Drilling Applications

Horizontal Directional Drilling

Horizontal Directional Drilling or HDD, or Directional Boring, is a steerable trenchless method of drilling, using a drilling rig launched from the surface.  The drilling rig bores a hole in a shallow arc that can be used to install underground pipe, conduit, or cable.

HDD offers many benefits such as elimination of surface disruptions (such as traffic) and minimizes surface damage and repair.  HDD is suitable for a range of job types and works well in a variety of soil conditions.

Our PDC bits offer many benefits for HDD applications including:
  • High penetration rates lower project costs
  • High durability reduces cutter wear
  • Extra circulation port reduces plugging
  • Design delivers faster and smoother drilling
