Corrosion-resistant liners

SewerGard 210FS protective polymer lining extends the longevity of precast concrete in wastewater applications. Its rapid cure enables quick turnaround and application in cold environments, and reduces downtime, sewage bypass, and delayed scheduling. A full line of SewerGard products is available to accommodate desired thicknesses and application methods. Sauereisen Inc. 412-963-0303. www.sauereisen.com Booth #756


Metal fabrication and reinforcement

A complete line of rebar mats, safety grates and debris guards, manhole cone reinforcement cages, flared-end reinforcement cages, median barrier connecting pins, pipe ties, and lift devices meets precasters' needs for metal fabrication and reinforcement products. A full line of rebar accessories, including spacer wheels, chairs, and slab bolsters, is also available. Haala Industries Inc. 507-794-5821. www.haala.com Booth #836


Recycle plant water and solids

The Auto-Vac C-Series de-watering system filters cement fines and pigment out of batch washouts to yield clear recyclable water and dry manageable solids. Auto- Vac filters are self-cleaning so active concrete will not blind or plug the system. They are ideal for precast producers dealing with returns, color, and high-strength wash-up issues. ALAR. 708-479-6100. www.alarcorp.com/concrete Booth #327


Start production quickly

With a wide variety of mixers and control options, the Mark IV Skid Mount Batch Plant meets production rates of up to 25 yds. of concrete per hour. Three mixers provide capacities from 1/2 to 2 yds. per batch. Every Mark IV is custom-designed, and a three-day start-up and training gets production started quickly. Mixer Systems Inc. 800-756-4937. www.mixersystems.com Booth #839


Easy-to-use steel fibers

Dramix steel fibers absorb energy, improve crack control, and offer high-impact and fatigue strength in precast concrete. Add the fibers for ductile concrete with improved load capacity. Dramix fibers eliminate the need for mesh and expensive reinforced frames, reduce concrete consumption, and are quick and easy to use. Bekaert. 800-372-6940. www.bekaert.com Booth #1141




Heavy-duty hatch
