ADVANCED TRENCHLESS TECHNOLOGY
More than 3.200 exhibitors and almost half a million visitors from all over the world: bauma has lost none of its appeal and also impressively reflects the performance and innovative power of the construction machinery industry in 2022. This was also true for TRACTO’s future technology. Entirely in line with the bauma 2022 leading topics „Construction methods and materials of tomorrow” and “Zero emissions in the construction machinery sector”, the solutions for trenchless pipe constructions under the motto “We are building the future”, were truly in great demand. In addition to classic products, such as the GRUNDOMAT soil displacement hammer, this included some much-acclaimed new developments, which make the already very gentle trenchless construction method even lower in emissions and more efficient – for example, an extremely powerful HDD rock drilling bore rig or electric drive units for various NODIG systems.
The GRUNDOPIT PS60 is a small HDD rig that packs exceptional performance into a compact package. The fluid-assisted mini drill rig is widely used for domestic property connections for gas, water and electricity pipes, along with glass fibre cables and sewer pressure pipes. Launched from a small pit, the HDD rig ensures a quick and economical trenchless connection; eliminating the need for full civils work.
Allen Watson Ltd is an Essex-based no-dig specialist working in the rail, water, oil, gas, electricity and telecoms sectors. The company was recently asked to look at a domestic drilling project at a large house in Surrey set in acres of fields and approached by a half mile long drive. An expensive, new resin driveway surface had just been laid along the full length of the drive when the homeowner noticed a leak and pooling water. A sewer pipe running under newly laid resin had been ruptured during the works.
TRACTO has been awarded the seal "Germany's Innovation Leader 2022" by the F.A.Z. Institute for its particularly high innovative strength. The award is based on the results of a study conducted by the economic research institute Prognos AG on behalf of the subsidiary of the renowned 'Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung' newspaper. A total of 180,000 German companies, from world-famous brands to hidden champions, were examined for their innovative capacity.
How do pipelines for water and gas, or indeed fiber optic cables, get under the ground? The obvious way is by digging a trench. But TRACTO-TECHNIK GmbH & Co. KG offers a different solution—using equipment for trenchless pipe laying that doesn’t require tearing up streets and sidewalks. TRACTO has continuously refined this technology. Today, the company takes advantage of big data to offer innovative, digital solutions to customers around the world, to increase reliability, and to optimize drilling processes.
The TRACTO GRUNDOPIT PS40 Mini HDD rig was the star turn at leading leisure park, Chessington World of Adventures, recently when it was craned into place to complete the underground installation of two x 110mm drainage pipes.
