Calgary Tunnelling & Horizontal Augering Ltd. :: Guided Boring System Services

The Guided Boring System installs small diameter pipe on line and grade with precision. The System uses video monitoring of an illuminated target via a theodolite. By using video surveillance, the Guided Boring Method can produce exact results for gravity sewer and water.

After the guided head reaches the reception shaft, a reaming head and auger tubes with flighting are installed to follow the guide line and bore the line clear.

Calgary Tunnelling & Horizontal Augering Ltd. :: Pipe Ramming Services

When ground conditions make Augering difficult (i.e. Pit Run, Cobble, Wet Sand) Hammering makes an excellent alternative. This method of pipe installation has the benefit of being pushed directly into the ground leaving the soil undisturbed. This method of installation is achieved by hammering a steel pipe through the ground. After the hammer shot is successfully completed the spoil is removed entirely.
