Low Pressure Injection Techniques
Since the low pressure injection techniques that utilize ‘glue on’ surface ports are more commonly known, the following introduction focuses on the high pressure injection in conjunction with mechanical packers. Mechanical packers eliminate many problems of the surface ports including bond failure at pressures above 300 psi and inaccessibility in wet, and water pressured areas.
High pressure injection through mechanical packers opens a new dimension of possibilities to solve joint and crack related problems. Besides crack injection it is also possible to inject polyurethane grout to the back side of a wall into the soil thus creating a grout curtain. This procedure is necessary when well defined cracks, joints or openings of any kind cannot be detected but moisture infiltration is evident.
Another option is injection of the void between the structure and an existing membrane that had initially been installed to prevent water leaks, but failed. Membrane failure is a common cause of below grade water leaks. To the dismay of any engineer, it often occurs on brand-new buildings. The HomeSpec High Pressure Injection System has been proven to be a superior system in correcting those failures with ease by injecting from the negative side. No digging is necessary.
Voids in the structure can be sealed, defective membranes can be fixed and even water pockets behind the structure can be effectively filled to minimize hydrostatic pressure.
The injected soil will be compacted and stabilized thus reducing water accumulation behind the structure and shifting of loose soil. Extensive soil injection can prevent landslides and therefore minimize stress on the foundation. The number of practical methods that have been established over the years is endless. The Pressure Injection System has been proven to be extremely versatile, reliable and economical in resolving water related and structural problems.
Our crack injection process:
The High Pressure Injection System can be used for injecting cracks, cold joints, expansion joints and for soil stabilization. The system can be used to stop gushing water, to seal minor seepage, to regain structural integrity and to waterproof and strengthen almost any concrete or masonry structure from the positive or negative side, below grade, above grade and under water. This versatile system is used to solve problems in small residential objects as well as problems in major commercial structures. The system includes epoxy injection techniques as well as polyurethane injection techniques.
