A DEEPER DIVE

WHAT DEEP HORIZONS INJECTION GROUTING CAN FIX

Polymer Technologies has patented the System and Method for injecting dual or multiple component polyurethanes at depths far exceeding the industry’s 20-foot below-ground surface threshold whether in wet or dry conditions.
Our technology is designed to inject and mix these components in the ground, at the source problem, and from the bottom up to the surface thus allowing maximum vertical and horizontal migration to fill voids, seal leaking infrastructures, and compact weak or fractured soils, while stabilizing adjacent eroded soils.

GROUND-PENETRATING AMAZING TECHNOLOGY

Polymer Technologies has achieved remarkable milestones in injection technology. We have successfully injected dual-component polyurethane at depths exceeding 100 feet below the ground surface, even under challenging conditions with temperatures as high as 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Our cutting-edge technology employs aggressive, fast-reacting polyurethane, which has marked a significant advancement in the field.

What sets our technology apart is its unparalleled level of control. For the first time, we can meticulously monitor the injection process inch by inch or centimeter by centimeter, providing precise data on material distribution from the ground’s bottom to the surface or within the targeted injection range. This meticulous control ensures a seamless injection process, even as the casing is removed from the bottom up to the surface level.

Our unique approach involves combining reactive materials at the drill tip, guaranteeing that the chemical reaction occurs precisely at the source of the issue within the ground. This innovation enables the permanent sealing of leaking pipes or storage tanks, effectively addressing environmental concerns. Furthermore, it facilitates the stabilization of contaminated soils affected by erosion due to leaks, as well as the filling of voids with expansive foam while simultaneously achieving permanent liquefaction, thus delivering a reliable water-resistant solution.

In essence, Polymer Technologies’ injection technology has pushed the boundaries of what was once thought possible, offering unprecedented control, depth, and effectiveness in addressing a wide range of environmental and infrastructure challenges.

How We Achieve This

  • A channel is introduced vertically, horizontally, or angled to the problem area.

  • A guide tube is inserted through the channel.

  • The mixing device is fed through the guide tube and locked into the base.

  • Components are independently delivered to the mixing device allowing the reactive material to migrate vertically and horizontally.

  • The casing is lifted incrementally when injection pumps begin to labor.

  • The materials continue as the section by section of guide tube is removed until reaching the surface or desired lift is achieved.

  • This process is repeated every 10-25 feet (depending on soils conditions) until the desired outcome or area has been mitigated.

End Costly Infrastructure Repair Method Limitations

Deep Horizons can save you MONEY, TIME, and minimize DISRUPTION to your community by enabling the rapid and sustainable remediation of critical infrastructure issues that were previously unattainable. All of this is achieved at a fraction of the cost compared to traditional dig-and-replace methods.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What makes this so different from other current delivery or application methods?2022-12-27T12:28:30-05:00

Cementous grout can only be delivered at depths below 20′ and polyurethane (foam) can only be delivered up to 7-20′. Our delivery method ensures that we reach the desired depth and does not allow the material to harden before we reach the affected area. This technology can be used not only to fix sinkholes but also fix dams, levees, canals, embankments, landslides, and tunnels with fast-action polyurethanes.

How long does the process take?2022-12-27T12:29:00-05:00

Every project is different and depends on the soil condition. However, due to the fact that there is no demolition required, this method can be delivered very quickly. Also, because our product reacts (hardens) within seconds (even in the presence of water and other solutions) the area is ready for traffic by the time we leave the premises.

Is there a specific material needed to be injected?2022-12-27T12:29:37-05:00

Absolutely not. In fact with polyurethane injection delivery, the engineers have the freedom to select the product or combination desired, depending on the soil condition and properties of the material required.

Is this process environmentally friendly and safe?2022-12-27T12:30:13-05:00

Yes indeed! This system is less destructive and more environmentally friendly than any current method.

1. Current (fast reaction injection delivery used for less than 10′ deep) uses tubes that cannot be recovered and must be cut at the surface and left buried. With our delivery method, the tubes used for injection are recovered.

2. The use of mortars and grouting suspensions are dangerous to the environment because the toxic components can pollute the karst aquifer and cause long-lasting hazardous impacts on underground species.

SUCCESS STORY

Sarasota, Florida

Lift Station 87 is a project that was under construction that will eventually handle approximately 1/3 of the City of Sarasota’s waste water flow. Lift Station 87 was to replace Lift Station 7 that was in service at the time. The station forwards the effluent to the City’s waste water treatment facility. The influent line is a 36” diameter line that crosses Hudson Bayou. While testing the influent line, City staff discovered significant ground water intrusion into the line. The intrusion into the line was discovered to be through several holes, breaks, and joint failures. These intrusions will cause the sanitary system to work harder thereby reducing the useful life of the equipment and consuming additional energy for those efforts.

The first repair effort was to install a liner inside the pipe and impregnate the line with epoxy. While this type of repair has worked in similar type projects, it failed to stop the water intrusion.

The second repair effort to repair the pipe involved the injection of a two component, fast reaction chemical grout. The intent was to seal the pipe from the exterior, in-situ. Due to the methods used, previously referred to as ‘historic method’, the efforts failed. The reason for failure can be attributed to the depth of the pipe being greater than 20 feet.

The third repair effort that was considered was to excavate the pipe and replace it. This effort would have caused extensive disruptions to the surrounding infrastructure and to the local population. This option was estimated to add an additional $9-12 Million to an already over budget project, not to mention extending the completion time of the project approximately another year for the already severely delayed project.

Instead of opting to delay and add additional cost overruns to the project, the City took a chance to engage Polymer Technologies Worldwide, Inc.’s patented process. Not only did the efforts seal the pipe leaks, the foundation of the lift station structure was enhanced and further stabilized. The Polymer Technologies Worldwide materials were put into place while the construction of the lift station facility continued.

By the City utilizing these efforts, there was no additional time delay, there was no adverse impact to the motoring public, and there was not multimillion dollar cost overrun.
