Prime Horizontal introduces the latest in a long line of innovations for the horizontal directional drilling (HDD) market, a guidance tool for unrivaled accuracy; the ParaTrack Gyro Module.


With no concern of magnetic interference from nearby active utility lines, shore piles, ship traffic or any other transportation activity, drilling may be carried out confidently, regardless of surrounding conditions. The ParaTrack Gyro Module runs in conjunction with the ParaTrack Steering Tool, providing the ability to tie in with the entire ParaTrack System of tools and software.

The ParaTrack Gyro Module is a north seeking gyro system that is especially effective for initial surface entry, while absolute position may then be verified via the ParaTrack-2 Guide Wire or Beacon Tracker, providing confidence that the bore is measured accurately along the bore path as well as relative to the planned exit location prior to punch out.


Using the Gyro Module, Prime Horizontal can handle vibrational and magnetic interference much better than in the past. Separate shock absorbing tools are unnecessary.


Ideal for intersects in areas with no Surface coil. No need for calibration every two hours. And no issues with import and export into various countries as the Gyro can be hand carried and transported easily in a rifle case.
