Relining:

The highway I-65 connects Chicago to Indianapolis, the traffic is heavy 24/7 and could not be efficiently rerouted. The job was to to be done without interrupting the traffic, which meant the culvert had to be slip lined. Plasson USA provided 280 FT of 120” Spirolite pipe.

Steel-Reinforced HDPE (SRHDPE) VS. Spirolite Pipe

Spirolite and Steel-Reinforced HDPE are both considered profile pipes that use an increased moment of inertia to act like a conventional pipe wall, but that is where the comparison between the two ends. Spirolite Profile HDPE pipe offers distinct advantages for long-term service over steel-reinforced HDPE piping (SRHDPE).

Lift Station:

The unique design includes a lifeguard headquarters building that is adjacent to the station where it shares a common shoring wall with the lift station.

Spirolite:

Spirolite is a cost-efficient, durable, weather and corrosion-resistant solution that is recognized by fluid flow experts as the leading technology in large diameter thermoplastic pipes.

Model Specifications:

Model SpecificationsProfile wall HDPE pipe fittings for sewer and drain profile wall.

Electrofusion:

Spirolite EF pipe welds easily together to form a stronger, more reliable seal that will not break or leak like other pipe joining systems available today.

Relining:

Rather than repairing or replacing damaged or failing pipes, relining with Spirolite offers a permanent solution that will extend the life of the failing pipeline for 100+ years.

Manholes:

Spirolite® manholes are corrosion-resistant systems that can be fabricated to permit connection to Spirolite® pipe, as well as other traditional piping materials and traditional types of manholes.

Grout Encasement:

Spirolite pipe is often used as a carrier pipe installed in tunnels or casings. When properly grouted, Spirolite provides a permanent and leak-free solution that will far outlast the original pipe design.

Spirolite Solutions - Harris County, Texas:

HDPE Pipe, Spirolite, was hand selected as the long-term solution to replace storm-damaged Culvert in Harris County, TX.

Learn More

Water Conveyance:

The 2 size pipes offered allowed deliveries with nested pipe, reducing considerable the freight to the job site. In addition the delivery offered adjusted to the installation deadline.

Learn More

Culvert Replacement:

The 72” pipe diameter has been calculated so they will withstand a 500 years flood event. By choosing Spirolite, Harris County can now rest easy because of a leak-free system, with virtually no maintenance necessary for the next 100 years.

Lift Station:

This HDPE bypass structure was engineered with pipes, ladders, a fiberglass platform and a unique valving system that allows it to function as a bypass manhole in an emergency.

Learn More

Vaults:

Geothermal Vaults “Atlantis-Pro” Constructed of 72” or 84” Spirolite piping, 1.50” thick HDPE end walls with 115 Volt Sump Pump and OSHAS approved ladder. Single or Double Manways available

Relining:

Because of its light weight and the “Bell and Spigot” connection, the profile pipes couldn’t easily be installed, each section being connected to the previous and then pushed into the existing culvert, under live flow. The only way to reline the existing culvert and keep the same hydraulic characteristic was using HDPE pipe.
