Steel Pipe Piling Services
Steel pipe is used for a variety of types of pipe pilings. Pipe pile is used in construction to transfer the structural load deep into the foundation soil or rock deep below the surface. The steel pipe piles are driven below the earth using a pile driver. The size, strength and number of steel pipe piles needed will vary according to soil type for each job.
Alpha Pipe offers a complete line of steel pipe piling and related services: Pile points attached- End Plates attached – Fabricated to length pipe piles – Double jointing – Pipe coatings – Cutting & beveling.
Pipe Piling specifications available include ASTM A252 Grades 2 & 3, A500 Gr B/C, used steel pipe, reconditioned and high strength steel pipe for use in the following applications: Anchor Pile – Bearing Pile – Bridge Pile – Building Pile – Foundation Pile – Marine and Dock Pile – Micro Pile – Caissons – Screw Pile – Temporary Structures – Trestle/False Work.
Pipe Piling is used to create a stable support for bridges. The steel pipe is driven into the ground either by vibration or hammer driven machines. The depth and number of steel pipe piles used is pre-engineered according to the structure, the soil conditions, the water conditions and the bedrock. Often the installed steel pipe pile is then filled with concrete to complete the process. Alpha Pipe sells new steel pipe, used steel pipe and surplus steel pipe for this type of project.
Building and Foundation Pile
This type of pipe pile is used to provide a stable foundation for buildings, bridges and other structures. It is driven or vibrated into the ground to bed rock and often it is then filled with concrete. Once in place the structure can be built on top of the pipe piles to prevent its movement. Alpha Pipe supplies new steel pipe, used steel pipe and surplus steel pipe to fill these type of project requirements.
Marine and Dock Pile
This is the steel pipe that you see supporting docks. This steel pipe piling is driven deep into the water to provide a stable foundation for marinas and docks in rivers, lakes, and near oceans. Marine Pile and Dock Pile can both be fabricated from new steel pipe, used steel pipe or surplus steel pipe.
Micro Pile/Screw Pile/Anchor Pile
These foundation pipe piles are used to stablilize existing structions that have shifted or cracked or that have been damaged by sinking, flooding or earthquakes. Anchor Piles work and look similar to a cork screw and are screwed into the soil in the area of the structure to be repaired and then jack-up bracing can be installed to complete the project and provide the maximum support. These types of pipe piles can also be used to stabilize soil on steep hillsides to prevent erosion, slides and cave-ins. Alpha Pipe supplies new pipe, used pipe and surplus steel pipe for these types of applications.
Trestle/False Work/Temporary Structures
Temporary trestles, also know to may as falsework or temporary structures are predominantly used in the construction and repair of bridges. The structures, many times constructed of steel pipe, are temporarily erected next to the bridge being repaired or constructed and are used to reinforce the structure as it is being repaired or constructed. It is also common for the construction equipment to be housed on these structures. Alpha Pipe sells new pipe, used pipe and surplus steel pipe for temporary trestle and falsework projects. Alpha Pipe also will buy-back this material from you at the end of your project.
