A lok gasket

A lok gasket DEFAULT

Flexible boots provide an excellent sealing method for watertight connections to manholes and other sanitary and storm sewer structures, far superior than the option of non-shrink grout that has been used in the past. Phoenix Precast maintains an extensive inventory of flexible boots. For larger diameter pipes, we can offer an A-LOK Storm gasket for the pipe to manhole connection.

Phoenix Precast also stocks SLIPSIL, the new generation sealing plugs developed by BEELE Engineering.  These seals are designed to provide a fire safe and gas and water tight seal for transits carrying single or multiple plastic or metal pipes. Compared with other sealing plugs the SLIPSIL plug is the easiest to install.  The plugs can be exposed to high pressures immediately after installation. Due to the new design much wider tolerances of ducted pipes and conduit sleeves can be adopted.

THE NEXT LEVEL OF FLEXIBLE CONNECTORS

A-LOK PREMIUM ASTM C-923 APPLICATION


ALOK PREMIUM

Designed to produce a
guaranteed watertight
seal between pipe and
concrete, the ALOK
Premium flexible pipeto-manhole connector
provides maximum
performance on the job
site. Its unique design
not only saves valuable
project time, but also
ensures longevity and
offers unsurpassed
environmental benefits.

ALOK Premium
Cast in A-LOK Premium Connector.
For all types of smooth wall pipe.
connectors prevent
infiltration and
ex-filtration into wastewater or stormwater systems, and are installed
in the precast structure in a way that does not require coring or
placement after the base component is cast. This eliminates residual
waste from coring, disposal of the slugs or wasted raw material
utilization or energy. Once cast-in, the connector becomes an integral
component of the structure wall.
ALOK Premium has demonstrated in tests that it will meet and
exceed 13 psi of hydrostatic water pressure.

MATERIAL
Extruded from compounds formulated for wastewater applications
and engineered to conform to the requirements of
section 4.1.1 of ASTM C-923, the standard rubber connector is
available in alternative compounds upon request. Contact an ALOK
representative regarding special applications, such as the presence of
hydrocarbons.

KEY ADVANTAGES
The external appearance of the ALOK Premium connector appears to
be a standard connector, but under differential loading or pipe deflection
it will instantaneously react and redistribute its visco-elastic dynamic
core material to maintain its circumferential sealing pressure. This
visco-elasticity behavior is made possible by introducing a blend of
environmentally friendly fibers, binders, polymers and congealing agents
into the connector core which provides a controllable and dynamic
viscose fluid within the connector. In most installations, this material will
remain equally distributed throughout the core of the connector provided
proper pipe bedding practices have taken place. In the event that shortterm or long-term settlement of the pipe begins to occur, the core

material will react by redistributing and equalizing the blended materials


to maintain its proper sealing compression.
A specific combination of fibers and congealing agents have been
selected to prevent the escape or loss of material through absorption or
from minor punctures or tears that could occur during the initial coupling
of the connector and during its service life.
Benefits and advantages include:
1. Functioning on pure compression, the ALOK Premium allows for
fast and easy field installation. After the pipe is beveled and the
connector and pipe are cleaned and lubricated, the pipe is simply
centered in the connector and inserted. Backfilling can be done
immediately, thus enhancing project safety and overcoming the
typical problems of water, running sand and other unstable trench
conditions.
2. Efficient geometry of the profile lowers the coupling force required to
insert the pipe into both radius and flat wall connector designs.
Lower coupling force translates into quicker and easier installation.
3. Increased nominal pipe diameter tolerance over conventional
compression connector designs while still maintaining up to 10
degrees of omnidirectional axial deflection.
4. Dynamic self-sealing core material can compensate for changes in
dimensions and physical eccentricity.
5. Available in a range of sizes from 8 through 48 utilizing existing
ALOK mandrels.
6. Backed by standard A-LOK Watertight Guarantee.
7. Like other ALOK connectors on larger-diameter pipe where size
prohibits a gasket from being installed in a flat plane, the ALOK
Premium can be configured for casting in a curve with the connector
staying perpendicular to the center line of the pipe. Discovered
through years of extensive research and development, this
configuration causes no loss of compression or deflection.

