Midi Auger Boring Machines forced of 1.250–2.050 kN for pipes up to an outer diameter of 1.260mm.

The compact design allows the use with 1m drilling tools and pipes in small excavations or circular shafts. The PBA 125 RS press drilling rig has been designed for drilling from 2 m diameter circular shafts. For use with longer drilling tools and pipes, this Midi class can be extended to the required size using extension frames. Some machine types are available as an LH version with extended press cylinders for increased advance speed. The application range of the press drilling rigs extends up to a maximum jacking length of over 100 m and serves all requirements of the most varied subsoil conditions. In displaceable soils, the pilot tube method is generally used; in heavy soils or rock, pipe control systems with or without hammer systems are used. The Midi class is suitable for the installation of steel protection pipes, temporary casing pipes, concrete, vitrified clay and GRP jacking pipes.

Hydraulic Power Units

The efficient, powerful and compact hydraulic power units of the HS series are specially designed to meet the requirements of auger drilling rigs. Their simple handling, the modern, power-controlled and durable drive technology guarantee smooth operation of the machines. All units in the HS series are soundproofed and comply with the applicable emission limits (US, EU) and safety standards. The electric hydraulic units in particular define a new ecological standard – almost emission-free (exhaust gases, noise). The diesel or electric power units of the HS series for the Midi and Maxi auger drilling rigs have a 3 or 4-circuit hydraulic system. This provides the user with the highest performance in thrust, pull, speed and torque in all drilling situations. The 3rd or 4th circuit is provided for the operation of a bentonite mixing and pumping station, the entire operation is carried out via only one hydraulic unit.

In addition to the classic diesel and electro hydraulic power units PERFORATOR offers energy storage and hybrid-solutions.

These concepts are individually designed and manufactured based on your needs.

Navigation System & Data Recording

The PERFORCAM optical-electronic navigation system is used for pilot tube jacking with and without soil removal (RS-HV pipe control). The system consists of the PERFORLUX optical aiming device, a digital camera unit with GPS receiver – PERFORCAM, a TFT monitor with data logger and a length measuring unit. The newest version PERFORCAM AI offers an artificial intelligence for automated processes, digital recording and navigation of the pilot tube jacking. First, the direction and tilt of the camera unit and the auger drilling rig are adjusted as required. This is controlled via the target optics inserted in the control head or initial auger of the pipe control system, which is optically detected by the camera and displayed on the monitor. The control movement or position change takes place with the pilot bore via a control bevel on the control head and, on the pipe control system, via the deflection of the front pipe, which is also called the cutting ring. The control data stored with the data logger includes all relevant drilling parameters and is continuously recorded.

The PERFORDAT measuring and data recording unit is used to record and log the jacking length and force exerted on the pipeline being laid. All relevant jacking data during the pipe-laying process is displayed and stored in real time. The internal display can be mirrored to your smartphone or desktop device via WiFi. The press force is determined via the pressure transmitters connected to the machine’s press cylinders. The length measurement during the installation of the pipes is mapped via a measuring wheel with rotary encoder. If the permissible jacking forces are exceeded, a visual and acoustic signal is triggered. A water or bentonite pressure and flow measurement is also part of the system. The recorded measured values can be documented after the work is completed.

 

Perforcam

Pilot Tubes & Accessories

PERFORATOR offers two types of pilot tubes. The single-walled pilot tube for precise short bores and the double-walled tube for precise installation of the pilot tubes in long bores. The annular gap between the inner and outer pipe serves as a transport line for lubricant to reduce friction or, optionally, for compressed air to drive controllable hammer systems. The inner pipe guarantees a clear and clean optical path to the PERFORLUX optical aiming device, which is located directly behind the control head or initial auger.

The pilot pipe linkages are available in different lengths and in practical transport racks. Mechanical or hydraulically driven breaking devices allow for easy loosening of the bolted linkage connections. For simple applications, plugged pilot pipe linkages are also available. A wide range of different control heads enables optimum adaptation to the ground.

 

Pipe Control & Accessories

The pipe controls allow for the laying of steel pipes with diameters between 406mm and 1.400mm in any subsoil, from cohesive soils and unconsolidated rock, right through to solid rock, in one operation. The horizontal (RS) and the horizontal and vertical (RS-HV) versions can be precisely controlled by means of articulated pipe sections that can be adjusted hydraulically.

