PIPE INSTALLATION WITHOUT EXCAVATION. THE BADGER SYSTEM

TENDIDOS DE TUBERIAS SIN ZANJA. EL SISTEMA BADGER

The Badger system is a modern process of installing pipes or cables under the ground without having to excavate trenches. The method can be easily adapted to loose terrain and to the installation of pipes with a diameter between 76 and 300 mm. It requires tracked vehicles equipped with a kind of plough, the role of which is to dig a furrow in the soil. Guiding and levelling devices are also parts of the system. /TRRL/
