Large Canal Lining Equipment
Large canals cover everything from large power channels and main canals to small distributary and secondary canals that run as small as approx. 2.5m (8 ft.) deep and 2.5m (8 ft.) bottom width. Depending on the size of the canal, the canal can be trimmed and lined in a single pass (Full Span) or in one or more passes (Half Span or a combination of Half Span and Flat Configuration). Whether a canal should be paved Full Span or Half Span depends on many factors such as canal bottom width, ground conditions, schedule, embankment width available at the top of the canal, etc.
