WHO WE ARE
JETTING AND DRAIN CLEANING
Servicing commercial, civil, and rail projects.
Underground boring, also known as directional boring, is a process used to install underground utilities including piping and cabling. It is a process that uses a surface mounted drill or excavation unit such as a vacuum truck to create underground holes without disturbing the surface aboveground. This causes less environmental damage than trenching, and saves time and money in the pipe laying process.
Directional boring is done in three stages. The first stage is where a pilot tunnel is drilled along the path where the pipes need to be laid. The second stage is where the original tunnel is expanded using a larger cutter tool known as a back reamer, of which the size is determined by the size of the pipe to be laid. The third stage is the laying of the new pipeline. The pipe is pulled along behind the reamer which allows it to be correctly centred in the new tunnel.
Underground boring can be conducted along long distances, installing multiple pipes in the process. It reduces the effects on existing structures, sensitive areas, and reduces disruption to the public and businesses around the boring area.
