Alabama Compaction/Pressure Grouting Services
Proudly Servicing the Greater Alabama Area
Compaction grouting is the injection of a very stiff grout mixture that is pumped at very high pressure into specific areas in the soil. The expanding globular mass of grout then compacts the soil around each point of discharge. Compaction grouting is most commonly done in stages, working from the bottom on deep injection, up since this is the fastest method. However, top-down injection is often used on shallow injection applications as this method strengthens the upper layer of soil to help contain the pressures of the lower levels of compaction. Nichols / Grout Tech is your pressure grouting service provider in Alabama.
Compaction grouting techniques are used for pre-construction site improvement, to arrest foundation settlements, rectify sinkhole problems (Bulk-in-fill Grouting), to lift and to level slabs and foundations, but don’t require sandy soil conditions as in permeation techniques. The greatest use of pressure grouting is to improve geomaterials (soil and rock).
Compaction grouting is also used to correct faults in concrete and masonry structures.