A flexible pipe to manhole connector shall be used whenever a pipe penetrates


into a precast concrete manhole or structure. The connector shall be The ALOK
Premium Connector as manufactured by ALOK Products, Inc., Tullytown, PA or
approved equal.
The design of the connector shall provide a flexible, watertight seal between the
pipe and concrete structure. The connector shall assure that a seal is made
between:
1. The connector and the structure wall by casting the connector integrally with
the structure wall during the manufacturing process in a manner that it will not
pull out during pipe coupling. The connector shall also be capable of being cast
into a round structure by curving the connector in a manner that allows it to
remain centrally located within the structure wall and perpendicular to the pipe.
This configuration will result in no loss of seal or deflection of pipe entering a
concrete structure.
2. The seal between the connector and the pipe shall be made by the
compression of the connector between the outside circumference of the factory
installed smooth oversleeve of a corrugated pipe or the smooth surface of a
traditional pipe and the interior hole opening of the structure. The connector shall
be the only component to affect the seal between the pipe and structure.

PRODUCT REFERENCES
A.) ASTM C-1478

The ALOK STM is a


flexible pipe-to-manhole connector
designed for the prevention of soil and
water infiltration into
stormwater sewer
systems. It can be
used with both round
and elliptical shaped
pipes and curved and
flat wall structures. It
is available for 8"
diameter and larger
pipes.

MATERIAL
The standard connector is extruded from a polyisoprene compound
engineered to conform with the requirements outlined in section
4.1.1 of ASTM C-1478 Standard Specification for Storm Drain
Resilient Connectors Between Reinforced Concrete Storm Sewer
Structures, Pipes, and Laterals. Alternative compounds are available for unusual applications upon special order.

TEST

KEY ADVANTAGES
The ALOK STM Connector functions on pure compression, making
field installation quick and easy. Just clean and lubricate the connector
and pipe, center the pipe in the connector, and insert. This rapid installation permits immediate backfilling, enhancing project safety and overcomes the normal problems encountered with water, running sand and
other unstable trench conditions. This results in shorter job projections,
while mininizing traffic interruption and cost overruns.
The ALOK STM provides up to 10 of omnidirectional deflection while
still maintaining a watertight seal. This design allows the connector to
compensate for shear due to settlement or ground movement preventing
water and soil infiltration into the sewer system. This proper pipe-tostructure connection minimizes the chance of pothole formation and
sediment build-up in the storm system, saving states and municipalities
money over the life of the structure.
On larger diameter pipe when size prohibits a gasket from being installed
in a flat plane, an ALOK STM Connector can be configured for casting
in a curve with the connector staying perpendicular to the center line of
the pipe. This design has resulted from years of extensive research and
development and causes no loss of compression or deflection.

A flexible pipe to manhole connector shall be used whenever a pipe
penetrates into a precast concrete manhole or structure used in a stormwater
drainage system.
The connector shall be the ALOK STM CONNECTOR as manufactured by
ALOK PRODUCTS, INC., Tullytown, PA, or approved equal.
The design of the connector shall provide a flexible, watertight seal between the pipe
and concrete structure. The connector shall assure that a seal is made between:
(1) The connector and the structure wall by casting the connector
integrally with the structure wall during the manufacturing process in a manner
that it will not pull out during pipe coupling. The connector shall also be capable
of being cast into a round structure by curving the connector in a manner that
allows it to remain centrally located within the structure wall and perpendicular
to the pipe. This configuration will result in no loss of seal or deflection of pipe
entering a concrete structure.
(2) The seal between the connector and the pipe shall be made by the compression of the connector between the outside circumference of the pipe and the interior hole opening of the structure. The connector shall be the only component to
affect the seal between the pipe and structure.
The connector shall be made from materials that conform to the physical and
chemical requirements outlined in Section 4, Materials and Manufacture of
ASTM C-1478 Standard Specification for Storm Drain Resilient Connectors
Between Reinforced Concrete Storm Sewer Structures, Pipes, and Laterals, and
the overall design will meet or exceed Section 7, Test Methods and
Requirements of ASTM C-1478.
The connector shall be sized specifically for the type of pipe being used and shall
be installed in accordance with the recommendations of the manufacturer.

