Definition - What does Gigant mean?
Gigant is a pneumatic pipe ramming machine. It is a model manufactured within the Grundoram® line of products produced by TT Technologies.
The Gigant is a mid-range pipe rammer in terms of size and power. Pipe ramming is a method used to install pipe in the trenchless construction industry.
Trenchlesspedia explains Gigant
One way to install underground pipe is simply to push it into the ground. That is the idea behind pipe ramming. The force on the pipe must be enough to advance the pipe through the soil, and the pipe must be strong enough to withstand the impact. Pipe ramming machines come in various sizes and capabilities. The Grundoram® Gigant is a reliable choice for many trenchless construction projects.
The parameters are different for each of the Grundoram® pipe ramming tools from TT Technologies. The Gigant has a diameter of 10.5 inches (270 mm.) and a length of 79 inches (2010 mm.). It weighs 1540 pounds (699 kg.) and has a recommended pipe diameter of 15-32 inches (400-800 mm.).
Pipe ramming can be used in horizontal, vertical, and angled applications. The selection of the Grundoram® Gigant for a trenchless construction project depends primarily on the pipe diameter and length.
