Chemical Grouting and Pipe Sealing Boynton Beach
Shenandoah is a company specializing in chemical grouting and pipe sealing in Boynton Beach to address issues related to ground water infiltration in underground systems such as sewer lines, manholes, and culverts. Chemical grouting is a procedure used to seal pipe joints, sewer connections, and manholes, which helps reduce or eliminate water infiltration. This process can provide a long-lasting solution to these issues and is considered a permanent repair method.
Additionally, one of the advantages of chemical grouting is its trenchless nature. This means that it doesn’t require extensive digging or excavation of damaged pipes. Not only does this feature save both time and money, it is also less disruptive to the surrounding environment.
It’s important to note that chemical grouting requires specialized knowledge and equipment to ensure proper installation and effectiveness. If you’re facing problems related to ground water infiltration in your sewer systems or underground infrastructure, reach out to our experts at Shenandoah.
The first trenchless pipeline rehabilitation process was chemical grouting. When properly applied, it is still the best cure for infiltration of groundwater
How Does Chemical Grouting & Pipe Sealing Work?
Chemical grouting works best when the pipe to be repaired is still structurally sound. Over time pipes can sag, joints can become separated and cracks can develop allowing intrusion into the pipe. After first inspecting the pipe with robotic video camera technology if it’s determined the pipe is structurally sound, the pipe will be cleaned and prepared using inflatable plugs placed in the damaged areas of the pipe. Upon inflation, grout is then injected into the separated joints or cracks and the surrounding soil. This special polyurethane grout only takes about 25 minutes to densify, and expand into the cracks, voids, and adjacent soil, effectively sealing the pipe. Even in instances where it’s determined it best to re-line a section of pipe, chemical grouting will still be used prior to re-lining. This prevents any ground water from seeping into the pipe and getting between the pipe and the liner.
Examples of Repair Applications for Chemical Grouting
Ideal for manhole repairing, chemical grouting can be applied to the damaged areas of a manhole to prevent water intrusion. After this process has sealed the manhole walls, a fresh coating can be applied
Joint Sealing – Prior to re-lining of pipe, chemical grouting seals the joints between pipes and the soil around them
Inflow and Infiltration Mitigation
Soil Stabilization and Densification
Chemical Grouting of Laterals. This saves money and avoids re-piping
