Pipe foundation and mechanical protection

In order to guarantee that a sub-surface pipeline permanently fulfils its function, it must be protected from damage and from settlements of low-bearing-capacity subgrades. Optimum solution in this respect can be provided by TenCate reinforcement products to minimize settlements and TenCate nonwovens for protection purposes.

Products used:

Protection

  • TenCate Polyfelt® P
  • TenCate Polyfelt® TS

Reinforcement

  • TenCate Miragrid™ GX
  • TenCate Polyfelt Rock® PEC
  • TenCate Polyfelt Geolon® PET

Separation

  • TenCate Polyfelt® TS


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Buoyancy protection

In order to guarantee that a pipeline remains stable under buoyancy, it must be secured against such forces and against damage during installation. Optimum solution in this respect can be provided by TenCate Polyfelt Rock to take up tensile forces, combined with TenCate Polyfelt nonwovens to protect the pipeline from damage.

Products used:

Reinforcement

  • TenCate Miragrid™  GX
  • TenCate Polyfelt Rock® PEC
  • TenCate Polyfelt Geolon® PET

Protection

  • TenCate Polyfelt® P
  • TenCate Polyfelt® TS


 

 

 

 






Installation under water

In order to guarantee that a pipeline remains stable under buoyancy and under settlements of the subgrade, it must be secured against any harmful forces occurring in the subgrade. Optimum solution in this respect can be provided by TenCate Polyfelt Rock to stabilise the subgrade, combined with TenCate Polyfelt nonwovens to provide buoyancy protection.

Products used:

Reinforcement

  • TenCate Polyfelt Rock® PEC
  • TenCate Polyfelt® TS
  • TenCate Polyfelt Geolon® PP

Pillow foundation

The settlement of pipeline foundations should be limited to a minimum. TenCate reinforcement products are successfully used for pillow foundations over low-bearing-capacity subgrades.

Products used:

Reinforcement

  • TenCate Polyfelt Rock® PEC
  • TenCate Miragrid™ GX
  • TenCate Polyfelt Geolon® PET
