    What is Horizontal Directional Drilling?

    Horizontal Directional Drilling is the process of installing underground utility lines with minimal excavation required. This process is primarily used to minimize disruption to existing surface structures and above-ground activity such as roadways. Throughout this process, a pilot bore is horizontally drilled underground to determine the path of the proposed utility line being installed. A transmitter located in the drill head underground provides detailed information to the aboveground receiver. This data is then used to determine if changes need to be made in the direction of the drill path. After the pilot bore is completed, the drill head is removed and a backreamer is pulled and rotated back to enlarge the drill path. A swivel attaches the proposed pipe product or cable to the backreamer and is then pulled through the proposed drill path. Horizontal Directional Drilling has proven to be an effective alternative to the installation of underground utilities.
  • Pipe Bursting Installation Capabilities (trenchless)

    What is Pipebursting Technology?

    Pipebursting is the process of replacing an underground utility line by pulling a new pipe through the existing pipe. Throughout this process, a cable attached to a winch system is placed through the existing pipe at an exposed exit pit. The cable is then connected to a pneumatic bursting tool at the entrance pit, which is powered by an air compressor. An expander device attaches the proposed pipe product to the pneumatic bursting tool and is then pulled through the old pipe. The pneumatic bursting tool hammers its way through the host pipe, displacing the fragments into the surrounding soil, while simultaneously pulling the new pipe into place behind it. Pipebursting can be used throughout various applications depending on specific factors, and is the only trenchless method of replacement that allows for the upsizing of the original pipe.
