TT Technologies will be displaying its full line of trenchless piercing tools, pipe ramming tools and pipe bursting tools, at CONEXPO 2017 in Las Vegas, NV. Attendees will be able to see the complete line of trenchless equipment including the Grundoburst static pipe bursting system and Grundocrack pneumatic pipe bursting tools.The Grundoburst static pipe bursting system utilizes a specially designed bladed cutter head to make bursting ductile iron and steel pipe possible. The Grundoburst systems range in size from 45 to 287 tons of pullback force and can be used to burst pipe from 4 to 48 inches. Grundocrack pneumatic pipe bursting tools can be used to burst fracturable pipe from 4 to 54 inches in diameter. Grundoram pneumatic pipe ramming tools can be used to ram steel casings ranging in size from 6 through 144 inches in diameter.
TT Technologies recently introduced a new cutterhead configuration for its Grundoburst static pipe bursting system. The new configuration consists of three specially designed bladed, roller cutterheads in succession. The bladed roller cutting head configuration allows contractors to burst/split large diameter steel and ductile iron pipes when used with larger Grundoburst static bursting systems. The new special cutterhead design allows for a smoother host pipe cut and greater protection for the new pipe.
TT Technologies, is now offering the latest Prime Drilling HDD drill rig with 135,000 lbs. (600 kN) of pullback. The new Prime Drilling PD 60/30 is compact, yet powerful and technically advanced. Because the unit is self-contained, transport and set up times are greatly reduced time. The unit features a specially designed, space-saving, onboard high-pressure pump ideal for greater maneuverability and jobsite flexibility.
TT Technologies, offers a wide range of plastic pipe splitting heads developed by working directly with gas utilities to create optimum splitting head configurations. The designs are capable of splitting and replacing plastic gas service and main lines from ½-inch to 4 inches in diameter. The hardened heat-treated steel cutting blades are available in various designs and sizes to best match the type of plastic host pipe, as well as soil conditions. For service line splitting, the splitting heads are paired with a Mini Grundotugger winch or pulled with a backhoe. For main line splitting, a larger Grundowinch cable pulling system is used.
Design engineers, with the help of contractors and equipment manufacturers, are pushing the limits on pipe size and drive lengths for pipe ramming projects. Much care and planning are necessary for a project to be successful like one recently competed by In-Ling Contracting Ltd. The project, in Fort McMurray, Alberta, involved installing a 3,657 mm by 72 m long steel creek drainage line under Highway 63. In-Ling Contracting Ltd., was contracted to perform the work.
