Quantifying Chemical Grouting Effectiveness

Quantifying Chemical Grouting EffectivenessThis blog post features Episode 2 of Alchemy-Spetec's The Injection Connection podcast.

This is a presentation given to an engineering firm regarding the new patented leak seal QA/QC system The QP Factor: the first patented method to quantify leak seal grouting and leak seal effectiveness.

As mentioned in our previous post on this system...

The method of testing requires additional drill holes to be placed at pre-determined locations along the crack, joint, or substrate being sealed. Prior to injection of chemical grouts such as Spetec PUR F400, Spetec PUR HighFoamer, or Spetec PUR GT500, the test hole is connected to a digital touch-screen device that is calibrated to provide water pressure, flow, and flow/pressure information that is extractable in excel format from a convenient USB port.  Following initial testing, the test port is then plugged during chemical grouting operations to avoid false-positive results after injection. 

The presentation was first unveiled at the International Concrete Repair Institute, National Convention in Jacksonville, Florida, in 2019. Due to the context, there may be some points that seem a little abstract to the average viewer. If you have questions or need more details, please call Alchemy-Spetec at 404-618-0438.
