Tremendous Benefits of EPB...

  • Control and regulation of face pressure
  • Control of face water
  • Preventing over and under mining
  • Small surface plant

But sometimes there are problems...
Tunnels have to be dug in ground where the EPB TBM needs a little help, such as:

  • Alternating hard and soft ground
  • Mixed face
  • Wet running sand
  • Fragile surface and underground assets
  • Dry non-flowing sands and clays
  • Gravels, pebbles, boulders
  • All of the above

Mudtech have the solutions
Mudtech EPB foam and polymer spoil conditioning works by:

  • Converting muck as it is mined into a good EPB or pumpable consistency
  • Allowing mixed face (for example, wet running sand plus hard rock) to be mined efficiently
  • Making a waterproofing plug in the screw
  • Mining sticky clay with a rock head
