Protecting concrete usually means shielding it from the elements of nature or from harsh manmade chemicals. But it’s not just concrete that needs such protection. Corrugated metal pipe, steel surfaces, material hoppers, rail cars and masonry all can come in contact with corrosive or abrasive materials or harsh conditions.
The geotechnical needs of DOTs and other agencies responsible for roads and bridges are vast. Issues include: Culvert repair Soil stabilization Void filling Concrete slab lifting Sinkhole remediation Slope control Slough control in tunneling
Problem: Water activated chemical grouts and time sensitive epoxies can greatly shorten the life of the pump if not properly cleaned from the pump after each use. This can result in time consuming rebuilds of seals and packing’s as well as cleaning the internal components of the pump. Internal pressure control sensors can also be affected by deposits left behind from improper cleaning and can cause the pump to not shut off at the prescribed pressure.
Always use Prime Flex Eco-Flush. It’s formulation of powerful organic solvents and iso-neutralizers help insure any residual water activated materials left in the pump will be non-reactive.
STEP ONE: INITIAL PURGE
At this point the used Eco-Flush can be strained into a separate pail for use later.
This used Eco-Flush should be used for the “Initial Flush” sequence only. You should be able to get 3 – 5 reuses out of the Eco-Flush solvent. When the Eco-Flush is too dark to see through, dispose of per state, federal and local solvent disposal regulations.
STEP TWO: FINAL FLUSH
