Behind the Scenes of Directional Boring – Boston Equator

This video illustrates that all the work is underground. This cylindrical, rotating piece has a tri-cone head attached to a very extensive lead line. This bit spews water out into the cone region to speed directional boring and chill the tool while drilling into the earth.

Utilizing a tiny staging area for the collection of this water, the drilling operator will follow a planned route in order to perform the horizontal drilling. The device’s tracking system takes place above the ground and follows the sensors to ensure it follows the pre-planned route. Once it has reached its destination it leaves the ground in the same location to where it was launched. The small staging spaces typically have a size of around four feet wide, and therefore they need little digging and can reduce the need for destruction of the existing landscaping or properties. gngve9cguq.