INCOMPARABLE PIPE-TO-MANHOLE CONNECTORS FOR SANITARY SYSTEMS

X-CEL
ALOK X-CEL
Designed to produce a
guaranteed watertight
seal between pipe and
concrete, the ALOK
X-CEL flexible pipe-tomanhole connector
provides maximum
performance on the job
site. Its unique design
not only saves valuable
project time, but also
ensures longevity and
offers unsurpassed
environmental benefits.
ALOK X-CEL connectors prevent infiltration and ex-filtration into
wastewater or stormwater systems, and are installed in the precast
structure in a way that does not require coring or placement after the
base component is cast. This eliminates residual waste from coring,
disposal of the slugs or wasted raw material utilization or energy.
Once cast-in, the connector becomes an integral component of the
structure wall.
Based on the traditional ALOK connector, the X-CEL's enhanced
features improve performance. Take the patented water pocket for
example, which utilizes the untapped pressure of ground water to
exert a clamping force around the connector and pipe, allowing the
connector to perform in deeper installations.
Demonstrated in tests higher than 15 psi of hydrostatic water pressure, the X-CEL's unique design provides 45 percent more rubber
contact with the pipe, allowing for greater pipe deflection.

MATERIAL
Molded or extruded from compounds formulated for wastewater
applications and engineered to conform to the requirements of
section 4.1.1 of ASTM C-923, the standard rubber connector is available
in alternative compounds upon request. Contact an ALOK representative regarding special applications, such as the presence of hydrocarbons.

KEY ADVANTAGES
The ALOK X-CEL offers distinct advantages for engineers, specifiers,
precasters and municipalities. An enhanced profile gives the connector
45% greater rubber contact with the pipe, thus allowing the pipe to be
deflected in excess of 10 degrees of omnidirectional deflection, all the
while maintaining a watertight seal. These enhancements allow for
more flexibility to compensate for pipe shear due to settlement or
ground movement.

KEY ADVANTAGES (continued)


On larger-diameter pipe, where size prohibits a gasket from being
installed in a flat plane, the X-CEL can be configured for casting in a
curve with the connector staying perpendicular to the center line of the
pipe. Discovered through years of extensive research and development,
the configurations cause no loss of compression or deflection.
Functioning on pure compression, the X-CEL allows for fast and
easy field installation. After the connector and pipe are cleaned and
lubricated, the pipe is simply centered in the connector and inserted.
Backfilling can be done immediately, thus enhancing project safety and
overcoming the typical problems of water, running sand and other
unstable trench conditions.
For Specifiers, the X-CEL connector offers a guaranteed solution to the
age-old containment system problem of the best way to connect pipes
and concrete structures. Precasters using X-CEL connectors experience
increased satisfaction due to their ability to offer a complete watertight,
guaranteed product, while municipalities that install X-CEL will
ultimately spend less on road repair by avoiding the possibility of pot/sink
holes that are often the result of leaking, non-connected, systems.

KEY ADVANTAGES
The INSERTALOK Connectors function on pure compression making
field installation quick and easy. Clean and lubricate both connector
and pipe, center pipe in connector, and insert.
The connector provides a tapered profile which enhances coupling
characteristics by allowing final compression to be gradual, thereby
reducing the overall coupling force.
The INSERTALOK Connectors can be installed in a precision cast or
cored opening as a mainline connector for new construction, a retrofit or a tie in for new construction.
The connector assures a positive watertight connection providing over
7 degrees of omnidirectional deflection to eliminate infiltration and
shear due to settlement or ground movement. This flexibility permits
immediate backfill enhancing project safety, and overcoming the
problems normally encountered with water, running sand and other
unstable trench conditions.

GrandSlam Lubricant is a new material specifically formulated for pipe penetrations


into all A-LOK connectors as well as joining all types of pipes in trenches and manholes.

Very Slippery! GrandSlam Lubricant reduces friction of the gasket against the
bell and the pipe against the connector. It helps pipe slide in smoothly minimizing the
possibility of the gasket to displace and cause bell damage or the beveled pipe to tear
the connector.

Special Wax Technology! GrandSlam contains a special wax that fills in the
microscopic pores in concrete. By filling in the pores, gaskets slide rather than catch on
the concrete surface.

