Cartridge Style PVC Restrained Joints: Efficiency, Performance and Sustainability
The benefits of trenchless technology are well understood by all in our industry – more cost-effective, and less disruptive to streets, driveways, and landscaping. However, what’s less clear to many engineers and city officials faced with a wide selection of materials and processes is the impact material selection has on system performance, risk, installation requirements and the environment. This seminar will present the engineering considerations involved in selecting PVC pipe for water/sewer trenchless installation projects, focusing on “cartridge-style” assembly considerations, structural and flow performance, pressure-handling capacity, and compatibility with existing systems. Design and key decision criteria will also be presented to assist in defining what type of thermoplastic pipe is best suited for a particular trenchless application. There will be two case studies, one water distribution and one gravity sewer, to review the design, financial, installation, and operational considerations to meet owner/municipality requirements. We will discuss the three primary cartridge style joining methods: Restrained Joint Integral Bell, Coupled Pipe, and Flush Joint PVC pipe.
