About Trenchless Technology

Trenchless technology, also known as “no-dig pipeline technology”, is a method of installing or repairing underground piping without the need for trenching.

It offers a way of working to enable minimal disturbance to the site you are working on, for example a busy main road to a customer’s garden. By only having one launching and one receiving pit this eliminates the need to excavate long trenches and reinstate the existing road/pavement etc.

Trenchless technology is used in a variety of applications, including water and sewer lines, gas and oil pipelines, and communications and power cables.

Trenchless pipe technologies offer many benefits over traditional trench digging methods such as minimising disruption in the areas where work is being carried out.

Advantages of Trenchless Technology

There are many advantages of trenchless technology over traditional trenching methods. Trenchless solutions are less disruptive to the surrounding environment and doesn’t require the same amount of digging, trenching, or excavating.

This type of technology is also more efficient and can be completed in a shorter time frame. In addition, trenchless technology is less expensive and can be used in a variety of settings, including difficult-to-reach or sensitive areas.

You can read more in our in-depth guide to trenchless technology and learn how it can help your project.

Trenchless Equipment

There are a variety of trenchless solutions available to suit different trenchless applications. Below are some of the most common types of trenches technology equipment

  • Impact Moles – Used to create underground tunnels for utilities without having to dig a trench. Suitable for displaceable soils such as sand, loam, and gravel.
  • Pipe Bursting Equipment – Used to replace an existing pipe by breaking it up and pushing the pieces out of the way as a new pipe is pulled through. This trenchless method is often used for sewer line replacement and is an extremely effective and economical form of pipe rehabilitation

Our range includes pipe bursting equipment, impact moles, cobra conduit rods and tow heads, with other equipment available on request.
