Capital weekend

While London whiles away the weekends, Camfaud is at work repairing the capital’s infrastructure.

Our most recent job involved pumping rapid setting concrete underground to form a tunnel trackbed. Our “troglodyte team” manned the pumps (and the pipelines!) round the clock to enable the concrete to be placed as soon as the track was aligned and the slab ready to be poured.

It is usual, when pumping long pipelines, to use 125mm pipeline. However, for this contract, 100mm pipeline was preferred in order to increase the velocity of the material through the line and thus minimise the chance of the rapid setting mix going off in the pipes.
