Pipeline Fills

WHAT IS A PIPELINE FILL?

Various types of pipeline construction create voids that requiring filling.  Elastizell PS (Pipeline Solutions) provides an economical method for filling tunnel voids, abandoned pipelines and sliplined pipe annular spaces.

To avoid future liabilities due to cave-ins and collapses, pipeline or tank abandonments need to be completely filled.  Because the original design capacity of the structure needs to be contained, the lightweight characteristics of Elastizell PS make it an ideal product.

Some benefits of using Elastizell PS for Pipeline Fills:

  • Elastizell EF is pumped into place to fill the entire void.
  • Since no workers are in the excavation, it is a safer method for filling voids.
  • The speed of installation results in this being an economical and competitive method of filling voids.
  • The high fluidity of Elastizell PS completely fills the void.  Elastizell EF has demonstrated flowability of up to 600 feet and the ability to be pumped thousands of feet.
  • The ability to vary the density and resulting strengths of Elastizell PS enhances its use in numerous applications.
  • Elastizell PS will not overload poor soils and is stronger than other backfill materials.

Annular Fills

An annular space is a ring-shaped space located between two circular objects, such as two pipes.

In certain circumstances, a pipeline may become damaged or faulty and the need for digging a new trench is not practical.   The existing pipe may then become a host for a new pipe inserted through it.   The space between the new and the old pipe is annular space.

Annular spaces can be piped full of Elastizell PS (Pipeline Solutions) which is flexible and can be piped long distances due to its lightweight and fluid characteristics.   The resulting permanent fill will completely support the new pipeline and protect it against environmental weathering and other destruction.

Some benefits of using Elastizell PS for Annular Fills:

  • The stability of Elastizell PS assures a consistent material meeting the design criteria.
  • Low density Elastizell PS permits the installation in one lift.  This reduces the chances of floating the carrier pipe.  Precautions preventing carrier pipe buoyancy should be considered.
  • The flowability of Elastizell PS permits pumping at low pressures, reducing the risk of damage to the carrier pipe which may occur with heavier and less flowable grouts.
  • Elastizell PS is an ideal material for grouting the annular space in sliplined or casing & carrier sewer pipeline applications because of its stability, low density, and flowability.
