An innovative implementation of the jet pump in trenchless technologies
During the presentation, there will be discussed the topic of implementing the jet pump with the hydraulic unit into the microtunneling process. This can help increase the drilling length for small diameter conduits (< DN800) up to several hundred meters. For Direct Pipe technology it will be possible to install steel 20–36” pipelines up to 1000 meters long. What’s important, durability and reliability of a jet pump are significantly greater than in the case of centrifugal pumps.
