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 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.

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 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 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.

Directional drilling, horizontal directional drilling, and  directional boring are guided boring operations. Directional Road Boring  Inc. is fully equipped and experienced in directional drilling  applications ranging from the smallest to the largest pipe diameters.
