What We Do
Infra-Tect LLC offers innovative solutions to problems commonly found while working with water and sewer pipelines, including time required for pipe-joint installation, safety issues and corrosion prevention. Infra-Tect pipeline products are developed with total lifecycle costs and considerations as well as initial cost analysis.
We believe that new or replacement pipelines must be designed and safely installed with total lifecycle costs and considerations in mind rather than initial cost analysis. Infra-Tect sets out to protect America's infrastructure, hence our name. Our mission, simply stated, is "Protecting America's Infrastructure and Workers."
Corrosion: The American Society of Civil Engineers published a report entitled "Report Card for America's Infrastructure 2013", scoring the U.S. water/sewer distribution network with a D+. This failure is due, in large part, to the corrosion of the metal pipes that make up the bulk of our country's water infrastructure. Municipalities will reap the benefits in enforcing the use of the Bevel-Sert at every joint, because by doing so, pipe segments are electrically isolated.
Safety: Due to OSHA regulations, workers are no longer able to grind a bevel onto pipe with a cut-off saw. Gone are the days where an infrastructure installation or repair can be accomplished by exposing the worker to known safety hazards. Municipalities and private/public water and sewer companies and contractors must now insure that their subordinates cease this unsafe practice. As a result, the Bevel-Sert is a necessary safety device for all pipe installers.
