How far can Geofill cellular concrete be pumped?

  • Geofill cellular concrete is a very easily pumped, highly fluid mixture. The bulk of our products are placed by pumping. These materials typically will move through the pump lines using less pressure than typical heavier grout mixes. Certain Geofill materials can be pumped up to and exceeding 500 ft. vertically and 5,000 ft. horizontally.

Are there lift requirements when placing Geofill cellular concrete?

  • Typically, Geofill Cellular Concrete is placed in 2' to 4' lifts depending on cell size. In most cases, nothing is done between lifts. Occasionally we see a specification requiring scarification, but this is rare. This material is similar to soils, not concrete.

When placing Geofill cellular concrete below water table, what steps are taken to prevent floating?

  • In most cases, you must dewater before placing material. There must be enough load on top of our material to prevent uplift. Use of the Geofill LD Pervious will help to reduce overall buoyancy.
