Pipe Bursting

Pipe Bursting is a trenchless method of replacing existing buried sewer or water pipes without the need to excavate the surface of the land. There will be a launching and receiving pit will replace the traditional method of pipe-laying. Pipe bursting may also be used to expand pipeline carrying capacity by replacing smaller pipes with larger ones, or "upsizing." Extensive proving work by the gas and water industries has demonstrated the feasibility of upsizing gas mains, water mains and sewers. There are various types of pipe bursting systems, including pneumatic, hydraulic expansion and static pull systems. Modern pipe bursting technology is respectful of nearby utilities, pavement and structures that might otherwise be damaged in a dig and customers can save time and money on sewer line replacement and water main renewal.
