Pipeline anchoring solutions using screw anchors
and ScrewPilesTM for more than twenty years.
AnchorPipe has installed more than 100,000 hold-down screw anchor sets and ScrewPile pipeline supports in hundreds of applications worldwide. AnchorPipe will engineer, fabricate, and install an anchoring system to permanently stabilize your pipeline. For most projects, we furnish the material, hydraulic anchor drive motors and technical support. Our technicians monitor the installation torque to assure the design holding capacity (10,000 lbs. to 125,000 lbs.) is achieved. The owner, or their contractor, will furnish the support equipment (crane or excavator) and the labor. We also offer turnkey services.

In most cases, ScrewPiles and screw anchors hold more and cost less than alternatives such as concrete pipeline coating, set-on weights, or bolt-on weights. Normally, the savings are greater than 50%. The installed cost of screw anchors on a 36" pipeline, designed for 1.45 s.g., can be $11 per foot of pipeline. The cost for 18" pipelines runs about $7 per foot. (These estimates are subject to specific job conditions.)

If necessary, we will determine the loading and soil conditions present.
