Pro-Tec Equipment introduces its line of lightweight Pipeline High Clearance Arches. Designed with pipeline crews in mind, these arches, when paired with eight-feet tall aluminum or eight-feet tall lightweight three-inch steel trench walls, provide 72-inches of vertical pipe clearance, while still allowing crews to use smaller sized machines. 800.292.1225, pro-tecequipment.com

The Sault Locks, in Sault Ste. Marie, MI, provide passage for an average of 10,000 ships each year, only shutting down during the winter months due to weather conditions. To help break up the ice that builds up on and in the locks, a set of air compressors are used to bubble up the water to break the ice. However, the existing air compressors needed to be upgraded.

When you were younger, playing the game hide-and-seek was fun and a great way to just be a kid. When you are looking for a 36-inch pipe with a 42-inch casting and a 30-inch pipe with a 36-inch casting that is causing a short on active fuel lines at a depth of more than 20 feet, it really isn’t that fun of a game. That is what Price Gregory International was faced with on a site in Lisle, IL.

For excavation projects requiring manned entry, shielding and shoring trench walls is a major cost. Material and labor prices escalate as excavations cover more area and become deeper. On many large projects -- especially long runs of large-diameter pipe installation -- slide rail systems have become the preferred method of preventing the collapse of trench walls.

When a 17 mile long Phoenix, AZ, water main was originally installed in 1975, the pipeline from its treatment plant traversed largely undeveloped land.
