Pipe Ramming in North Dakota and Minnesota

Ellingson Companies provides pipe ramming in Minnesota, North Dakota, the Upper Midwest, and throughout the Nation

Pipe Ramming is a process where steel pipe is installed with a pneumatic hammer. Grade can be set and controlled from the launch
pit and distances of up to 150 feet can be achieved. This process allows installation as an alternative to the traditional jack and boring
installation. As the steel line is installed, the soil is forced into the interior of the pipe. Once the pipe is installed to its desired locations the soil is removed from inside. Typical application would include casing pipe and culverts among many others.