Clean and Neat to Use! GrandSlam Lubricant washes off hands, tools and
clothing with soap and water. It has no bad smell and does not get soupy, so field
crews are more willing to apply it properly ensuring good field performance.

Easy to Apply! GrandSlam Lubricant clings to everything! Gaskets, connectors,


concrete, PVC, ductile iron, HDPE, clay, and steel surfaces. Its unique formulation
keeps the lubricant where it belongs whether applied by hand, swab or brush. A totally
lubricated area minimizes the threat of damage during installations.

Compatible! GrandSlam Lubricant does not affect or swell rubber or plastic


gaskets. It contains no hydrocarbon or silicone greases. It does not affect gaskets
over time to cause eventual leakage or breakage.

Safe and Non Toxic! Harmless to people and the environment when used as
directed. Can be safely used in the field. Suitable for potable water systems. Meets
NSF/ANSI Standard 61.

By preventing even one damaged pipe per month, GrandSlam Lubricant can pay for itself
over and over again!

Application & Installation


1. GrandSlam Lubricant is ready to use in the pail. Do not dilute, thin, or otherwise alter
its consistency. For best results lubricate surfaces right before making connections.
2. Clean all surfaces before applying lube. Outside the pipe and all over the connector for
pipe penetrations. Inside the bell outside the spigot for pipe to pipe.
3. For pipe penetrations into a connector, bevel the pipe, lubricate the connector all around,
then lubricate the pipe back its diameter up to 21.
4. The lubricant can be brushed on, swabbed on, or wiped on by hand with a cloth glove. Be
sure to get full lubricant coverage. Dont leave any area DRY. GrandSlam Lubricant
makes such applications easy by grabbing and clinging to all surfaces.
5. Because GrandSlam lubricant will adhere when applied under water, steps 1-6 can be
done in the rain or in a wet trench just like an A-LOK pipe installation.
6. After lubrication, a pipe can be centered and inserted into a connector or pipes can be
aligned and joined by an approved coupling method.
7. For pipe to pipe installations position the gasket in the groove and equalize its stretch by
lifting it slightly with a screwdriver while completely circling the pipe. Apply lubrication on
top of the newly inserted gasket using one of the methods in step 4.

PIPE TO MANHOLE CONNECTOR FOR SANITARY OR STORMWATER SYSTEMS

G3 BOOT SYSTEM
ALOK G3 BOOT SYSTEM
The Revolutionary
G3 Band makes
installation into a
structure simple
and fast. Just install
the connector
perpendicular to the
hole and tighten the
stainless steel nut. As
the nut is tightened, a
compressive force is
applied to the G3
band ends, causing
them to slide past
each other into
straight alignment.
G3 BOOT SYSTEM
This movement
WITH
increases the bands
COMPONENT PACKAGING
overall circumference
AND TORQUE WRENCHES
and compresses the
connector against the
opening in the structure wall, creating a watertight seal. To insure
the best seal, place the bolt in the 12 oclock position of the hole
opening and tighten the nut to the specified torque value.

MATERIAL
The connector shall be made from materials that conforms to the
physical and chemical requirements outlined in Section 4, Materials
and Manufacture of ASTM C-923 Standard Specification for
Resilient Connectors Between Reinforced Concrete Manhole
Structures, Pipes, and Laterals, and the overall design will meet or
exceed Section 7, Test Methods and Requirements of ASTM C923.
The connector shall be sized specifically for the type of pipe being
used and shall be installed in accordance with the recommendations
of the manufacturer.

KEY ADVANTAGES
The G3 Boot System can withstand 15 of omnidirectional
deflection and of centerline offset while still maintaining a
watertight connection. This flexibility eliminates infiltration due to
pipe shear caused by settlement or ground movement.
The inner O-ring design of the G3 Connector eliminates rubber
wrinkling, compensates for pipe irregularity and wall thickness to
insure a watertight seal.
G3 Component Packaging, featuring a tough loop lock fastener
that keeps installation instructions, take down clamp, boot and
band secure together from factory to job site.

PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS
A flexible pipe to manhole connector shall be used whenever a pipe
penetrates into a precast concrete manhole or structure.
The connector shall be the G3 Boot System featuring component
packaging as manufactured by ALOK PRODUCTS, INC.,
Tullytown, PA, or approved equal.
The design of the connector shall provide a flexible, watertight seal
between the pipe and concrete structure. The connector shall
assure that a seal is made between (1) the connector and the
structure wall by placing the connector and expansion band into
the center third of the concrete hole opening. The band is then
expanded by tightening the expansion mechanism increasing the
bands overall circumference and compressing the connector
against the sides of the hole opening. (2) The seal between the
connector and the pipe shall be made by compressing the
connector against the outside circumference of the pipe by means
of a stainless steel take-down band.

WARNING: To ensure the G3 Boot System remains a flexible watertight connector, it


is ALOK Products, Inc. strong recommendation that no mortar be placed between
the pipe and wall of the concrete structure. The use of mortar in this area would
decrease the effectiveness of the connector to compensate for shear caused by
settlement or ground movement.
NOTE: ALOK strongly suggests use of proper torque wrenches to secure the G3
Boot in the structure as well as to secure the takedown clamp around the
connector and pipe. Both torque wrenches are available through ALOK Products,

CAUTION: When installing pipe stubs for future pipeline installation, all stubs must
be properly restrained to prevent any movement by means other than the G3
Connector.

flexible connector specifically
engineered to produce a
positive watertight seal for
pipes entering precast concrete
structures and the structure
itself. The QUIKLOK
CONNECTOR is manufactured
to meet or exceed all material
and test requirements set forth
in ASTM C-923 titled
Resilient Connectors
Between Reinforced Concrete
Manhole Structures, Pipes,
and Laterals.

PERFORMANCE STANDARD

MATERIAL
The QUIKLOK Connector is molded from an EPDM compound
engineered to conform with the requirements of section 4.1.1 of
ASTM C-923. Alternative compounds are available for unusual
applications upon special order.
All stainless steel hardware is in compliance with section 4.2,
Mechanical Devices of ASTM C-923.

KEY ADVANTAGES
The QUIKLOK CONNECTOR assures a positive watertight connection
and provides up to 20 degrees omni-directional deflection and 1.00" of
vertical or horizontal movement without loss of seal. This deflection
permits pipe to structure settling without damage to the pipe or loss of
the watertight seal and will also allow for many angles of incoming pipe.
The QUIKLOK cast in Boot Connector is manufactured with the
stainless steel takedown clamp as an integral part of the rubber
connector.
The correct takedown clamp travels in the installation position from the
time it leaves A-LOK, while it is cast in the structure and until it arrives
at the job site. After pulling out the connector its in position ready to be
tightened down around the pipe on the outside of the structure.

The QUIKLOK CONNECTOR meets or exceeds all material and test


requirements of ASTM C-923 titled Resilient Connectors Between

A flexible pipe to manhole connector shall be used whenever a pipe


penetrates into a precast concrete manhole or structure.
The connector shall be the QUIKLOK CONNECTOR as manufactured by ALOK
PRODUCTS, INC., Tullytown, PA, or approved equal.
The design of the connector shall provide a flexible, watertight seal between the pipe
and concrete structure. The connector shall assure that a seal is made between:
(1) The connector and the structure wall by casting the connector
integrally with the structure wall during the manufacturing process in a manner
that it will not pull out during pipe coupling.
(2) The seal between the connector and the pipe shall be made by compressing
the connector against the outside circumference of the pipe by means of a
stainless steel take-down band.
The connector shall be made from materials that conform to the physical and
chemical requirements outlined in Section 4, Materials and Manufacture of
ASTM C-923 Standard Specification for Resilient Connectors Between
Reinforced Concrete Manhole Structures, Pipes, and Laterals, and the overall
design will meet or exceed Section 7, Test Methods and Requirements of ASTM
C-923.
The connector shall be sized specifically for the type of pipe being used and shall
be installed in accordance with the recommendations of the manufacturer.

CORROSION PROTECTION FOR CONCRETE STRUCTURES

DURA PLATE 100 LINER SYSTEM


ALOK DURA PLATE 100 LINER SYSTEM
The Duraplate 100 Liner
is a corrosion protection
system for concrete
structures used in
wastewater, stormwater
and light industrial
applications. It is an
extremely durable as well
as resilient PVC polymer
blend material that is
thermoformed into a
sectional design. The
compression joints allow
for secure installation of
the sections during the
Precast process and
eliminate the need for welding.

