Team Mixing Technologies Inc. was awarded a contract to provide a Bi-Component (A/B type) grout plant for a TBM tunnelling project in Turkey. For this particular project a 9.16m diameter Earth Pressure Balance Machine (EPBM) was used to drive a 6.7 km long tunnel. The Bi-Component grout was injected through the tailshield.

Because of the long pump distance, high pressure piston pumps were selected for transferring the “A” and “B” components to the TBM holding tanks. A pipeline cleaning “pig” launcher was included for a 2” grout line.

Although the silos were provided by the customer, Team Mixing supplied the screw conveyors and motor starters which were integrated into the control system of the plant.
