DEMYSTIFYING HORIZONTAL BORING EQUIPMENT

Horizontal boring equipment is capable of performing diverse services including rock drilling, auger boring and tunneling. These applications are usually characterized by the involvement of huge companies and the use of gigantic and sophisticated machinery to get the work done. It is impossible to do this work without these machines. The work is usually complicated and the involvement of professionals is a must. There are two types of horizontal boring equipment installation, these are duct and grout installation. In the duct installation, wire ropes are placed inside a casing and distanced from the jacking pits. These ropes are very important as they prevent the duct from getting out of its place inside the casing. In the grout installation, both the higher and lower ends of the casing, except for an air vent, are blocked. Grout is then pumped into the hose to fill the empty spaces.

There are several applications for the horizontal boring equipment depending on the industry and work being done. The most common applications are auger boring, tunneling and rock drilling as earlier mentioned. In auger boring, the horizontal boring machine is fitted with a wide range of diameters for the steel casing. This application relies on the amount of work and the condition of the ground being bored. Tunneling is the other application mostly needed when railroads are being built. The diameter of the tunnels that are being built range between 36 inches and 120 inches depending on many factors such as terrain. Different steel casings are used to perform hard rocking. There is a wide range of applications for the horizontal boring equipment all over the world. However, the first step of getting the job done successfully is getting the right equipment. Always make sure that you purchase exactly what is designed for the project that you are undertaking. Failure to do this will lead to both time and money wastage.

 


When installing horizontal boring equipment, you should analyze your needs and applications before deciding if you should get a duct or grout installation

Horizontal boring equipment can be either installed via duct or grout installations. Does anyone know what types is superior?
