TM Pump lift stations 1

Installing pump and lift stations can be a time-consuming process. With years of experience in providing safe and cost-effective shoring equipment for pump and lift stations, Pro-Tec Equipment has come up with a few ways to help you with your project. Depending upon the total depth of your project, the equipment needs will differ.

Equipment Needs

Projects 22’ or Deeper

For projects that are at a depth of 22’ or deeper, you would require a Triple Slide Rail System, using a 100,000+ lbs machine.

Projects 13’ to 22’

Projects from 13’ to 22’ can use a Double Slide Rail System, using a 72,000+ lbs machine.

Projects Less Than 13’ Deep

Shallow projects less than 13’ deep would be able to use either our Single Slide Rail system or a 4-sided trench shield system, which would involve trench shields, spreaders, our unique hanger bracket system and additional trench shield panels to close off the third and fourth sides of the system.

Very Poor Soil Conditions

For extremely poor soil conditions, the Pro-Brace Hydraulic Frame system could be the answer for your pump and lift station needs. The Pro-Brace is a cost-saving system compared to traditional weld and cut systems. With the ability to use a variety of sheet pile, the Pro-Brace Hydraulic Frame System is a product that can be used on a wide range of projects.

No matter what depth your pump and lift station project is, it is a good rule of thumb to have your inside dimension of the system be 3’– 4’ larger than the outside dimension of the structure.

Every project is unique, with different depths and other extenuating circumstances, such as: soil conditions, water levels, existing utilities and other parameters. Please contact your local Pro-Tec Trench Shoring and Shielding provider with as many details as possible to ensure you are matched with the best trench shield or shoring equipment to fit your project's particular needs.
