Pipe Bursting Manufacturer, TRIC Tools, to Participate in the 2015 (NASTT) No Dig Show held in Denver, Colorado

Alameda, California (EastBayDaily) — TRIC Tools, Inc. will be showcasing its Pipe Bursting technology in Booth 133 at the annual National Association of Trenchless Technology (NASTT) No Dig Show in Denver, CO. This year’s conference takes place March 15th through March 19th at Denver’s Convention Center, 700 14th Street, Denver, CO 80202. CFO Michael Lien, Sales Executive Jay Battin, and Mechanical Engineer Robert Ding will be in Denver representing TRIC.

TRIC will showcase the X30, its state-of-the-art 30-ton lateral Pipe Bursting system, along with its “ground breaking” 50 ton unit, the M50. In 2014, TRIC presented its Lateral Pipe Bursting presentation at the Orlando No Dig Show “The Boom in Sewer Lateral Replacement.” This year, NASTT has added a post conference training titled "Laterals Best Practices Course," which will be presented by Jason Lueke, Civil Engineer at Associated Engineering. Also presenting will be Dr. Ray Sterling, Professor Emeritus at Louisiana Tech University. "Dr. Ray has done more to share the importance of lateral pipe rehab than anyone we know," Jay Battin. The NASTT presentation will be from 2:30 to 5:30 on April 18th and at 8:30 am to 12:00 pm on April 19th. The Best Practices course has come in response to the growing Market in Sewer Lateral Rehabilitation. There are millions of aging sewer laterals, this is the part the of sewer line that connect homeowners’ properties to the municipal sewer system. Many of these laterals or ‘side sewers’ have not been maintained and as a result, allow inflow and infiltration (I/I) into the Municipal Sewer System, polluting waterways while increasing costs and damage to the municipal system. Consequently, there is a compelling need to solve I/I problems caused by sewer laterals. Sewer pipes are in need of repair in many of these communities.

In order to address the growing need for lateral pipeline repairs, the International Pipe Bursting Association (IPBA) plans to release its Lateral Pipe Bursting Specifications at the No Dig Show. For contractors, city engineers, and engineering firms interested in learning more about the changing needs of pipeline replacement in their communities, the IPBA will prove a valuable asset to you.

TRIC’s Pipe Bursting units combine compact size and harness enough power to burst 4" to 6" laterals in an attractive package. TRIC has led the way in providing Lateral Pipe Bursting equipment for contractors since 1996.

TRIC invented and patented the first practical Lateral Pipe Bursting System while simultaneously gaining national approval of HDPE pipe for its use, thus opening the market for trenchless home sewer replacement in America. TRIC has since added municipal cable pulling systems to its arsenal, always employing their formula of modular portability, including pneumatic and steel splitting heads designed to replace various pipe sizes from 1/2" to 12" diameter.
