How it Works
The process of pipe bursting provides utilizes hydraulic pumps, replacement pipes and bursting heads.
A bursting head is attached to new pipe, which travels through the existing damaged pipe. The tapered bursting head fragments the existing pipe as it passes through. The new pipe is attached to the bursting head, and is smoothly led through the unoccupied space left behind by the fragmented pipe. Trenchless technology uses entry and exit points, centered on the beginning and end of the existing, damaged pipe. Pipe bursting can provide a replacement for a damaged section or the complete replacement of damaged pipe, and is the preferred treatment where pipe repair would not resolve conditions such as advanced pipe deterioration.
