NCS Fluid Handling Systems Well-point dewatering
We are on a roll with these pictures or projects and in keeping with the theme another great couple photos have come in.
While driving to a wellpoint dewatering project in the Yukon Adam Gilbert was able to capture a unique picture that is simply breath taking.
While well-pointing is used to dewater during construction activities such as pipeline installation or integrity digs, an excavation also requires soil stabilization in soils with low permeability with some silts or sandy silts. Well-point dewatering also can be incorporated into applications where shoring or sheet piles are used to reduce hydraulic ground pressure. Dewatering and stabilization are achieved by using Vacuum, generated by pumps in most cases and simply put the vacuum generated increases the hydraulic gradient casing flow to the well point / header and is useful to drawdown more than 18 to 25 feet of ground water in low permeable soils. But other than having an excavation with water in it why does NCS Fluid Handling Systems design, engineering and technicians focus on all the ground and site-specific conditions to stabilize soil and deliver a dry excavation. NCS Fluid Systems engineers may also recommend the use of deep well submersible pumps and to understand the proper application call NCS Fluid Handling Systems Innovation and Design center in Langley BC or now the live demonstration and training site at the new shop in Nisku Alberta.
