About Pilot Tube Guided Auger Boring Systems: By using the pilot tube trenchless method of installing underground utilities, water lines and sanitary sewers, you can reduce costs by 50% when compared to complicated laser controlled microtunneling systems.
Relining creates a leak-tight "pipe within a pipe" system, which is as good as new in both structural and hydraulic terms. The method has an unbeatable advantage: the old pipeline is replaced quickly and easily and the client benefits of a pipe that is of the same quality as a new one in every way.
A tunnel is an underground passageway, dug through the surrounding soil/earth/rock and enclosed except for entrance and exit, commonly at each end. A pipeline is not a tunnel, though some recent tunnels have used immersed tube construction techniques rather than traditional tunnel boring methods.
Microtunneling is trenchless pipe installation by remote-controlled jacking. HOBAS Jacking Pipes show high compressive strength and consistent superior quality. HOBAS CC-GRP Jacking Pipe Systems experience the lowest jacking loads in the industry.
About Tunnel Access Pits. ICON Tunnel Systems offers all Trenchless Contractors the unique opportunity to own the world's strongest and most versatile slide rail system for use in sheeting and shoring Tunnel Access Pits for Microtunneling, Auger Boring, Pipe Jacking, Pipe Ramming, Slip Lining and More.
Pipe jacking is a specialist tunnelling method for installing underground pipelines with the minimum surface disruption. Primarily used for new sewer construction it is also used for sewer replacement and relining, gas and water mains, oil pipelines, electricity and telecommunication installations, culverts and subways.
