IP– steel pipe ramming machines

Convincing power

Whenever ground displacement is not possible because of lack of cover, soft or loose ground pipe ramming is the answer. An open ended steel pipe is rammed through the ground displacing soil only to the wall thickness of the pipe being used. The inner core of spoil is then blown out using air or water. Using the appropriate type of IP–Mole steel pipes ranging from DN 70 to DN 1400 may be layed up to 60 m depending on the conditions of the ground.
