What is Pipe Bursting?

Pipe bursting is a replacement method employed when the damage in the pipeline is too extensive for relining services to be effective. Pipe bursting utilizes a new incoming pipe, a pipe bursting head attachment, and a chain and pulley system. The chain is fed through the old pipe and attached to the pipe bursting head. The pipe bursting head is then attached to the end of the incoming pipe. As the incoming pipe is pulled directly into the old pipeline, the original pipe is split into fragments, which are pushed into the surrounding soil. The new pipe replaces the old, using the original tunnel underground.
