Directional Thrust Boring machine VR-40 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 VR-40 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 one meters per minute, this is the fastest move in the industry!
The VR-40 can be use in a hard soil conditions, the temperature range from -20 °C to +40 °C
Work out of 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 a built-in two way hydraulic wrench is provided for segmentally turning the drill rods, the rod string is rotated by moving the valve control lever, which is much more convenient than manually turning with a 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 VR-40 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;
