Logiball
Logiball offers a complete line of reinforced sleeve installers and carriers for sectional liners (CIP or mechanical locking sleeves) up to 50 feet long for 4- through 36-inch pipes. In their shorter version, the Sleeve Installers are used as end plugs to process manhole-to-manhole liners (deformed, reshaped, expanded and CIPP liners). The Sleeve Installers are made of a two-ply, cross-biased reinforced rubber sleeve that is resistant to hot water and even steam under pressure. The rubber sleeve is secured to the end plate through a series of wedging points for a strong and safe attachment even when the rubber is softened by exposure to high temperatures. 800.246.5988, www.logiball.com
LMK Enterprises
The Performance Liner Sectional system is a unique one-step air-inversion point repair. The liner is vacuum impregnated, meaning it is clean and safe for workers and the environment. No resin is wiped off as the resin saturated liner tube is towed to the point of repair; yet full resin migration is achieved at the point of repair as described in ASTM in F2599-06. This system renews mainlines from 6 to 42 inches. Smaller diameter (8 to 12-inch) sewer pipes can range in length from 3 to 50 feet. Larger diameters can range from 3 to 30 feet. Typically the resin is cured within two hours at ambient temperatures, or as fast as 30 minutes using LMK's steam curing system. 815.433.1275, www.lmkenterprises.com

Link-Pipe
Link-Pipe offers municipalities savings based on switching from replacement and re-lining of the entire pipe to repair of only the damage by spot repair. Link-Pipe’s factory-made high quality stainless steel and PVC sleeves are easy to install and need very little equipment. If during routine inspection damaged pipe is discovered, it takes around 20 minutes to have it repaired using Link-Pipe Grouting Sleeve or SewerSealer. Spot repairs can be installed in pipe diameters of 6-54 inches. Every Grouting Sleeve, SewerSealer Sleeve and Link-Pipe (PVC Sleeve) caries a manufacture 10-year Limited Warranty and is evaluated to give a minimum 100-year service life. 800.265.5696, www.linkpipe.com
