Pit Flooding Protection

before and after of pit flooding protection
Many industries use below ground pits to house key assets. Examples of these include gas regulation or electrical transmission equipment. Since these pits are below ground, they are prone to flooding. The most common locations for water inflow are failed seals surrounding pipe or conduit wall penetrations, damaged sections of pit wall, and rainfall through poorly sealed pit lids.

Kinectrics has developed a water blocking system that reduces the amount of water entering the pit and reduces maintenance costs for the operator. Firstly, penetration seals are reinforced using a special polymer arrangement. Secondly, the walls are sealed with a proprietary waterproof polymer coating that becomes waterproof. Uniquely this coating can be applied to damp and friable surfaces. Kinectrics is seeking to partner with companies where this water protection service can be offered.​
