Passing Vacuum Testing In TN

We recently completed a product demonstration for a customer in Tennessee. The customer first learned about Cretex Specialty Products at the 2021 Utility Expo, which took place in Louisville, KY.

The customer was facing issues trying to match the slope of the road with concrete rings. This tends to be a common issue customers face with concrete rings. In addition, this particular utility had a requirement of passing vacuum testing, and they weren’t.

After a few discussions, we set-up a product demonstration of our PRO-RING system. Our PRO-RING system includes grade rings, finish rings and angle rings, which means we are able to match the slope of the road, one of the customer’s primary challenges. And, because the PRO-RINGs nest together, they offer a precision fit and meet, typically exceed, the requirements of ASTM C1244 (vacuum testing).

As a result of the demo, the utility was now able to match the grade of the road, and passed vacuum testing with ease. Since that initial demo, they have approved the PRO-RING to be utilized throughout the remainder of the project, and in future projects.
