Stabilization design of a pipeline is based on the shear strength of the soil and/or on the over-burden pressure of the soil on the anchor. These CHANCE Screw Anchors do not require the physical weight of the pipe or soil to overcome the buoyancy of the pipe in the water or mud.
Cost savings are significant not only in the material but also in the installation and transportation costs. One anchor set which weighs approximately 250 pounds can replace a 100,000 pounds of concrete on a section of the pipeline.
If you have an application, let our engineers and associates estimate the cost savings inherent in this system. We will need the pipe size, type of pipe, wall thickness, coating, and soil information, including the location of the water table.
