HDD Boring

Horizontal Directional Drilling, sometimes referred to as Directional Boring (though incorrect), is a trench-less method of installing piping and cable systems underground in a shallow arc along a predetermined path by the use of highly specialized drilling equipment

Minimizing the environmental impact on the surrounding area, Horizontal Directional Drilling is best suited to applications where traditional trenching or excavating is either not practical or otherwise impossible.

Installing piping, conduit or cabling underground viahorizontal directional drilling is quickly becoming the preferred method of underground installation, worldwide – Providing a host of benefits from sheer speed, less noise and ecological disturbance.

There are several key components to an HDD installation aside from the directional drill itself – These include the drilling fluids (mud), back reamer (used to enlarge the bore hole to accommodate the product), a plug (to smooth the bore after reaming) and finally the product to be pulled back.
