… reinforced concrete pipe Automated and fully robotic concrete pipe plants, the Quality Cast certification program, a culture of plant safety, and continuous technical training combine to assure owners, contractors, specifiers and designers that they are working with a modern material and a variety of pipe and precast box products that will perform for the design life of projects. To strengthen the performance expectations of pipelines and culverts, the concrete pipe industry has extended its education about plants and products to the people who inspect the structures assembled by contractors. The American Concrete Pipe Association (ACPA) has post installation inspection (PII) courses that address common characteristics of a high performance pipe that might be mistaken as a deficiency by an inspector unfamiliar with pipe design, production and in-plant testing.
