Services

Microtunneling

Directional Road Boring Inc. offers guided bore microtunneling services. Microtunneling is an extremely precise means of trenchless pipe installation used to install a wide range of pipe sizes. Man-less excavation is controlled remotely from a relatively small insertion pit.

Pipe Jacking/Tunneling

Pipe jacking or conventional tunneling is a technique used to install underground pipelines, ducts, and culverts. Typical installations are in the medium to large range of conduit sizes. Excavation is performed within a shield by hand or by mechanical means.

Auger Boring

Directional Road Boring Inc. offers both dry auger boring and wet slurry boring services. Auger boring uses a cutting head to excavate and auger to remove the spoil back in the insertion pit.

Pipe Bursting

Pipe bursting is a trenchless pipe replacement and rehabilitation method. Directional Road Boring Inc. is qualified to work with the Tenbusch Insertion Method (TIM™). The Tenbusch Insertion Method is the only trenchless method that pushes the new pipeline into place. The TIM™ System installs rigid pipe including: clay, ductile iron, steel and stainless steel, and polymer concrete pipe.

Slip-Lining

Slip-lining is a pipe rehabilitation method where a smaller diameter pipe is inserted into the existing pipeline. Slip-lining requires that the new pipe be jacked or carried into place. Typical installations are in the medium to large diameter pipe sizes.
