Two Inch Bumpers for Bundled Road Bore

2 Inch Bumper System for Bundled Directional Drill

    If you've browsed this blog before, you've undoubtedly seen that we have numerous successful cases of our 1" Bumper System being used.  From time to time, what we've heard from end users and engineers is that they love our 1" system, but they would love a 2" system even more.  It took a little development time and it took a few different systems that were ultimately ruled out during our evaluation process, but we are now comfortable that we have come up with a 2" bumper system that will offer the same great performance as our proven 1" system has.

In this case, pipe would enter the bore offscreen to the right.

This bumper has an OD of 5.5" and is locked in place on the 3.5" pipeline.
     This material has been used previously and successfully held a 1" bumper in place.  For this system, we have created a star stepped bumper which will ensure shear and stress forced for this 2" bumper will be very similar to those experienced and survived on the 1" bumpers in the past.  To be on the safe side, we have increased the bond area of the sleeve to offer more square inches of bond, which will improve shear resistance even beyond what was needed for the 1" bumpers. 

     This is a great system.  With questions, or to schedule a demonstration, contact us today ( / 936/321-3333)
