HydroHelicalTM

The HydroHelical is a segmental sub-horizontal displacement drain system for use behind retaining walls and slope stabilization new construction and retrofit applications. It provides a quick and effective means of solving hydrostatic pressure relief and stability for soil embankments and behind earth retention structures.

Product Details

Perforated pipe sections are coupled with a special designed open annulus coupling capable of receiving a well screen sized for a particular application while resisting the torque necessary for proper installation. Each section is perforated to allow the maximum water intake while maintaining the structural integrity of the system during installation and its performance.

The strength of the soil and/or minimum depth are determining factors for the drain system to reach its specified position within the soil matrix. Currently, the HydroHelical product is manufactured in 7 foot lengths to accommodate LTL shipping standards.

Tension Bolt AdapterTM

The Tension Bolt Adapter provides a quick and easy means of mechanical termination of a structural plate to a pipe, pipe pile or helical anchor thus eliminating the need for drilling bolt holes or welding.

Product Details

The TBA (Tension Bolt Adapter) is an internal bore rotational rod tensioning device when in combination with a threaded bar is inserted within the end of a pipe section over a bolt connection, rotated, and locked into place with a specified termination. The tension load is transferred from the bolt locked with the grasp of the Tension Bolt Adapter through a threaded bar and to a specified termination element.

General Applications

The GEOBASICS Tension Bolt Adapter is used inside the bore of a pipe, pile or tube to provide a tensioning mechanism for applying a tension capacity to a termination device located at the end and outside of the cylindrical structure.

Pipe and Tube

  • Connectors

Pipe Piles and Helical Piles

  • Plate Terminations for New Construction

  • Tension/Compression Applications

  • Elevated Walkway Connections

  • Solar Panel Fit Up

Advantages

  • Easy installation mechanical connection

  • Field settable and adjustable

  • Durable component

  • Compatible with most helical pile foundation systems

  • NO WELDING, DRILLING OR OTHER EXTERNAL EQUIPMENT REQUIRED FOR INSTALLATION
