Microtunneling machine from Akkerman Inc.

Akkerman’s Microtunnel Boring Machines (MTBM) install pipe in ground conditions that are generally below the water table. Microtunneling is referred to as non-manned, remote controlled, continuously supported pipejacking.

Applications most suitable for this method are gravity flow pipelines requiring precise line and grade in poor soil conditions. As the only US manufacturer of microtunneling equipment, our systems are a fusion of high productivity, dependability and accuracy in a wide range of soil conditions without the need for dewatering. Akkerman manufactures MTBMs for installation of pipe in the 30" -96" (762-2,438 mm) OD range.

Microtunneling Control Container: The Control Container is the control center for all microtunneling functions. It houses the control console, motor control centers for slurry pumps, MTBM drive motor and the bulkhead panel for electrical and communications connections.
