Set-On/Saddle Pipeline Weights
The Century set-on/saddle pipeline weights are supplied on pipeline projects where the pipe is being placed in wetlands/marsh areas, river bottoms, flood plains, and areas where there is a high degree of alluvial soils. The set-on pipe weights are designed where the weight of the concrete is on the legs but also allows the pipe weight to control the buoyancy of the pipeline.

Bolt-On/River Weights
Century Group Inc. also provides custom-designed precast concrete bolt-on or river weights for pipeline projects which transcend waterways such as rivers, streams, bays, lakes, commercial waterways, and wetlands which have unstable bottoms/substrates. The bolt-on pipe weights can be manufactured in various sizes and shapes and are designed to allow for gasket material to be used to provide a protective layer between the pipe and the pipe weight. Century Group also uses either galvanized or stainless steel bolts and washers to ensure long term durability of the connection fittings.

The pipe weights are ready to install when they reach the job site and can be easily set using safe and approved lifting slings supplied by Century Group. If the project is time sensitive, the pipe weights can be manufactured in advance of the actual on-site startup of the project and be ready for shipment as soon as personnel and equipment is mobilized to the job site.
