Body - The Deep LiftⓇ Process for Sinking Structures andWe often assume that our homes, roadways, and buildings are resting on solid ground - until that support starts to give way. The same natural element that carved out the Grand Canyon causes unstable soil, voids, and even sinkholes. Water is relentless and your property is at risk if soil damage is left unchecked. Poor compaction, water erosion, broken pipes, and organic material in the soil can all lead to the settling of a foundation or a roadway. Ignoring soil erosion underneath your property can lead to disaster.

Outdated methods of addressing deep soil issues require heavy equipment, extended downtime, and collateral property damage. Alchemy-Spetec's factory-trained contractors offer a unique combination of high-quality structural lifting foams along with the equipment and training needed to address deep soil issues. Our polyurethane resin technology has been proven in use around the world and is certified to be environmentally friendly.

Solving Deep Soil Issues with the Deep LiftⓇ Process

Contractors trained in Alchemy-Spetec's Deep LiftⓇ process achieve deep soil densification and lift on large projects with the smallest footprint and the least amount of heavy equipment required. This process brings the structure back to level with minimal downtime for the property owner.

The Deep LiftⓇ Property Preservation Plan

With our support, we can help you save your property, save your money, and save your peace of mind.

  1. Start a conversation with one of our experts.
  2. We will connect you to a factory-trained contractor.
  3. The contractor will create an action custom action plan for your property.

Alchemy-Spetec's Deep LiftⓇ Process

Posted by David Park on Mar 17, 2022 10:00:00 AM

Banner - Alchemy-Spetecs Deep Lift Process

Body - Alchemy-Spetecs Deep Lift ProcessPoor compaction, water erosion, broken pipes, and organic material in the soil can all lead to the settling of a foundation or a roadway. Common methods of addressing deep soil issues require heavy equipment, extended downtime, and collateral property damage. These situations create problems for property owners as well as opportunities for specialty contractors that know how to fix them.

Introducing the Deep LiftⓇ process! Alchemy-Spetec offers a unique combination of high-quality structural lifting foams along with the equipment and training needed to address deep soil issues. Now you can achieve soil densification and lift on large projects with the smallest footprint and least amount of heavy equipment required. The Deep LiftⓇ process is powerful, painless, and rapid. Deep LiftⓇ gets to the root of the problems in the soil, it brings the structure back to level and accomplishes this with minimal imposition or downtime to the property owner.

The Deep LiftⓇ Process Explained

In our blog post, The Deep Lift Process Explained, the animated video below provides a detailed explanation of the process:

How To Evaluate a Site for Deep LiftⓇ & Deep Stabilization

In his blog post, How To Evaluate a Site for Deep LiftⓇ & Deep Stabilization, Alchemy Spetec’s Geotech Division Manager Andy Powell discusses how to gather as much information as possible about the project site such as:

  • The Cause(s) of the Settlement or Void
  • Information on the Structure
  • Geotechnical Data
  • General Observations and Measurements
  • Site Evaluation Tools

Dynamic Cone Penetrometer: An Essential Tool for Deep Lift® Jobs

In his blog post, Dynamic Cone Penetrometer: An Essential Tool for Deep Lift® Jobs, Alchemy Spetec’s Western Regional Manager Joel Bryant recommends one critical piece of equipment repeatedly: The Dynamic Cone Penetrometer (aka the DCP). Joel highly recommends this tool as an essential part of your Deep Lift® rig setup. This device is used to measure the strength of subgrade soils and can be utilized to identify weak layers of soil within a soil mass. As you can see in the video below, a hydraulic pump drops a 30kg (60lb) hammer, driving the measuring rod into the ground.
