Pipe Ramming

Pipe Ramming is a method for installation of steel pipes and casings. Distances up to 30m long and up to 1,500mm in diameter are feasible, however this method can be used for much larger installations.

Pipe Ramming is extremely versatile as it can can operate from a pit or above ground level as it does not require a thrust wall. Pipe Ramming is also a fast solution and in many cases, has lower overall costs. As No-Dig installation specialists, we own and operate a wide range of Pipe Rammers, and have installed pipes up to 130m in length.

The Advantages
