Vermeer BoreAid 4.0

Enhanced system for HDD professionals

Vermeer BoreAid 4.0

BoreAid is a unique planning and design software package for assisting engineering consultants, contractors and municipalities in planning, designing and completing horizontal directional drilling (HDD) jobs more efficiently.

Vermeer BoreAid 4.0 calculates the bend radius of the bore to ensure the product pipe and drill rod bend is in-line with product specifications and analyzes the induced pipe stress to ensure the pipe remains fully intact during and after installation. This unique software also assesses drill fluid requirements by calculating the amount of drill fluid needed to complete a bore and how much cuttings disposal to anticipate - information that is very helpful in determining if the pump and equipment will be sufficient for the drill operation. The advanced, full 3D bore-planning capabilities allow for pullback load calculations in situations with compound curves and horizontal bending, all based on industry standards, giving the user critical pipe stress information for a bore path with multiple tangent and curved sections.

“Project owners, engineers and contractors often struggle to accurately assess feasibilities of different approaches for completing a complex bore in diverse and challenging conditions,” said Reinhard Beschel, global product manager, Advanced Control Systems, at Vermeer. “The Vermeer BoreAid 4.0 software takes into account the many varying parameters of the soil, pipe, machine, etc., based on scientifically proven methods and industry standards, to generate an efficient bore plan.”
