Auger Bore Drilling Project

Auger Bore Drilling Under Railroad Tracks

Technique to install a casing under roadways, streams, railroad tracks or areas where ground disturbance can not occur. Method consists of a rotating drill head driven by augers inside a steel casing that is jacked into place as the machine advances. Once the bore is complete the augers and drill head are removed leaving the steel casing in place. A carrier pipe (gas, water, sanitary) is installed using centralizers and end seals to complete the bore.
