Pipe Support

Pipeline Screw Anchors are ground anchors that Colorado contractors, and builders throughout the Midwest utilize for stabilization of oil, gas, and other pipelines. Buoyancy of pipelines is a major concern in the design and construction of all pipelines. In water or mud, an empty pipeline with a diameter greater than 12 inches can push itself to the surface if it has not been anchored. Economics and engineering evaluations show that a screw anchor is the predictable, measurable, and economical means for pipeline stabilization.

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. As a ground 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 that weighs approximately 250 pounds can replace 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 – giving us the ability to set up the proper pipe support, ground or chance helical anchors to stabilize the area.
