O-ring gasketed pipe being lowered into the trench

Sanitary Systems & Wastewater Treatment

Many Municipalities across North America are replacing their aging combined sewers with new systems that separate wastewater and stormwater, dramatically reducing their wastewater treatment load and protecting the environment from CSOs (combined sewer overflows). CSOs come about when the wastewater treatment plant is overloaded by heavy rain due to combined sanitary and storm systems or sanitary systems that allow infiltration into the sanitary lines due to poor quality joints or poor manhole-to-pipe connections.  These systems must be watertight to meet current environmental specifications and standards such as ASTM C361 or CSA A257.3. And that’s where Hamilton Kent enters the picture.

Gaskets and Connectors

Hamilton Kent offers gasket and connector solutions for all types of pipe and pipe-to-manhole connections – Concrete Pipe & manhole, HDPE, PP, PVC, and PVCo.  Our products are designed to exceed the relevant specifications and meet the highest environmental standards. Our products have been designed with the intent to reduce field problems or leaks and speed up open trench installation.

Couplings – Straub Couplings

A wide selection of restraint and flexible couplings can be used for wastewater treatment connections, all types of repairs, and small to large pipes above and below ground. Couplings are used in wastewater treatment applications for joining pipes of dissimilar materials.  Straub couplings make a perfect connection, specially designed for this application. Tough, resilient and long-lasting, Straub couplings make critical connections in chambers and treatment plants.
