Why Choose USI Groups?

Wastewater Treatment and Water Treatment Plants both play a major role in health and safety of the population. USI partners with the both  to help with the needs of each of them to run 24 hours a day 7 days a week.

We have simple to use metal repair composites to rebuild shaft journals, keyways and bearing housings in-place allowing to avoid hazardous “hot work” and fire watches.  If you have leaking pipes, we have several systems like Stop-It or ResiMetal 103 Stick Epoxy and  Resimetal 108 Pipe Wrap to make quick repairs without cutting out and replacing pipe.

We understand the importance to have ceramic repair polymers and protective coatings with NSF-61 approvals to protect pumps, valves and piping from erosion, corrosion or chemical attack. Our SAR with HPL-1110 PW would be ideal for coating water treatment plant pump casings and impellers. While many Waste Water Treatment Plants will use Duromar HAR or ResiMetal 204HD or 204UHD for Grit Pumps or other abrasive environments such as the the inside of a pipe elbows processing affluent.

Partnering with waste water treatment facilities to refurbish secondary containments and clarifiers is one thing USI prides itself in.
