Performance

PLP Usage and Design

  • Designed to elevate and protect pipe in rocky conditions.
  • Eliminates the need for sandbags, cribbing and foam pillows.
  • The PLP is designed and manufactured specifically to bridge loads.
  • Structural stability is achieved due to an addition of a high density foam polymer and a cross lamination technique specifically designed to bridge and dissipate loads.
  • Each 8” high PLP can handle a load of 2300 lbs. with little deflection while weighing less than 3 lbs.
  • When weight is removed, the foam will experience full recovery with no memory loss.

Why Use the PLP

  1. Increases production.
  2. Decreases costs.
  3. Significantly reduces injuries while promoting safety.

Production

A) Each pallet can easily be tipped and pushed onto a truck by just one laborer.
B) One laborer can carry 10 PLPs at a time (30 lbs.).
C) Staging is effortless.
D) Connecting to the pipe takes less than 1 minute each.

Costs

A) One laborer placing PLPs can do the same as four laborers using sandbags.
B) No need for track hoes, Morookas or tandem trucks.
C) One PLP has the same true cost as 6 sandbags.

Reduces Injuries

A) One 36” PLP weighs less than 3 lbs. and is equivalent to 8 or 10 sandbags at 40 lbs. each (320 lbs. – 400 lbs.).
B) Using 8 sandbags ever 15’ for one mile (5,280’) would require 2,816 bags, at a total weight of 112,640 lbs. or 56.32 tons.
C) When using the PLP, the same mile would require only 352 pieces, at a total weight of 1,056 lbs.
D) The PLP is to be strapped on the pipe before placement in the ditch. No need to get in the ditch or throw sandbags in the ditch.

Quantity per Mile 352 2,112 to 3,520
Total Pillow Weight per Mile 1056 lbs. 84,480 to 140,800 lbs.

  • One person can carry 12 PLPs, which is equivalent to carrying a master tote of sandbags.
  • One pallet of 18" PLPs (72 each) is equal to 7.48 master totes of sandbags.
  • One pallet of 36" PLPs (36 each) is equal to 4.67 master totes of sandbags.
  • PLPs have been independently tested to withstand a 2,500 lb. load. Sandbags have never been tested for load capacity.
  • JMD Company - Pipeline Pillow
  • PLPs have been independently tested to withstand 21 lbs. per square inch (PSI). Sandbags are only as strong as the outer bag material which contains the sand.
  • PLPs are closed cell and do not retain water.
  • PLPs are not affected by sunlight.
  • PLPs do not become hard or stick together in freezing conditions.
  • PLPs have been used on many projects with the same results. Half of the labor of sandbags and twice the production.
  • PLPs take up less than half the space of sandbags at lay down yards. As previously discussed, one pallet of 18" PLPs (72 each) is equal to 7.48 master totes of sandbags.
  • PLPs can and are to be installed on the pipe prior to the pipe being lowered into its trench.
  • PLPs are as effective on slopes as they are on flat ground.
  • PLPs eliminate laborer fatigue and injuries caused by heavy sandbags.
