Pipe Bursting

Pipe bursting makes it possible to make the size of existing pipes larger without excavating and replacing the pipe. Pipe bursting involves a bursting tool which pulls a polyethylene pipe through an old pipeline of equal or smaller size. The old pipeline is shattered as the new pipeline is pulled through, with the broken up pieces pushed out into the soil. This trenchless process is perfect for enlarging the size of utility pipes, existing sewers or other pipelines in high profile areas without the need for excavation.

An ideal solution for upsizing capacity of existing lines ranging from 6 to 36 inches in diameter.