Different soil conditions may require the use of special tools, such as a hammer system. Special initial augers guarantee optimal control behaviour. The control system for the RS pipe controls uses tilt sensors exclusively; the system for the RS-HV pipe controls is supplemented by the PERFORCAM optical-electronic navigation system in addition to the tilt and angle sensors. This
increases the accuracy. Both RS and RS-HV pipe controls work with the PERFORDAT measuring and data recording unit and a hydraulic control unit for the pipe controls.

Bentonite Mixing & Pumping Unit

The BMA 2000 mixing and pumping unit has everything that matters.

Perfect mixing, a tank volume of 2.000 l, high delivery rate and pressure. The BMA 2000 is used for pilot tube jacking and the lubrication of temporary casings and carrier pipes. An additional application is the lubrication and loosening of the excavated material directly at the drill head or auger, powered reaming had (PUD) or powered cutting head (PPS). The PERFORATOR HS hydraulic power units are equipped with an additional hydraulic circuit for the BMA 2000, which makes another power unit superfluous.

Active & Passive Reaming Heads

Reaming heads are the connection of pilot tube to steel pipe or temporary casing pipe. In the case of multi-stage expansion steps, the intermediate reaming head takes over the connection
between the different pipe dimensions. The reaming head provides sufficient space for the drilling material to be picked up by the drill head or the auger. The construction is based on a high-strength structure made of high-quality steels and a state-of-the-art welding process for a long service life.

Actively Driven Powered Reaming Heads (PUD) & Cutting Heads (PPS)

PERFORATOR’s actively driven powered reaming heads (PUD) or cutting heads (PPS) are the ideal basis for pilot tube microtunnelling. These powerful units increase the drilling diameter of
a pilot tube jacking by one or more dimensional steps to match the final pipe diameter. The direction of material transport of the drilled material to the target shaft or pit is reversed. In this way, jacking pipes made of concrete, GRP, vitrified clay or even steel pipes can be laid quickly and efficiently.

Actively powered reaming heads (PUD)
The PUD active powered reaming head uses powerful, hydraulic drives to simultaneously rotate the cutting head and the auger string. The required hydraulic power is supplied via high-pressure hoses through the carrier pipe and operated from the control panel of the auger drilling rig. The PUD is mounted on an installed steel pipe or temporary casing pipe, which already contains the auger string. This allows the installation of carrier pipes in various diameters without the need for additional, larger temporary casing pipes and auger strings. PUDs are a clever and efficient solution for saving drilling accessories and set-up time on the construction site. The PUD product range includes various nominal diameters from ND 250–1.200 mm and delivers maximum torques between 3.500 Nm and 86.000 Nm.

Actively driven powered cutting heads (PPS)
Driven drill heads (PPS) have two independent pump circuits and hydraulic drives that allow the speed and direction of both the cutting head and auger string to be controlled independently. This guarantees full power for the material transport of the drilling material as well as full power at the cutting head at the same time. The PPS system allows for longer and multi-dimensional enlargement in one operation while reversing the direction of material transport of the drilled material to the target shaft or pit. The PPS process allows for the individual selection of the product pipe type and adaptation to almost all soil conditions, high-pressure jet nozzles improve the transport of the drilled material and support the cutting effect at the drill head in cohesive soil conditions. Integrated lubrication ports minimise friction on the carrier pipe.

Augers, Temporary Casing Pipes & Cutting Heads

Temporary casing pipes and the augers are mounted directly behind the reaming head and the pilot tube string. The reaming head enlarges the borehole from the pilot tube diameter to the casing pipe or carrier pipe diameter. The augers transport the drilling material into the starting pit. Depending on the carrier pipe diameter, several expansion steps are required.

Temporary casing pipes and augers are available for various diameters, pipe lengths and connection types. In addition to the standard delivery programme, we also offer groundwater augers (sluice augers) and hollow drill augers. All sizes and types can be designed and manufactured to customer requirements.

Groundwater augers (sluice augers) prevent uncontrolled discharge of the drilled material at high groundwater levels and flowing soil types. They can be used for both unguided and guided drilling, where they are installed directly between the pilot tubes and the casing pipes. Groundwater levels of 4m above invert level are therefore possible.

The groundwater auger has two bulkheads at the front and back with an opening angle of 100 degrees. A multi-flight auger is located between the bulkheads to allow for the continuous transport of excavated material. When the first bulkhead is closed at the front, the second front bulkhead and the rear bulkhead are open. This causes one side of the chamber to always be open and the other closed. In this way, the drilling material can be permanently transported away without soil escaping in an uncontrolled manner. Groundwater augers minimise the risk of cavities and subsidence during drilling and are essential guarantees of success in difficult ground conditions.

