»3 Steps of Treatment
Furnishing the reagent:
reagent, usually powdered Quicklime or Cement, arrives at the job site
in pneumatic trucks. With the use of on-board blowers, the pneumatic
truck transfers the reagent into a spreader truck. Approximately 1 hour
is required to load 26 tons of material into the spreader truck.
Spreading the reagent:
spreader truck spreads the reagent at the appropriate mix design
percentage. The spreader truck utilizes an on-board computer and radar
to precisely control the spread rate.
mixer and water truck are connected allowing for an integrated system
where water is injected directly into the mixing chamber. The amount of
water is controlled by the operator with the help of an on-board
computer. The mix can be as deep as 18" per lift. After initial
hydration, a second mix, or re-mix is performed allowing for final
adjustments in the water content and further breakdown of soil
compaction, in lifts up to 18", is achieved with specialized equipment.
An open ring design and heavy weight allows for this single lift
