Thrust Boring

Thrust Boring is new in Pakistan,it is a more convenient way for laying piplines underground in favourable condition's. ZUCS is now offering thrust boring with high quality American machinery.

Thrust boring, or auger boring, is a jack and boredrilling method typically used for installing steel pipe casing beneath an existing surface where the risk of hole collapse whilst installing larger diameters has been identified or where the grade is critical.

Thrust boring, is typically performed by placing an auger equipped with a cutting head inside a 200mm to 1500mm diameter steel pipe. The auger is then attached to the rotation shaft of a thrust boring machine. Steel pipe casing is typically installed in 6 metre lengths so an entry pit at least 10.6 metres long is required to accommodate the combined length of the pipe and thrust boring machinery.
