Pipe Piling

Deep foundations are required when the shallow soils are not strong enough to support the loads from the structure. Pipe piles are commonly used in deep foundations and transfer the loads from building to stronger soil layers found deep underground. The loads are resisted through skin friction and point bearing. Pipe can be driven either open-ended or closed-ended, with points or plates. If driven with plates, the pipes can then be filled with concrete to add strength to the pile. Usually the money spent on plates, rebar, and concrete would be better spent on a larger, thicker pile. Pipe piles range in size from several inches to several feet in diameter and can be easily spliced to create piles hundreds of feet in length.

Caissons

Caissons are most commonly used for bridge applications where it is necessary to drill into river bed material below water to found pilings or a pier foundation. Caissons are usually large diameter pipe, upwards of 10’ or more. Large diameter rolled and welded pipe provides the installation capability for these high-strength foundation systems.

Structural Applications

Spiralweld and rolled and welded pipe have many piling and transmission purposes, but they are also very effective as structural material. From tank legs and sign structures, to secant pile and combination retaining walls, steel pipe provides designers with excellent strength-to-weight characteristics and product availability. Pipe also has the advantage of being able to be sized to order.

Line Pipe

Welded steel pipe provides a very effective way to transfer liquids and air. Steel Pipe is pound per pound stronger than any other type of pipe. Pipe can be designed to handle both internal and external pressures of most applications. Welded steel pipe offers many advantages, such as: strength, economy, lightweight and ease of installation. Skyline Steel is SPFA certified and manufactures hydrotested pipe for a variety of applications. We produce 10-3/4" OD – 90" OD hydrotested pipe using a Double Submerged Arc Weld process in both Spiralweld and Rolled & Welded Pipe. Hydrotested pipe lengths range from 30' – 60', wall thickness from .250" – 2.0" wall and produced per AWWA C200/ ASTM A139/ASTM A134.
