How Does Directional Boring Work?

  • Preliminary Survey: Before starting, a thorough site survey is conducted to assess the path and any potential obstacles, such as existing utilities, soil conditions, and environmental concerns.

  • Boring Equipment Setup: An HDD rig is positioned at one end of the intended underground path. This rig consists of a drilling machine, a drill stem (a series of connected pipes), and a drill bit designed for the specific soil and rock conditions.

  • Drilling Commences: The drill bit is advanced into the ground, creating a pilot borehole. The drilling process is guided remotely by an operator who monitors the angle and direction of the bore.

  • Reaming Passes: After completing the pilot bore, reaming passes may be made. These involve progressively larger drill bits to widen the bore to the desired diameter.

  • Pipe Installation: Once the borehole is ready, the new utility pipe or conduit is attached to the drill stem and pulled back through the borehole. As the pipe is pulled, it replaces the void left by the drill stem.

  • Completion and Connection: At the exit point, the utility is connected to the existing system, and any necessary finishing touches are made.
