The PIPE MILL with Fast Service!

Steel Caissons

At Arntzen Corporation, we manufacture custom sized steel caissons used as foundations in the underground contruction industry. Our expansive property includes a facility measuring 200,000 square feet with an additional 35 acres of outdoor storage and on-site rail access. This large capacity allows us to store a large inventory of carbon steel plate for immediate production, expediting turnaround. Steel plate between 0.312" and 2" can be rolled on one of 17 different plate rolls to diameters between 24" and 192". Double Submerged Arc Welding (DSAW) is used to weld straight seems on Arntzen pipe.

Caissons are used in safety critical applications, making the quality and safety of our products our highest priority. Full material certification reports are available to verify conformance to all customer specifications. Cutting teeth, picking eyes, reinforcement bands, and twisting slots can all be incorporated into custom designs. Coating options include coal tar epoxy, black bituminous, or primer coatings. We produce steel caissons in lengths up to 120' and have the capacity to produce up to 4,000' per week. The lead time for each project is quoted on a job by job basis, with turnaround averaging between one day and three weeks. For additional information about our custom steel caissons, see the table below, or contact us directly.
