewers. Logiball also manufactures a complete line of carrier packers for the installation of trenchless point repairs (4”-36” pipes). Over the years we have developed state of the art test & seal grouting packers for mainline joints (6”-144”), elliptical pipes, lateral pipe joints (4”-8”) and lateral connection packers (6”-24” mainlines with 4”-6” laterals up to thirty feet from the connection).Over the last decade the Logiball Lateral Packers have been used to test & seal over 100,000 lateral connections. 800.246.5988,

Aries Industries
Aries' grout systems are designed and built for continuous operations. Aries offers a wide range of outfitting components and configurations to increase the production and reliability of the truck system including electrically driven Triplex CAT pumps for constant pumping pressure. A key feature is the five-part (penta) hose for reliable lateral grouting, larger volume water and mixing tanks for increased grouting capacity and a special winter operation package to increase equipment utilization throughout the year.

Prime Resins
The One Touch Packer saves time and money on injection of chemical grouts and epoxy resins in sound or deteriorating concrete. The 10 mm One Touch Packer is a cost-effective alternative to traditional high pressure injection ports and mechanical packers. Max pressure of the packer is 5,000 psi. The head is designed to break off using a standard hammer, increasing efficiency of finishing the injection holes once injection is complete. 800.321.7212,
