Soil mixing system

Soil mixing is used when soil needs to be solidified. A cement suspension is added and simultaneously mixed with the soil. When the mixing equipment is removed from the soil, it further mixes the suspension with the soil material.

How does soil mixing work?

Before the soil mixing process can be initiated, the subsoil needs to be examined carefully. The soil geology needs to be easily penetrated by the suspension. If this prerequisite is given, the cement suspension is pressed into the soil. This is done through an internal pipe via nozzles on the mixing equipment up until the required depth.

The soil mixing equipment paddles ensure thorough mixing of the soil with the cement suspension. After reaching the final depth, the mixing equipment is pulled back whilst pressing in further bonding agent. Homogenously mixed soil columns are produced by changing the direction of rotation and alternate raising and lowering.

When is soilmixing used?

One of the biggest advantages of soilmixing is that it is mostly free of vibration and noise. This means it can also be used in densely populated areas. Apart from improving or solidifying soil conditions the soil mix system can also be used for building pit circumvallation and trench shoring.

There are also economic benefits from using soil mixing. As the soil material is used for the consolidation of the soil, it does not need to be disposed of. Furthermore, the amount of material required for the consolidation is fairly low, only the suspension mix is used.

What kind of soil mixing tools and equipment are used?

The high-quality soil mixing head is the central element of the process. EMDE supplies single, twin or triple tools specially adapted to your drives and requirements. We also offer you a rotary drilling rig with soil mixing pipe (twin mix).