 

Hollow drill augers are usually used for simultaneous pilot tube widening bores. This involves drilling a series of hollow drill augers over the pre-installed pilot tube while simultaneously installing the steel pipe along the drilling axis. The method is often used for blind holes and, in good ground conditions, for boreholes up to 1.000 mm where multi-stage drilling is not required.

Cutting Heads

Cutting heads loosen and transport the drilling material. The type of drill head to be selected depends primarily on the respective ground conditions, the technique used and the diameter of the pipe to be laid. Regardless of whether clay, sand, loam, gravel or solid rock, the right drill head guarantees drilling success. Standard drill heads are trench wing cutters and wing cutters; for hard rock drilling, hammer drill bits are also used in combination with pneumatic hammer systems.

RBZ Pipe Bursting Systems

Pipe bursting systems
With the PERFORATOR RBZ-series bursting systems, pipes can be renewed and renovated in an environmentally friendly manner and without trenching in old routes. Depending on the requirements and the damage to the old pipeline, various methods can be used.

The static pipe bursting method is used for the renewal of pipelines in old routes. Regardless of whether it is a gravity or pressure pipeline, the old pipeline is cut into segments by breaking or cutting, and displaced radially into the surrounding soil. At the same time, a new pipe of the same or larger dimension is pulled in. The bursting method is suitable for almost all old and new pipe materials.

The pressing/drawing process involves the complete replacement of existing pipelines in a single operation. The old pipe is completely removed from the ground. The new pipe can be drawn in with the same or larger dimensions.

The auxiliary pipe method is also a route-equivalent, complete replacement of existing pipelines in two work steps. It is particularly suitable for old pipes made of cast iron, ductile cast iron, steel and fibre cement. As with other same-route renewal procedures, the new pipe can be pulled in in the same or larger dimension. In the relining process with annular gap, pipe strings or individual pipes are inserted into the existing pipelines. The pipe dimension is reduced and the annular gap is filled depending on the process variant. In relining processes without an annular gap, a PE pipe string with a reduced cross-section is inserted into the old pipeline. In the reduction process, the new pipe later lies close to the old pipe wall (close-fit). Both process variants are suitable for both gravity and pressure pipes.

The RBZ series comprises two machine sizes. This means that pipelines up to a pipe diameter of 1.000mm can be laid trenchlessly.

KOBUS Pipe Puller Technology

The KOBUS Pipe Puller technology has been developed for trenchless house connection renewal using the static winding method. The method can be used to renew gas and water house connection pipes made of copper, lead, steel and polyethylene (PE) from DN 15 (1/2”) to DN 32 (1 1/4”) mm without trenching. The sectional length is up to 25 m depending on the subsoil conditions and the local conditions.

Polyethylene (PE) pipes up to a diameter of DN 40 (1 1/2”) are used as new pipes. The old pipe can be replaced with a new pipe that has the same dimensions or that has larger dimensions. Both standard pipes in SDR 11 and pipes with protective properties can be used. It is also possible to install a protective pipe for the installation of the product pipeline.

The KOBUS KPP series comprises two device types:
KPP 300 – This machine is a stand-alone solution for independent handling, modular in design and powered by a separate hydraulic power unit. The maximum tensile force is 100 kN and therefore allows for a range of applications for shorter distances and smaller diameters. The modular design also allows for use in areas with limited accessibility (e.g. gardens and buildings) and transport in a box truck or flatbed truck.


KPP 400 – The Pipe Puller is the all-in-one version as an attachment for the mini excavator from the 1.6 t class. It is driven via the auxiliary hydraulics, safely from the driver’s seat. The maximum tensile force is 200 kN and allows for the full range of applications. The drive via the mini excavator reduces the investment volume and avoids additional aggregates on site. The transport takes place on the trailer of the mini excavator or on the loading area of the small truck. The low weight of just 320 kg allows for the use of existing transport concepts.

Vertical Auger Drive (VAB)

Attachment augers have proven themselves for many years, especially in explosive ordnance exploration, but are also widely used in pile driving and geotechnics as well as in gardening and landscaping (planting, pile and foundation holes).

Vertical auger attachments can be quickly and easily mounted on many carriers such as mobile excavators, loader cranes, tractors or loaders. With an extensive range of tools, augers can be used universally for many applications and soil types.
