Driver Pipeline – DT3 Abandonment
- Irving, TX
The use of low-density cellular concrete (LDCC) ensures the pipe’s long-term stability and minimizes the potential for expensive damage to surrounding areas. The two most essential elements of this project were ensuring quality control of the LDCC throughout the mixing and application process and selecting an LDCC product that would facilitate long-distance pumping into this 22,953 linear foot pipeline. Flexibility and speed were non-negotiable necessities.
Given these considerations, the CellFill team chose to use AERLITE-iX a non-pervious LDCC manufactured by Aerix Industries. Over the space of ten days, the crew pumped 2,676 cubic yards of LDCC into the pipeline in eight segments, the longest of which was 5,381 linear feet.
