The Omega screw pile is a vibration-free pile with lateral soil displacement. Soil displacement occurs during both the screwing-in (2.) and the screwing-out (4.) installation sequences of the pile. The shaft of the Omega pile is cylindrical.
1. At the spot of the set out axis of the pile, the piling rig is accurately brought in the correct starting position. The lost closing nut tip is placed under the Omega screw head, thus preventing any penetration of water and/or soil during screwing-in.
2. During the screwing-in sequence, the soil is laterally displaced by means of the especially designed Omega auger screwed-in by a powerful rotary head. An additional thrust force (pull-down) is possibly applied.
3. Once the specified installation depth is reached, full-length reinforcement may eventually be placed into the hollow stem of the central tube prior to concreting (not shown on the drawing).
4. During screwing-out, as the auger is withdrawn, concrete under pressure is injected through the central tube into the borehole. The Omega screw remains rotating in the same sense as during screwing-in while the counter-screw produces a second soil displacement during the concreting phase.

Possibility of quality control of the pile construction process via the continuous registration of the execution parameters resulting in a proper pile installation.
