It doesn’t matter whether it is a domestic or commercial concern, in a wide range of environments, we will always do the best for clients or customers, no matter the challenge.
Before we go further into this service, its a good idea to understand what infiltration really is. In the arena of drainage and sewerage systems, infiltration refers to groundwater entering these systems through defects or cracks. These cracks could be in manholes, pipe systems, or any other part of the drainage system.
“Infiltration is more than just a water waste; it can lead to serious structural damage and hygiene issues if left untreated.”
It often occurs in areas where the water table is high, and the drainage system is in poor condition. It is also good to know that manholes and pipe systems, especially, can suffer from infiltration and as a result of this, this is where our Manhole Sealing & Infiltration Repair service comes into play.
AJS Environmental’s team has developed systems and effective strategies for dealing with all kinds of infiltration issues, we don’t it likely and we never have a ‘cowboy’ approach. Our solution is usually the result of more than 20 years of drainage experience. We can handle leak sealing in any substrate – from static plant and sewerage treatment plants to food processing plants, breweries, basements, cellars, and more.
In this context, a substrate is the underlying layer that a structure is built on. These can be made of various materials such as concrete, metal, or even soil, because of the various types the infiltration could show itself in a number of different ways, and that’s why solutions vary and need different approaches for effective sealing.
Mechanical seals are generally used for sealing the leaks in dynamic equipment such as pumps and mixers., these provide a strong barrier between the internal system and the external environment, preventing the outside materials from getting in.
Injection grouts are ideal for filling voids and sealing leaks in porous substrates. They’re particularly useful in applications like concrete repair, soil stabilisation, and sealing leaks in underground pipe systems. The material is usually injected under pressure to make sure it fills any gaps and seals the leak effectively.
Used mainly used for sealing joints in piping systems and structures to prevent the ingress of water, flexible joint sealants maintain their sealing capabilities despite movement or changes in the joint gap, making them ideal for use in systems that are subjected to temperature fluctuations or vibrations.
Pipe lining systems need pipe lining solutions and this solution involves inserting a new, smaller pipe into the existing one. The new pipe is typically made of a flexible and durable material, which conforms to the shape of the old pipe, effectively sealing any leaks.
Composite repair systems involve the use of layers of high-strength, corrosion-resistant composite materials to seal leaks. These solutions are often used in situations where mechanical methods are not viable, such as in complex pipe shapes or in systems that cannot be shut down for repairs.
Our team of experts at AJ’s Environmental are experts in all these methods and can recommend the best solution based on your specific situation.
