Advancements in Slurry Microtunneling for Long Distance and Curved Tunnels

Wed, Jun 13, 2018 2:00 PM EDT


Akkerman Slurry Microtunneling systems are used to install 30-114-inch pipelines that require precise line and grade in virtually all ground conditions from wet and unstable soils up to high compressive strength rock.

This remote-controlled, continuously supported pipe jacking method is suitable for non-disruptive installations under existing utilities, highways, railroads, levees, waterways, environmentally sensitive wetland and wet retrieval pipeline installations.

Microtunneling equipment has been around since the 1970s, but within the last decade, technological advancements have expanded the equipment’s realm of capabilities for a broader range of ground conditions and longer distances. Improvements in the variety and quality of cutter head tooling, tunneling navigation systems for extended length and curved alignments, lubrication products and lubrication delivery systems have made it possible to go further at larger diameters.

This webinar will overview the slurry microtunneling method, newest equipment innovations, tunneling navigation systems, lubrication options and recent case studies.
