New solution for hardening soft ground launched by ALLU at Shanghai summit

The 7th China International Piling and Deep Foundations Summit was held 24-26 April in Shanghai. Processing technology firm ALLU unveiled a new addition to its range of mass stabilization equipment, the ALLU PROCESSOR

The China International Piling and Deep Foundations Summit is said to be the largest and most comprehensive piling and deep foundation event held in Asia. Its main focus is on cutting-edge technologies and solutions that have been developed to deliver successful construction techniques in pile foundation, exchange of piling and deep foundation engineering.

In order to provide an academic and practical outline of its solutions for businesses involved in these diverse areas, ALLU hosted a customer seminar during the Summit discussing such topics as:

• Mass stabilization – versatile ground improvement method
• The application and development of mass stabilization in China
• ALLU products for foundations, remediation and solidification

ALLU says it has established itself as an important supplier of equipment aimed at delivering transforming solutions for mass stabilization systems, mixing equipment and equipment for feeding different binders. According to the firm, these products have been developed in close collaboration with customers to provide solutions for problems faced specifically by earthmoving contractors, saving them time and reducing their operating costs.

At the event, ALLU unveiled its latest development, a solution for foundation, remediation and solidification work, the ALLU PROCESSOR.

The ALLU PROCESSOR is a hydraulic attachment for excavators which may be used with any binder or together with any type of binder feeding system. This includes dry (powder) materials, wet (slurry) and air (blowing air instead of binder trough the binder feeding tube).

The binder is fed by compressed air into the ground to the optimum point between the drums. Inclined drums and streamlined frame design ensure easy penetration even through hard crust layers enabling dry and wet material to be pushed through, mixed to ground and / or with material. Operational flexibility is assured as the ALLU PROCESSOR may be mounted onto a standard excavator by a pin mounting or quick hitch adapter plate.

The ALLU PROCESSOR is part of ALLU’s range of mass stabilization equipment. This range has been developed for hardening soft ground by adding binder into the soil. This method can also be used for processing and encapsulating contaminated materials. Essentially it enables customers to benefit from not having to transport contaminated material to site, resulting in material being hardened so it will not spread. Furthermore soil does not have to be transported to site so when used, for example on embankment work, the hardened soil will stay put and hold firm.
