Injection Systems for Expansive Soils
Injection stabilization is a ground improvement technique that reduces the heave of in situ expansive clays, using the pressure injection of fluids. Purpose-built injection units drive injection pipes beneath existing structures or planned building pads. An aqueous solution of water, lime slurry, or potassium chloride is injected into the soil. The process results in reduced shrink/swell potential. The technique has been used to treat below planned and existing railways, roadways and buildings.
This technique is predominately provided by our Fort Worth, TX office, and is available throughout North America. Contact your local Hayward Baker office for more information.
