Soil Mixing Equipment
Soil mixing equipment is used to create stabilized columns which, when joined together, can serve as barriers to groundwater flow, foundation support elements, fixation of hazardous wastes underground and numerous other purposes. The principals of Geo-Solutions have been involved in the development of soil mixing equipment since the first significant US projects, carried out in the mid 1980's
Special Soil Mixing Attachments
These specialized bits are drilled into the ground as a liquid grout is pumped in to assist with the drilling process. As the bit is withdrawn, it continues to spin, mixing the soil and reagent into a homogeneous mass. The diameters of the columns formed can vary from 3-10 ft (1-3 m)
Soil Mixing Rig
Recently, soil mixing has been done more and more by purpose-built machinery such as the rig seen here. On this site in Nyack NY, coal tar wastes from a former Manufactured Gas Plant (MGP) Site were treated by turning the entire site into a stabilized treated block of soil.
Soil Mixing Equipment for Treating Contaminated Soils
Soil Mixing Equipment for Treating Contaminated Soils: On this site near Vint Hill, VA in situ chemical reduction (ISCR) was installed with Geo-Solutions equipment. Proprietary chemical and biological treatments eventually rendered the soils non-toxic.
Geo-Solutions Special Purpose Rig
On this site in Crescent Ridge IL, approximately 20 wind turbine generator foundations had their soft foundations stiffened up using soil mixing. Again the special purpose rig was used. This rig has benefits over traditional crane-mounted units in that down pressure can be applied and they are much easier to mobilize and set up.
Geo-Solutions Backhoe Operated Soil Stabilizers
On this site in Northern, PA, Geo-Solutions used an excavator attachment to mix soils beneath the location of a future crude oil storage tank. The BOSS systems are a cost effective means of completing shallow soil mixing applications.
When combined with Geo-Solutions' accurate and productive mixing plants, the soil mixing rigs shown here can create very accurate and homogeneous blended columns of soil underground.
