Slurry System

When using pressurised slurry MTBMs, good slurry management is important to ensure the success of the microtunnelling project. 

Slurry is a water based fluid that flows through a closed loop slurry system to transport excavated materials from the MTBM to a separation tank on the surface. Here the slurry and excavated materials are separated, allowing the slurry water to be redistributed back to the MTBM for continued excavation.
