We are glad to announce, that the Hamco MultiPlate strong and durable prefabricated steel profiles have been added to the product assortment available in Hydroseal LLC. These quality steel plates are made in Germany and offer great variety of possibilities to construct pipe bridges with different shapes and dimensions. Corrugated steel pipes are assembled from corrugated steel plates, which are curved according to the pipe shape and will be connected to each other with bolts.
Hamco Dinslaken Bausysteme GmbH is family-run, international operating company located in Dinslaken (Germany, North Rhine-Westphalia) since 1956 dealing with the manufacture and sale of prefabricated steel parts for road construction and civil engineering as well as for industry and agriculture. Hamco Dinslaken Bausysteme GmbH is the legal successor of Armco Dinslaken GmbH (previous Armco-Thyssen GmbH).
Hamco Dinslaken Bausysteme GmbH supports the development of the construction method today as in the past significantly by scientific investigations, technical tests as well as innova-tive and economical feasibility research, e.g. with the help of factory-made special construc-tions with different levels of difficulty.
Virtues like quality, innovation and reliability has always been taking a high value. With proud we still look on the today the state of the technology relevant results of the pioneering works of the Dinslakener engineers (e.g. dynamic long term test 1960, static load carrying test 1963, use of the Duplex systems for prefabricated steel parts on a semi-automatic coating machine since 1966, publication of the Klöppel/Glock design method 1970, development and first market implementation of the meanwhile worldwide-known corrugated steel product 200mm x 55mm in the end of the 1970’s, etc.) as well as several tens of thousands produced corrugated steel pipes in Dinslaken since 1956 used for the different applications worldwide.
Corrugated steel products
Bridges and culverts are essential parts in the system of roads and ways. The maintenance and construction of the efficiency of an economic domain and its environmental development require permanent care, renewal and reconstruction of roads and ways, as well as water courses. Construction and reconstruction of bridges and culverts are involved, whereby low-price solutions matched to the landscape are asked for. Increasing shortage in money of public budgets and keen competitive conditions of the economy force to search for economical, technical solutions, which at low cost-expense fulfill fast, long-lasting construction work with defined service value.
Flexible, embedded pipe made of Hamco structural steel parts (corrugated steel pipes) is a construction system, which for various problems fulfills these conditions perfectly:
• fast in preparation and execution of construction;
• economic, and with its high-quality corrosion protection long-lasting;
• nonsensitive compared to settlements;
• existing corrugated steel buildings can be extended by attaching new structural steel parts;
• dilapidated bridges or arch building can be restructured by inserting corrugated steel pipes without exerting influence of the above operating traffic.
On job-site, corrugated steel pipes or MultiPlate are assembled from corrugated steel plates, which are curved according to the pipe shape. Usual pipe forms are circular profiles, pipe arches with various relationships of height/width, ellipses, circular arches and super-span arches. The Hamco MultiPlate program includes optimized corrugations for different cases of application.
Waves of the steel plates:
Steel thickness 2.5 mm to 7.5 mm
Steel plates’ lengths:
2m and 3m
2m – 100 kg
3m – 150 kg
Known fields of application are culverts and bridges in roads of all classes up to highways and service roads for heavy traffic. However, fields of application are by far not fully utilized. Using further construction elements, such as steel walls, bends, connecting pieces, entries, etc. pipes of various length can be constructed as well as storm water basins, back-water sewer, collecting pipes, escape tunnel or drainage pipe gallery in ground storage.
In addition to the standard cross-sections a variety of special profiles can be obtained with a variation of radii and angles of aperture to serve best the application purposes. Existing railway tracks and pipeline roads can be bridged with MultiPlate arches. The use of strutural steel parts for the repair and reconstruction of old vault bridges and culverts with running traffic is most suitable. For these applications the profiles can also best be matched to the cross-section of the vault.
