When you begin a construction project that calls for drilled shafts or casing sizes, Pittsburgh Pipe provides all of the various types of casing and drilling shafts that strengthen your building’s foundation elements. Let’s look at the different types of casing and drill shafts to see how they work for different types of construction projects.
Applications for Different Types of Casing and Drilled Shafts
Construction contractors use steel casing to support and protect a project’s foundation elements and the cables and utility lines around them. However, certain casing and shafts work better for some projects than they do for others. Casing and shaft applications include:
- Caissons/Vertical Casing/Drilled Shaft Casing : This type of casing has three different names, but they all refer to the same thing. These casings support structures with large lateral and axial loads. Once these casings are put in place within their drilled shaft foundations, they’re surrounded by concrete. When you put caissons in your project’s foundation, you reduce the need for large amounts of piles and concrete caps, which reduces project costs.
- Split Steel Casing : Split casings or conduits protect cables and utility lines from the environments around them. These casings work best in projects that involve working near utility lines. For example, you can put them around utility lines that need protection because they can’t be relocated. You can also use split steel casings to protect cables and utility lines during road work or bridge expansion projects.
- End Seals and Casing Spacers : These pipe fittings protect your project’s casings from corrosion. End seals made of EPDM rubber protect the casings’ ends from leaking and corroding when they’re placed around water or sewer carrier pipe located beneath roads and highways. Casing spacers separate inner pipes within carrier pipe systems to reduce corrosion and damage.
Pittsburgh Pipe manufactures, fabricates, and distributes all these casings and fittings, along with many other types of casings, fittings, and pipes. Our in-house manufacturing and fabrication services mean we can offer the casings and piping you need as quickly and effectively as possible.
