Granted by the USPTO, this patent covers the in-place coating of metallic pipes, including lead, copper, and steel pipes, curing the resin in at least one hour. ePIPE in-place lining technology reduces lead leaching from lead pipes and other in-line lead contributors, such as lead solder from leaching into the drinking water supply. Using the ePIPE process, lead levels are reduced to well below the World Health Organization's (WHO) cut-of guide- lines for lead, at 10 ug/l (10 ppb). Te U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) cut-of levels for lead, at 15 ug/l (15 ppb), are 50 percent higher than recommended by the World Health Organization. Te ePIPE technology is completed to pipes " in-place," reduc- ing the need for excessive digging or tearing up roads or buildings' founda- tions or walls. ePIPE is a long-term solution that does not require the addition of expensive and questionable water treatment chemicals.

(EDCO) 16" (40.6 cm) hand-held saw gives this already versatile tool "walk-behind saw" capability. On its own, the EDCO hand-held saw is ideal for produc- tion cutting of concrete, masonry, asphalt, stone, and metal. Te saw has fush-cutting capabilities and creates window and door openings. Connecting it to the new Kaddy turns the hand-held into a walk-behind saw, capable of short-run sawing applications, like cutting contraction joints. Operators can now comfortably stand up while cutting horizontal lines using the hand-held saw. Rental store owners can take advantage of purchasing one saw for two diferent kinds of common rental opportunities.
