Underground Construction Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) or Boring

Directional Drilling Tracks Trenchless Drilling- The International Society for Trenchless Technology defines trenchless technology as "any techniques, processes or procedures, including the equipment, machines and materials involved, which minimizes or eliminates the need for surface excavation or reduces environmental damage or reduces the associated costs for underground work."
Directional boring, commonly called horizontal directional drilling or HDD, is a steerable trenchless method of installing underground pipes, conduits and cables in a shallow arc along a prescribed bore path by using a surface launched drilling rig, with minimal impact on the surrounding area. Directional boring is used when trenching or excavating is not practical. Directional boring minimizes environmental disruption. It is suitable for a variety of soil conditions and jobs including road, landscape and river crossings. Installation lengths up to 6,500 (2,000m) have been completed, and diameters up to 56" (1,200mm) have been installed in shorter runs. Pipes can be made of materials such asPVC, polyethylene, Ductile iron, and steel if the pipes can be pulled through the drilled hole.The drilling begins with the set-up of the equipment needed to complete the bore. The first step is to view the geological surroundings and see if boring is an option. Boring is not suggested if there are voids in the rock or incomplete layers of rock. The best material is solid rock or sedimentary material. Soils with cobble stone is not recommended. There are different type of heads used in the pilot hole process and they depend on the geological material.
The equipment used in a directional drill operation depends on the size of the pipe, length of the run, and surrounding locations. For the large bores, a 100,000 pound pulling power drill is used with a reclaimer, excavator, and multiple pumps and hoses to move the fluid. The drilling steel is a 3-in. diameter pipe with male and female threads. The head of the operation comes in multiple designs and depends on the rock or soil being penetrated. The drilling head has multiple water ports to allow removal of material. A talon bit involves the diamond tipped cutters. These allow for steering and cutting the material. Another head is a mud-motor which is used in rocky landscapes.
