The function and purpose of precast concrete water channels
Concrete channels are used for many purposes, such as installation of the utility and heating main systems, installation of the cable run and the system of water drainage structures. The main function of precast concrete water channels is to drain rainwater and melt-water away. That is how they got its name. Besides, they are widely used in civil and industrial engineering. The quality of concrete water channel is much higher than the ones made of plastic. They outperform plastic water channels in mechanical reliability as well as in durability.
Standardized channel is molded as U-shaped channel, closed on the top by a steel or cast-iron grate. Concrete segments of the drain have different classes of loading according to specific design load.
Classification of Drainage Channels:
Model A15 (intended load up to 1,5 tons) is used for engineering of sidewalks, bike paths, parkland or household plots
Model B125 (intended load up to 12,5 tons) is used for engineering of the roads and the passage of light vehicles (for example: access roads of the private housing, garages and parking lots).
Model C250 (intended load up to 25 tons) is used for engineering of motorway filling stations, car services and secondary roads.
Model D400 (intended load up to 40 tons) is used for engineering of the industrial enterprise territories, federal highways and regional roads, and transport terminals.
Model E600 (intended load up to 60 tons) is used for engineering of large industrial establishments, storage facilities and hangars for heavy-duty trucks.
Model F900 (intended load up to 90 tons) is used for engineering of seaports, airports, and airfields.
Intended design load determines product size, its wall thickness, its reinforcement type, and type of the channel screen. As this channel has a high level capability, there is an arris attached to the concrete item by an anchor clamping which allows the gutter to withstand frequent dynamic forces without destruction.
Steel moulds for Water Channels
The main specialization of company M-Konstructor is to produce steel moulds for precast concrete elements production. We have an extensive experience in this area, so we can guarantee the production of the high-quality steel moulds for precast concrete products.
The drainage water channel construction provides an easy unmoulding of the product and its further technological effectiveness. Besides, it provides plain surface of the final product during the whole operation life of the mould. Our company can produce steel moulds for typical channels of any strengths class or we can produce channels in accordance with your personal technical requirements. Besides drain gutters, our company also produces parabolic water channel for agricultural and pasture water supply.
Precast Concrete Sand Traps
In order the water channel not to be stemmed with sand, silt or any other garbage, there are grit catchers installed into the construction. These devices are supposed to be used for wastewater treatment from suspended particles. They can be used in private housing engineering as well as in engineering of the industrial enterprises, traffic arteries, seaports and public utility systems. The construction of grit catcher provides ease of installation and maintenance of the product. It also allows the product to operate under high loads.
Steel Moulds for Production of Precast Sand Traps
Engineering department of our company designs steel moulds that can be easily transported to the customer's site. The design of the moulds ensures not only processability of the production process, but also a perfect shape even of the most complex surfaces of the final product. What is more, the construction of the mould remains very rigid during the whole exploitation period. Grid catcher steel moulds, produced by our company, can be used up to 500 castings and they fully comply with GOST (all-Union State Standard) standards.
