Bundled Directional Drilling Damage Prevention
|Installed BBS - 2" wide / 1" tall bumpers to protect your pipeline|
|Daylight can be seen in the gap created by our BBS system on a 16" pipeline.|
Pulling a pipe bundle through a boring hole puts some pretty extreme forces on a pipe coating. The bundle can see experience unexpected bumps and bruises along the way as well. Picture for a moment a bundled directional drill consisting of a 20" line and two 12" lines. Each of those lines is going to weigh hundreds of pounds per meter. What happens when there is some kind of a collision underground caused by a hiccup in the pull; a rock underneath the bundle or a slip of some kind out in the staging area?
Beyond that, what about after the bundle is in place? Do you want your pipelines resting directly on top and touching one another? Isn't some space between lines a much better option for cathodic protection systems? I think the answer to all of these questions is pretty clear.
Shoot me an email and I'll shoot you an electronic copy of our BBS literature. It shows installation steps, technical details and before and after photos of our system. The bumpers speak for themselves and I think you'll probably agree after looking over the photos (firstname.lastname@example.org)
