When to choose the Pipe-Pusher®?
The Pipe-Pusher® innovation was developed by VLTT to be used in controlled drilling technologies (HDD) to reduce the required pulling force on the drilling rig, to centre the pipeline in the borehole and to remove the weight of the pipe on the conveyor track. Take in addition, our pipe pushers are used to install pipes at offshore sea landings. The pipe pushers are also used to install pipes and reline transport pipes.
What are the advantages?
- Reduces required pulling force on the drilling rig
- Centres pipeline exactly into the borehole
- Takes weight of the pipeline on the conveyor track
- Endless conveyor possibilities
How does it work?
The borehole is made with an HDD rig that performs a pilot drill and so called push reaming from the side, after which the Pipe-Pusher® pushes the pipe into the borehole.
