Directional Thrust Boring machine UPKT-50 is a powerful hydraulic driven replacement tool. This machine can provide steerable thrust boring up to 150 meters, designed to install pipes and cables from a pit or basement. The UPKT-50 works great for trenchless instalation of electric lines, all water pipes and gas pipes in an area which cannot be dug, under roads, walkways, circular driveways, out to the curb stop, or under driveways.
Carriage drive speed (boring speed) is a two meters per minute, this is the absolutely fastest move in the industry!
The UPKT-50 can be use in a hard soil conditions, the temperature range from -20 °C to +45 °C
But you must understand that to rotate the drill rods you have to use a hand pipe wrench (included) to manually rotate the drill rods while adjusting the direction of drilling, there is no hydraulic gear.
Work from the pit or basement: The machine is located in a pit or in the basement of the room, drill rods enter the soil in a horizontal plane, then the drilling path can be changed, for example, so that the tip goes into the sewer well or into the basement of the room or even to the surface of the earth.
The path control is the same as in HDD method, but here you need to manually rotate the drill rods by pipe wrench.
The control of steerable thrust boring can be provided by underground location systems such as Mark, DigiTrack, Subsite, ERA or SNS (Russian made) and others.
The UPKT-50 is perfect choice for connecting houses to gas pipelines, water, sewers, for laying electric cables, for laying communications under roads and objects in a hard soil conditions.
- quick carriage drive speed (boring speed), work will be done 2 times faster!
- possibility to use in all ground conditions, precise control path;
- steerable thrust boring at a distance of up to 150 meters and more;
- very robust construction, powerful traction in a mid sizes;
- maximum deployment time at the facility 30 min;
- does not require highly qualified workers;
- simplicity in operation;
