Pipe Steering System RS-VH

The RS-VH has been designed for the accurate installation of pipe systems ranging from 660mm OD up to 1,000mm OD by conventional auger boring being equipped with bi-directional steering.

The RS-VH has two sets of steering jacks which enable movement of the unit in both the horizontal and vertical direction all being controlled at the auger boring rig by means of a joy stick control which receives information from inclinometers mounted around the pipe steering section.

The RS-VH is simply set up in the auger boring machine to line and level then the inclinometers are set to zero on a screen at the controls, as the pipe is bored forward the operator steers the pipe keeping the reading on zero thus following the correct line and grade.

Further to this an optical electronic target is mounted inside the cutting head which displays onto a conventional pilot guided auger boring navigation system further increasing accuracy.

The system can be equipped with various cutting head configurations to suit most ground conditions.
