What is a Horizontal Directional Drilling Machine?
A horizontal directional drilling machine is a construction machine that lays a variety of underground utilities (pipes, cables, etc.) without excavating the ground surface. Horizontal directional drilling rigs are widely used in the construction of flexible pipelines for water supply, electricity, telecommunications, natural gas, coal gas, and petroleum. YG Machinery has high quality horizontal directional drilling machine for sale.
The horizontal directional drilling machine is suitable for sand, clay, and other ground conditions. Horizontal directional drilling equipment is not suitable for high groundwater levels and pebble formations. The working environment temperature is -15℃~+45℃. If you are looking for a reliable horizontal directional drilling machine manufacturer, YG Machinery will be your ideal choice. Contact us o get the horizontal directional drilling machine price now.
Horizontal Directional Drilling Technology
Horizontal directional drilling technology is a new construction technology that combines the directional drilling technology of the petroleum industry with the traditional pipeline construction method. HDD horizontal directional drilling technology has the advantages of fast construction speed, high construction accuracy, and low cost. Horizontal directional drilling equipment has also achieved rapid development in more than ten years. YG horizontal directional drilling equipment has become an emerging industry in developed countries.

Horizontal directional drilling machines’ development trend is moving towards large-scale and miniaturization. Adapt to hard rock operations, self-contained anchoring systems. Automatic drill pipe stacking and extraction, automatic drill pipe connection automatic lubrication. Anti-shock system and other automatic operation functions, ultra-depth guided monitoring. And application development of characteristics such as a wide range. Horizontal directional drilling equipment is generally suitable for steel pipes and PE pipes with diameters of φ300~φ1200mm. The maximum laying length of horizontal directional drilling technology can reach 1500m. The horizontal directional drilling machine is suitable for a variety of soil conditions from soft soil to hard rock and has broad application prospects.
Introduction of the Horizontal Directional Drilling Machine System
Horizontal directional drilling machines of various specifications include drilling rig system, power system, direction control system, mud system, drilling tools, and auxiliary tools. Here is their structure and functions introduction.
Drilling Rig System
The drilling rig system is the main body of drilling operation and towing operation through equipment. It is composed of the main drilling rig, turntable, etc. The main drilling rig is placed on the drilling frame to complete the drilling operation and towing operation. The turntable is installed on the front end of the main machine of the drilling rig, connected to the drill rod. And by changing the rotation of the turntable and the output speed and torque, the requirements of different operating conditions can be met.

The power source includes a hydraulic power source and generator. The power source is to provide high-pressure hydraulic oil for the drilling rig system as the power of the drilling rig. The generator provides electricity for supporting electrical equipment and construction site lighting.
Direction Control System
The direction control system is a directional tool to guide the drill bit to drill correctly through the computer to monitor and control the specific position and other parameters of the drill bit in the ground. Due to the control of the system, the drill bit can drill according to the design curve. There are two types of hand-held wireless and wired control systems.
The mud system includes a mud mixing tank, a mud pump, and a mud pipeline to provide the drilling rig system with mud suitable for drilling conditions.
Drilling Tools And Auxiliary Tools
Various tools are used for drilling and reaming during drilling. Drilling tools mainly include drill pipes, drill bits, mud motors, reamers, cutters, and other tools suitable for various geological conditions. Auxiliary tools include snap rings, swivel joints, and drag heads of various pipe diameters.
Construction Characteristics of Horizontal Directional Drilling Equipment
The directional drilling crossing construction will not hinder traffic, will not damage the green space, vegetation. HDD machines will not affect the normal life and working order of shops, hospitals, schools, and residents. Horizontal directional drilling machine solves the interference of traditional excavation construction on residents’ lives, traffic and environment, destruction and adverse effects of surrounding building foundations.
Modern traversing equipment has high traversing accuracy, easy to adjust the laying direction, and is buried in depth. And the arc-shaped laying distance of the pipeline is long, which can fully meet the design requirements and the buried depth. HDD drill machine can make the pipeline bypass underground obstacles.
The buried depth of the urban pipe network is generally more than three meters. When crossing the river, the buried depth is generally 9-18 meters under the riverbed. Therefore, the horizontal directional drilling machine is used to cross, which has no impact on the surrounding environment. At the same time, a YG horizontal directional drilling rig does not damage the landform and the environment.
When the horizontal directional drilling rig crosses the construction, there is no water or underwater operation. So HDD horizontal directional drilling does not affect the navigation of the river. Meanwhile, it does not damage the dykes and riverbed structures on both sides of the river. And the construction is not restricted by the season. HDD rig has a short construction period and a high success rate features.
Low Construction Cost
Compared with other construction methods, the entry and exit speed of an HDD drilling machine is fast. You can adjust it flexibly on construction sites, especially in urban construction. It can fully demonstrate its superiority, and the construction area is small. The construction cost is low, and the construction speed is fast.
When a large river crosses, because the pipeline is buried 9-18 meters below the stratum, there is little oxygen and other corrosive substances inside the stratum. So it has the function of natural anti-corrosion and heat preservation, which can ensure the pipeline running time longer. Check here to know the HDD machine price list.
