EXTRUSION WELDS—THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY
Like the geosynthetics industry, huge advancements have been realized in the extrusion fillet process since it’s inception. However, the extrusion fillet process remains acknowledged among industry professionals as an inferior weld when compared to the thermal fusion method.
COVERING YOUR ASSETS—CONSTRUCTION QUALITY ASSURANCE
Containment projects are important corporate assets that ensure the company’s ability to generate cash flow. As such, asset procurement and management are vital to ensuring and improving the asset’s Return-on- Investment (ROI).
THE POSSIBILITY OF ZERO LEAKS
Session Chair: Glen Toepfer, CQA Solutions, Ltd. We have all heard that zero leak liner systems are not possible in the real world and we should target Acceptable Action Leakage Rates (ALR). Well, don’t tell this is to the Palo Verde Nuclear Generation Station (PVNGS).
