Belling Tools or Under Reamer
Belling buckets are used to increase the size of the pile, thereby increasing the bearing capacity or uplift capacity. Cutting arms with teeth are opened mechanically by applying vertical force with the kelly bar onto the opening mechanism of the belling bucket. Available in sizes up to 20 feet (6 m) in diameter.
Champion Kelly Bars and Extensions
Champion Kelly bars are made in single, double, or triple telescoping types, in square or round cross-sections or combination or both. They are also made in different alloys, heat treat conditions, and in many sizes and lengths.
Sectional casing is available with either lightweight or heavy duty watertight casing. Lightweight casing is for loose, dry soil, typically at the surface of a hole.
Champion’s heavy-duty sectional casing uses Leffer joints and is used with top-drive rotary rigs or with a casing oscillator and rotator. Sectional casing is available in diameters up to 12 feet (3.6 m).
Tremie Pipes and Racks
Tremie pipes, used for placing concrete below water level, are available in various sizes. Accompanying racks are also available, to stock pipes and make it easy to move from one jobsite to another.
