What You Should Know About Thrust Boring Guidance Systems

Home » What You Should Know About Thrust Boring Guidance Systems

When your crew needs to install cables, pipes, or conduits in locations incompatible with excavation, a thrust boring guidance system ensures accuracy and precision. This trenchless equipment allows you to efficiently install underground pipelines in a wide range of soil, environmental, and weather conditions.

Here’s what you need to know about the durable directional thrust boring equipment available at Pow-R Mole Trenchless Solutions.

Intuitive Locating

Our Falcon directional thrust boring guidance systems use target-in-the-box locating. This intuitive method of locating shows you the exact position of the boring head. This allows you to make micro adjustments to the head’s trajectory for more accurate and precise installations.

Choose Analog or Digital Technology

When you use the low-cost analog technology guidance system, the receiver sends information to the transmitter through the 32.8 kHz frequency. With this information, your crew can steer around underground obstacles in compressible soil. The analog guidance system provides accurate locations within inches. When in digital mode, the guidance systems provide real-time orientation, pitch, grade, and rotation updates. Select percentage or degree readouts for the digital display.

Easy to Operate

The guidance systems for the PD-2, PD-4, and PD-6 ensure easy operation. Their ergonomic design makes them comfortable to hold, even in extreme weather conditions. The picture-driven menu avoids confusion when changing speed, roll, and pitch. A single push of the button provides clear details about depth, roll pitch, and offset.

Whether you choose a digital or analog guidance system for your directional thrust boring tools, we’ve got your back. Our expert team rapidly responds to questions and provides training and tips on how to make the most of these essential guidance systems.
