K) Installation of the product pipe: While reaming the bore hole the pipe is Fusion or Butt welded (Fusion or Butt welding method on PE-HD pipes) to the full length of the drill run and is formed into a tied bundle of individual pipes.

Stabilize the hole against collapse while drilling and reaming. There are different shapes of reamers that enable you to cut soft and hard formations. because the reamer will rotate continuously during the operation of pulling back the pipe bundle so as to ensure a clean bore hole is maintained during this pulling in of the bundle operation. The steering engineer and the driller can keep the drilling tool on the designed curve. Make a filter-cake to guard against loss of slurry into surrounding formations. While closing the road. b) Slurry composition The slurries most commonly used are bentonite based. drill rods are pulled into the hole. The receiver sends the information to a remote control panel on the drilling rig. These operations always start with a small-scale reamer and end with a diameter that is around 1. so as to keep a too & fro motion on the drilling operation. also to maintain an opportunity to with draw & re-position the reaming tool should the geological structure change. the pipe is connected to the reamer with a towing head and the swivel. Transport drill-cut material (sand etc) to the start or exit pit. 5. J) Reaming of pilot hole: When the pilot hole reaches the exit pit the drill equipment will be re-placed and connected to the pullback assembly called a reamer tool. On road crossings one lane has to be blocked for few minutes while the drilling tool is moving under it. distance and inclination are sent from down hole through a wire line in the drill rod into the computer. Drilling mud: a) The directional crossing process requires the use of Bentonite slurry that provides the following functions: 1. The driller can correct the position of the drilling tool and can keep it in the desired level & direction. Lubrication to the drilling tool and drilling rods. After the last reaming step is finished. Often polymers extenders are also added to enhance certain characteristics. c) Pump volume and pressure Subcontractor Contractor Client ABB AG TRANSCO .
