Loose aggregate ballast for bridges
Depending on the bridge design, you can also use MagnaDense as loose heavy aggregate for:
- Foundations for anchored bridges
With a density of up to 5.1 t/m3, MagnaDense often provides the right weight and volume when limited space is available.
Bridge projects worldwide
LKAB Minerals supplied the two largest Danish bridge projects ever done with heavy loose ballast material to support the bridge’s stability. However, the use of the heavy aggregate for these two projects was different for each bridge.
- For the Great Belt bridge, the foundations anchoring the bridges need a lot of weight to remain stable.
- Our customer filled the caissons supporting the bridge deck during the construction of the Öresund bridge with LKAB Minerals’ heavy natural minerals.
A detailed case study of both of the above projects is available upon request via our sales experts. However, you can also read our online article about these projects today.
