Pipe Ramming

Pipe ramming is a trenchless method for the installation of steel pipes used when sandy soil is present and impact moling is not possible, or where larger pipes or ducts are required.

The pipe rammer is locked into the end of the steel pipe and the pipe is driven through the ground by pneumatic percussive blows to one end. The soil is forced internally up the pipe and on completion is then augered out.

The pipe can then be used as a water pipe (irrigation), drain or as a duct for another service.
