TekTrench System - Minova Global


TekTrench System


The TekTrench System is a pumpable two-component material that is used to construct pillows and breakers/plugs used to support gas, oil or utility pipelines. The ease and speed of installation reduces downtime and improves pipeline installation productivity. The product has superior adhesion and water permeability characteristics making it an excellent choice to slow or stop the ingress of water in trenches.
The TekTrench System eliminates the need to manually handle and place heavy sandbags replacing it with a simple pumped-in-place installation method for trench pillows and breakers/plugs. Worker injury risks are mitigated, and safety is improved as workers no longer need to be in confined trench spaces placing sandbags. Field operational efficiency is also improved, and material consumption rates reduced all the while requiring less manpower. Costs and environmental impact are lowered by not having to ship numerous truckloads of sand to remote locations, thus lowering overall project carbon footprint when compared to traditional sandbag installations.