MATERIAL
The liner and seals are all formed from materials selected for their
chemical resistance properties. The main panel sections are formed
from a polymer blend, while the vertical panel joints are sealed with
an EPDM rubber, and the horizontal structure joints with an approved
preformed butyl sealant.

KEY ADVANTAGES
The Dura Plate 100 Liner System was designed on a three point
design philosophy.
1)

2)

3)

The system will provide corrosion protection to the concrete


substrate, by shielding it with a protective barrier of inert
material embedded to the inside wall of the structure. Each
panel features a minimum return on each edge to ensure
proper sealing.
The design will minimize the freight cost by using a sectional
design that will allow the pieces to be nested within each other
while being shipped to the precaster.
The design will provide easy installation without the need for
welding sections together, but still providing complete corrosion
protection to the structure.

PERFORMANCE STANDARD
The Dura Plate 100 Liner meets or exceeds all material and test
requirements as outlined by the manufacturer.

PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS
A protective liner shall be used whenever a precast concrete manhole or
structure is used in a sanitary or light industrial sewer system in which the
potential for corrosive attack to the concrete substrate exists.
The liner shall be the Dura Plate 100 Liner as manufactured by A-LOK
Products, Inc., Tullytown, PA or approved equal.
The design of the liner shall provide a corrosion protective barrier permanently
embedded to the inside wall of the structure. The liner system shall assure
that:
1) The liner shall become an integrally part of the structure wall by casting
the liner with the structure during the manufacturing process. The liner
shall also be capable of being cast into a round structure by curving the
liner in a manner that allows it to remain permanently attached to the
inside structure wall.
2) Vertical joints between the liner sections shall be made by the mechanical
compression of a EPDM rubber strip between the returns of the two
panels with self tapping screws spaced every 3 inches apart.
3) Horizontal joints between structure sections shall be sealed with an
approved butyl strip compressed between the sections in a manner as
recommended by the manufacturer.
4) The liner system shall be composed from materials that are corrosion
resistant by nature and conforms to the physical and chemical
requirements as determined by the manufacturer.
5) The liner shall be sized specifically for the type of structure being used
and shall be installed in accordance with the recommendations of the
manufacturer.

PRECAST INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS

1. Inspect core for sharp or jagged edges that could damage the liner
during the shipping process.
2. Place Dura Plate 100 Liner panels level around the core of the form.
Form release agent is not necessary.
3. Install the vertical joints by placing the black rubber strip between the
panel returns, making sure that the flap of the strip is fitted over one of
the returns.
4. Place backing plate on the inside return of panel that the flap fits over.
Hold together with spring loaded clamps evenly spaced about 12"
apart.
5. Secure the panels together with fasteners placed every 3 inches,
making sure that each fastener is tightened to 5 in-lbs.
Note: The fasteners must be installed from the side opposite the flap,
straight thru the backing plate, parallel to the liner.
6. Repeat for all seams.
Note: Caulk can be placed between the form core and liner returns to
minimize concrete seepage during production.
7. Install reinforcement into form with any other necessary parts needed
for the structure.
8. Pour concrete around the liner evenly to prevent shifting of the liner.
9. Vibrate and compact the concrete in a manner that will protect the liner
and produce a dense, homogenous structure.
10. Take precaution to protect the liner from sharp or jagged objects while
stripping from the form.
11. Visually inspect the liner after production for any cuts or tears. If repairs
are needed, refer to Dura Plate 100 Liner repair bulletin for proper
repair procedures.
12. If steps or ladders are to be installed, drill all holes in liner larger than
the diameter of the step. Install steps or ladder then caulk area around
step and liner with FR500 caulking material (Lap Sealant).
13. Protect all hole opening surfaces with a minimum 1/8 inch coverage of
Sewer Guard that overlaps the liner at least a 1 inches.

