Grouting Technology & Equipment: Rehab Focus

Grouting technology from Avanti International, CUES, Pipe Renewal Technologies, Logiball, Aries Industries and Prime Resins.

Avanti Intl.
Avanti’s AV-100 is a chemically reactive, low viscosity gel that creates long-lasting water barriers and superb soil stabilization. AV-100 permeates anywhere water can travel and cures in controllable set times of five seconds to ±10 hours. AV-100 is used to rehabilitate and sustain municipal sanitary sewer collection systems, eliminating infiltration. 281.486.5600,

CUES offers a full line of portable, truck and trailer mounted grout rehabilitation systems for mainline, manhole and lateral joint sealing with the latest CCTV equipment and decision support software. Contact CUES to check out our new “Easy Grout” computerized grouting system, featuring a graphical user interface that leads you intuitively through the joint testing and grouting processes. The software includes help files, tool tip descriptions, real time monitoring, and recommended settings. The system consolidates all the valves, electrical controls, etc., into a single instrumentation cabinet that can be quickly swapped with a loaner unit if required. 800.327.7791,

Pipe Renewal Technologies

Janssen Process is a no-dig remedy that addresses the underlying cause of lateral connection failures: inadequate bedding and structural support. Fast-curing resins are robotically pressure-injected into the cavities around a lateral, to create bedding that permanently eliminates root intrusion, infiltration and voids. It also seals the liner to the mainline at the lateral interface, preventing seepage between the two. Using the Janssen Process, a single truck renovates more laterals per day than conventional methods. 866.936.8476,


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- to 36-inch pipes). Over the years we have developed state of the art test and seal grouting packers for mainline joints (6-144 inches), elliptical pipes, lateral pipe joints (4-8 inches) and lateral connection packers (6- to 24-inch mainlines with 4- to 6-inch laterals up to 30 feet from the connection). 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,
