26 May 2017
Aegion Corporation (Aegion), incorporated on August 17, 2011, is engaged in providing infrastructure protection and maintenance. The Company operates through three segments: Infrastructure Solutions, Corrosion Protection and Energy Services. The Company offers service solutions, including rehabilitation of water and wastewater pipelines with Insituform cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) products; fusible polyvinyl chloride products for rehabilitation; fiber reinforced polymer systems for rehabilitation and strengthening; cathodic protection for corrosion engineering control and infrastructure rehabilitation; pipe coatings for corrosion control and prevention; high density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe lining for corrosion control, abrasion protection and pipeline rehabilitation, and construction and maintenance of oil and gas facilities.
The Company's Insituform CIPP Process for the rehabilitation of sewers, pipelines and other conduits utilizes a custom-manufactured tube, or liner, made of synthetic fiber. After the tube is saturated (impregnated) with a thermosetting resin mixture, it is installed in the host pipe by various processes, and the resin is then cured, by heat using hot water or steam, forming a rigid pipe within a pipe. Its iPlus Infusion Process is a trenchless method used for the rehabilitation of small-diameter sewer pipelines, whereby a felt liner is continuously impregnated with liquid, thermosetting resin through a process, after which the liner is pulled into the host pipe, inflated with air and cured with steam. Its iPlus Composite Process is a trenchless method used for the rehabilitation of large-diameter sewer pipelines, where the felt liner is reinforced with carbon or glass fiber, impregnated with liquid, thermosetting resin, inverted into place and cured with hot water or steam. Its InsituMain System is a cured-in-place pipe solution for pressure pipes. The InsituMain System is for water mains and force mains over 54-inches in diameter. Its InsituGuard, InsituFlex and InsituFold processes are methods of rehabilitating transmission and distribution water mains using HDPE liners. Inserted into an existing pipeline by the Company's installation processes, the liners are continuous and installed tightly against the inner wall of the host pipe, thereby isolating the flow stream from the host pipe wall and eliminating internal corrosion.
The factory-folded C shape liner is winched into the host pipe from a reel and reverted with air and steam. Its Insituform RPP process is a trenchless technology used for the rehabilitation of sewer force mains and industrial pressure pipelines. The felt tube is reinforced with glass and impregnated with liquid, thermosetting resin, after which it is inverted with water and cured with hot water to form a structural, jointless pipe within the host pipe. Its Insituform PPL process is a trenchless technology that is used for the rehabilitation of drinking water and industrial pressure pipelines. A glass-reinforced liner is impregnated with an epoxy or vinyl ester resin, inverted with water and cured with hot water to form a jointless pipe lining within the host pipe. Its Sealing Method process is a method for providing re-connection to a ferrule of a service line from within the bore of a lined host pipe. Its UV/Glass Lining System is a cured in place pipe solution for small- to medium-diameter pipes utilizing a glass fiber tube that is impregnated with a resin sensitive to ultraviolet light or steam curing. Its Fusible PVC technology contains polyvinyl chloride (PVC) formulation that, when combined with its patented fusion process, results in a monolithic, fully-restrained, gasket-free, leak-free piping system. Fusible PVC pipe products include, Fusible C-900, Fusible C-905 and FPVC. Its ServiceGuard Composite Pipe product combines the performance benefits of chlorinated polyvinyl chloride (CPVC) with the strength and durability of an aluminum core to offer the ultimate water service line pipe.
The Company's Fibrwrap and Tyfo processes are methods applying high strength fiber fabric to strengthen structures and the connections between structural components, thereby strengthening, repairing and restoring masonry, concrete, steel and wooden structures. The Fibrwrap and Tyfo products are construction and engineering materials comprising hybrid fiber/epoxy composites used for retrofitting or repairing structures. Its FibrBundle process relates to devices, systems and methods for reinforcing pipes and other structures. The FibrBundle products are non-metal building materials, namely, tows of carbon fibers for strengthening bridges, buildings and other structures. The Company's FibrPipeWrap product and process relates to the construction and civil engineering material in the nature of hybrid fiber/epoxy composites used for retrofitting or repairing structures.
The Company's sewer pipeline rehabilitation activities are conducted principally through installation and other construction operations performed directly by its subsidiaries. It utilizes multifunctional robotic devices developed by a French subsidiary in connection with the inspection and repair of pipelines. It also maintains a manufacturing facility in Wellingborough, the United Kingdom to support its international operations and through which it sells liners to third parties. The Company's infrastructure rehabilitation operations also utilize fiber-reinforced polymer (FRP) to rehabilitate and strengthen pipelines, buildings, bridges, tunnels, industrial developments and waterfront structures throughout the United States and Canada through Fibrwrap Construction Services and in its Asian markets through its subsidiaries and through its joint ventures in Borneo, Korea and Indonesia. Through Fyfe Co. (Fyfe), it designs and manufactures the FRP composite systems used in these applications. Its Fyfe entities located in Singapore, Japan, Malaysia and Hong Kong and its Fyfe joint ventures in Borneo, Korea and Indonesia, provide product and engineering services throughout Asia-Pacific.