12

JOB SITE INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS


1. When unloading the structure be careful. Take measures to protect the
liner from being damaged by rocks or other debris. Lift carefully, do not
drag.
2. Clean and install butyl strips around the joint design making sure that
the butyl overlaps both the cement and liner return.
3. Carefully seat each section together making sure enough pressure is
applied to seal the joint.
4. After structure is in place, plug all lift pin inserts and holes with suitable
non-shrink grout.
5. If any damage to the liner occurs at the job site, use Dura Plate 100
Liner repair bulletin for proper repair procedures.

GRADE WORK PROTECTION SYSTEM


Inflow & Infiltration (I&I) deterioration
of grade work is one of the leading
causes of pothole formation around
manholes. Grade work is constantly
being attacked by the pounding and
vibration of traffic, the corrosive effect
of chemicals produced by bacteria
found in sewer systems, and the
freeze/thaw cycle. These forces destroy
the grade work by creating voids that
eventually turn into potholes.

Projects

  • RockValleyStormJob
    Rock Valley Storm Sewer Job

    A-LOK STM connectors were used for this watertight storm sewer job in Rock Valley, Iowa.  The precaster showed the engineer pictures of two other STM box jobs he did in the past year. The engineer liked the idea and convinced the city to use them.  Compression style watertight connections were made to accommodate the following sizes of pipes: 8” PVC, 15”, 18” 24”, 36” and 48” RCP.  All were cast into square structures with sizes ranging from 2’x2’ to 6’x8’ inside. The city of Rock Valley now has written storm water specifications for watertight pipe penetrations in boxes using A-LOK STM connectors. 

  • Langer Connection
    In Kennedy Township near Pittsburgh, PA manholes installed in the late 70's were being attacked by Hydrogen-Sulfide gas, releasing a terrible odor. Twelve new manholes were lined with our Dura-Plate 100 Liners to resist corrosion and outfitted with our Z-LOK connectors to create a watertight structure. Each Dura-Plate Lined manhole was set and connected to the existing clay pipe in about 20 minutes. The smell of raw sewage is gone from this beautiful area of Kennedy Township.
  • Herbert Run
    In Lansdowne, Maryland the objective was to replace old, leaking brick manholes. The contractor called and explained it was taking too long to connect the pipe to the connector. After a visit to the job site, we discovered the sharp edge of the pipes were not beveled, which made it hard to push the pipe through the A-LOK connector. After beveling, the installation was completed within fifteen minutes. The shorts were installed above ground, the manhole was lowered into the trench and the connection was made with existing pipes.
  • Quemahoning Water Transmission Line
    The goal of this project was to obtain more drinking water for Johnstown, Pennsylvania. Above is a picture of the 60'' riveted iron pipes that used to carry water to Johnstown. This job consisted of twenty-two miles of new pipe to transport the 5.75 billion gallons of water from the dam. Most of the one hundred manholes from the job were outfitted with our X-CEL watertight connectors to prevent leaking into the structure to keep the water pumps dry. Now Johnstown has fresh, safe drinking water.
  • Delaware Creek

    This was a stormwater job in Toledo, Ohio. Watertight connectors were chosen over grouting to speed up the installation. The interesting thing about this job was the 42" RCP had an OD of 51.25" which is the very biggest size suggested for the #1640 A-LOK Connectors cast into these manholes. However, the extra flexibility of the A-LOK Premium connector made the installation of the pipe very quick, requiring minimum force.

  • A-2000 Pipe
    This manhole was installed in Payne, Ohio. The picture shows a 36'' A-2000 pipe, with a smooth over sleeve, in position over the top of the pipe corrugations. It's held in place by a piece of 3/4'' plywood that fits down in the corrugation. This keeps the smooth oversleeve from moving during installation of the pipe into the #1310, A-LOK Premium Connector. The oversleeve is lubed, the pipe is centered in the connector and was pushed home.
  • Bar Harbor

    During the late 1980’s in Bar Harbor, New Jersey there was a real problem with Hydrogen-Sulfide gas when the unlined manholes they installed a few years early needed to be replaced. They tried fiberglass manholes which lasted less than 2 years. The local municipality, Long Beach Island, then installed sixteen of our Dura-Plate 100 Liners for the manholes. Below is a picture of the manhole with our liner still protecting the manholes over 20 years later.
