Pipe Ramming
Pipe ramming is a versatile technology for trenchless installation of steel casings — in adverse soil conditions. Another EJM Pipe Services specialty, pipe ramming, works in any direction from conventional horizontal pipe ramming to vertical pile driving. Because there's usually a minimal need or no need for backstops, there's more flexibility working in confined spaces or where ramming angles simply wouldn't allow a backstop.

With regular pipe ramming, air pressure is customarily used to expel the spoils inside the casing. However, depending on the size of the project we can also remove spoils using many different techniques. With EJM Pipe Services' expertise and other equipment, we have even greater flexibility to couple ramming with other technologies. For example, we can use our auger to clean out casings which have been rammed into place.

Pipe ramming can also assist directional drilling applications where rocky soils are present. The rammer creates a "clean hold" so the directional drill can more effectively do its job.

You can count on EJM Pipe Services to precisely tailor ramming and other equipment to meet the demands on your job site.
 
Auger Boring
While new trenchless technologies have been developed in recent years, horizontal auger boring is still a tried and true method for utility installation. We take pride in sending you experienced crews and well maintained machines. All come completely outfitted with every piece of necessary equipment for diameters from 8" to 60". You’ll receive instructions on pit preparation, length, width, depth, and so on. We’ll inspect it prior to drilling to make sure it’s safe and ready for our crew.

In addition to auger boring, we offer extrusion drilling, for soil dewatering and horizontal drains. When easements or access are limited, a light and compact machine could be the answer. Whether in the wide open spaces or in tight quarters, our extrusion drilling rig can provide bores from 2" to 24".
 
Project Consulting
With our clients becoming increasingly busy and spread out, they often don't have the time or manpower to plan and layout every job. Our experienced experts will plan and design your project keeping in mind everything down to the smallest detail. We consider site conditions, location, soil, budget and time frame when planning any project — big or small.
 
Tunneling
If you need to move people or product through tunnels, square or round, call on EJM Pipe Services. We can tunnel just about anywhere: under railbeds, roadways or buildings, through hills in rock or dirt.

Tunnel casings can be concrete or steel. While recent tunnel projects have been up to 147" in diameter, we can handle tunneling in any size, for any purpose, and in any place. Our new rock head bores through solid rock in diameters to 66" with other sizes available depending on your project needs. EJM Pipe Services can design and install your tunneling solution.

As with any of our services, your project starts with expert planning and consideration of site conditions and characteristics. EJM Pipe Services then follows through with an installation that meets your needs.
 
Microtunneling
Application:

A trenchless method of constructing new sewer and water pipe without requiring man-entry. Typically used for pipes ranging from 18-inches to 54-inches in diameter and 40- to 50-feet in depth.

Advantages:

Our microtunneling method uses a "closed system;" water and mud removed from the ground are separated, decreasing the risk of environmental contamination. Because we complete microtunneling projects using safe, laser-guided equipment, there is minimal disruption to surface activities. Microtunneling is particularly effective in below-groundwater conditions and unconsolidated soils and where above- and below-ground obstructions exist.
 
Pipe Jacking
Application:

A specialized, man-entry tunneling method used to install new factory-manufactured pipes with minimal surface disruption. While used primarily for new sewer construction, it also can be used to rehabilitate and reline sewers and other pipe systems with diameters ranging from 54- to 120-inches.

Advantages:

Pipe jacking is an economical alternative to and much less disruptive than using open-cut construction to install new underground pipes. Because it is performed with a closed system, pipe jacking decreases the risk of environmental contamination during construction.
