Microtunneling and Pilot Tube Microtunneling

  • 7 hour course, no prerequisites

Micro­tun­nel­ing and Pilot Tube Micro­tun­nel­ing (PTMT) are eco­nom­i­cal­ly viable devel­op­ments in pipe instal­la­tion that do not require exten­sive sur­face dis­rup­tions. This work­shop will pro­vide stu­dents with a com­pre­hen­sive overview of the lead­ing tech­nolo­gies behind micro­tun­nel­ing and PTMT. Par­tic­i­pants will gain under­stand­ing of the pipe instal­la­tion process and why micro­tun­nel­ing is becom­ing a lead­ing choice for the instal­la­tion process.
