HD PILING

MADE OF HIGH-STRENGTH, HEAVY-WALLED DOM MATERIAL

HOW OUR PILES ARE MADE

FEATURES

INNOVATIVE HD ANCHORS & PILE SYSTEMS

Our solutions have changed the nature of foundational piles as they are seen by the Industry, and set the standard for quality and reliability.

SOCKET DRIVE TECHNOLOGY

If you have ever used a socket to turn a bolt, you can understand why our socket drive technology is simple and reliable. It is the best way to transmit torque into a pile to drive it. APE has patents on external Socket and internal Allen wrench type drives. Any drilling equipment can be easily modified to use the socket drive technology.

THREADED & COUPLED CONNECTIONS

APE Drilling has developed material that uses high-strength oil field casings that are threaded and coupled with patented coupler designs. This connection continues the pile shaft sectional strength through the connection in tension, compression, and bending. The connection can be made in less than a minute and makes low headroom work simple. This connection also allows for any depth of pile to be installed; very deep drives are not a restriction for our system.

Without the socket drive technology you cannot make up threaded connections, the other systems using large pins to drive the pile keep the material connected to the drill and do not allow the operator to put the pin (male thread) into the female coupler without a high percentage of cross threaded connections.

LARGE DIAMETERS & SIZES

We can manufacture and provide large diameter shafts up to 42″ in diameter with 1″ wall 80,000-yield DSAW pipe, along with a variety of other sizes to match any need.

PROTECTING THE ENVIRONMENT

The design of our HD piles and HD series drivers are helping our clients overcome the endangered species issues that are crippling steel pile driving in marine and wilderness-dense environments. Low noise and low vibrations from our products ensure the safety and care of surrounding wildlife.
