Reducing vibration damage in underground pipelines
Vibrations from construction activities and traffic loading can have a detrimental effect on pipelines, reducing service life and increasing maintenance costs. kwik-ZIP has designed a spacer system that can help reduce the impact of these damaging vibrations.
Micropiles are ideal for projects in urban areas as they require equipment with smaller footprints during installation, can support extremely heavy loads, and can be installed where there are difficult ground conditions that may not usually be appropriate for construction. To support the longevity and effectiveness of micropiles, centralisers are used to help establish even grout coverage during installation.
How contractors can benefit from WSAA approved spacers
Choosing the correct spacer can impact on the long-term success of a pipeline, so to help contractors choose the most suitable spacer WSAA created a product specification. Here, we look at the benefits of using a WSAA approved spacer.
