Smart, Speedy Pipeline Installation Using Advanced Spray Foam Technology
Thursday, October 16th, 2014 by Thrasher
Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) is an amazing material with applications across numerous industries, including pipeline installation.
SPF can be especially useful when pipeline trenching work takes place in rocky, uneven or steeply inclined terrain. When these conditions are encountered, some sort of pipeline trench support is required.
Sandbags have traditionally been used to construct trench breakers, but our spray foam crew can do this work faster, more affordably and with superior results.
Advantages for pipeline support and other applications
- Fast. There's no faster way to install trench breakers.
- Affordable. Lower installed cost than sandbag construction.
- Non-damaging. Spray foam expands to fill voids around exposed pipe, providing a cushioning effect.
- Long lasting. Cured SPF is stable, strong and waterproof.
- Versatile. SPF application can also be used as a rock shield, pipeline pillow support & pipe insulation.
Sticky Strong, Light, and Durable
The 2-part foam used in geotechnical applications has unique characteristics that provide important advantages in trench breaker construction. When the SPF resin and catalyst compounds are mixed at the application nozzle, the resulting chemical reaction turns the liquids into expanding foam with excellent adhesive qualities. The foam penetrates into loose soil and bonds to the sides of the trench excavation.
The foam expands, hardens and cures within minutes, making it possible to complete each trench breaker in a fraction of the time that a larger crew would require to build with sandbags. The cured SPF support is inert, environmentally safe, and immune to moisture damage.
