Drilco Services – Jet Grout
Jet grouting creates in situ geometries of soilcrete (grouted soil), using a grouting monitor attached to the end of a drill stem. The jet grout monitor is advanced to the maximum treatment depth. Then high velocity jets (cement grout with optional water and air) are initiated from ports in the monitor. The jets erode and mix the in situ soil with grout as the drill stem and monitor are rotated and raised. Jet grouting can be used for numerous different types of construction such as: ground improvement, groundwater control, excavation shoring and underpinning.
