Horizontal Directional Drilling

Horizontal Directional Drilling,

Horizontal Directional Drilling is the drilling and pushing of a pilot bore along a pre-established course which is tracked to ensure precise direction, making use of a digital tracker. At the same time, water is pumped into the rods to lube, as well as cool down the drill head. This enables the slurry to be returned to the start location.

As soon as the bore has reached its destination, the pilot bore will then be opened to a dimension that will allow the pipes to be installed. This is done using a back reamer which is rotated as well as pulled back to the machine whilst pumping more water. When the bore has been reamed to the preferred dimension the reamer is pressed back to allow the product pipeline to be connected and drawn through.

Keynorth Contractors have had comprehensive experience installing various kinds of pipelines and channel, consisting of single and multiple Electric and also Communications Conduits, Poly and Steel Gas Mains, Copper and even PVC water and sewage system pipelines and additionally stormwater.
