This method employs a stiff, low slump,
grout. 1” to 4” slump is
usual. Sam Cal has the latest
pumping equipment for grout mixture placement, and modern mixing equipment
insures a consistent product. With
high-pressure and stiff-grout mix, SAM CAL has been very successful in
controlling the results. Experienced
crews and attention to detail are SAM CAL hallmarks.
Given the proper soil conditions, the results can be very
SAM CAL has retained the equipment and crew
expertise to continue the use of this “older” grouting method. Given open, loose, non-compressible soil conditions, we feel
this method deserves careful consideration.
By filing voids or open conditions, increased density can be
achieved with low-pressure application.
High slump mix (4” – 8”) is typical, with very high cement
ratios. Better re-leveling
control is another benefit of the intrusion method.
Bank stabilization for open cuts (in loose,
sandy conditions) is an ideal venue for pre-excavation Chemical Grouting
application. “Loose: ground
conditions are susceptible to “running” during the placement of bank
support systems (piling, lagging tunnel lining, etc.)
SAM CAL has addressed this problem with Chemical Grouting since the
Water intrusion can be corrected with the
application of chemical grouts in a variety of buildings and structures,
including basement storage areas, medical record spaces, food service
kitchens, telephone vaults, parking structures and other occupied spaces.
SAM CAL Corporation has th equipment and expertise to place
Chemical Grout to the outside of the wall “where we can do some good.”
Parking Structures 45’ below grade have been corrected, though
this method is applicable to smaller jobs, as well.
WE RELY ON RESULTS
Our staff of field personnel, Construction
Engineers and Superintendents are highly experienced, exhibiting a strong
technical background and utilization of the most advanced equipment
available. This combination
of knowledgeable staff and modern, well-maintained machinery enables SAM
CAL to develop the best solutions to geotechnical and geological problems.
Having treated almost every soil condition,
seepage problem and concrete defect, we can say with certainty that there
is no single product of procedure suitable for every case.
The common denominator is the need to find the cause and work out
the best material and pumping method for each individual case.
When you have a need for state-of-the-art
grouting technology, call SAM CAL. You
will find that we are responsive, helpful and proud of our quality work.
SAM CAL Corporation is a contractor
specializing in the application of state-of-the-art grouting technology to
construction operations and engineering projects.
We maintain an impressive array of grouting equipment, a
substantial inventory of high tech grouting products and a highly
experienced staff of technical and construction personnel.
Since 1963, we have provided our clients
with the latest and most innovative grouting technologies.
Our commitment to providing clients with cost-effective solutions
(while maintaining highest standards) has earned SAM CAL a reputation for
quality service throughout Nevada, Arizona and California.
We maintain this standard of quality by attending seminars and
technical presentations to keep pace with technology.
The symptoms of settlement problems are
usually obvious: cracks and door and frame misalignment. The causes are usually more difficult to detect.
SAM CAL has people with the owner and their geotechnical
consultants to determine the cause, then solve the problem.
SAM CAL realizes that total cost is not the
only concern. We work diligently to minimize building occupant disruption,
distress to surrounding improvements and time of disruption.
