Pipe Bursting

Pipe Bursting

Pipe bursting might be a new term to most people. Pipe bursting is the perfect technique to use for the treatment and replacement of different utility lines such as water, sewer, gas, and power. This technique is used to burst clay, cast iron, concrete, and PVC pipe and is ideal for ageing and older lines that are in heavily congested areas. It is done using a winch that pulls a heavy duty polyethylene pipe through the old line of equal or smaller size. The tool being pulled through is shattering the old line as it goes through, clearing the space for the replacement. As the space clears, the new pipe is being pulled through, replacing the old as it gets shattered. The only limitation to pipe bursting is that the pipe needs to be able to fracture and the soil surrounding the pipe must be able to absorb the old fragments.
