Super Excavators continues its deep dive into trenchless technologies with pipe bursting. Pipe bursting is a great method of rehabbing existing pipelines where we pull a new pipe into an existing pipe statically or pneumatically.
We understand the need to complete work with the least disruption possible. The key benefits to pipe bursting include lower surface restoration costs, reduced surface disruptions, minimal traffic disruptions, and unlike CIPP it provides new pipe that increases the life of the system.
This complex procedure requires experienced professionals with a vast knowledge of pipe lining and experience working with assorted tools and equipment. Our skilled teams use sophisticated equipment, including an expander head, pulling rods, a pulling machine, a retaining device and hydraulic generator to replace pipelines with minimal impact on property. Costs depend upon access, material, and location.
What is Pipe Bursting?
Pipe bursting is a trenchless method of replacing buried pipelines, including sewer, water, or even natural gas, that eliminates the need for a traditional construction trench. We replace the trench with launching and receiving pits to reduce property impacts and other disruptions.
Pipe Bursting Benefits
Pipe bursting provides a host of advantages:
- Lower surface restoration costs
- Reduced surface disruptions
- Minimal traffic disruptions and property impacts
- New pipe to increase the lifespan of the system
