Pipe Bursting is a technique for replacement
of existing pipes. The existing pipe, once
burst, becomes the guide path for the new
pipe being installed.
This technique bursts the old pipe and in so doing
displaces the fragmented old pipe into the
surrounding soil. This creates a hole of roughly the
same dimension as the original. If a larger diameter
pipe is to be installed a larger 'expanding cone' is
used to increase the size of the hole. Once done,
the new pipe is pushed or pulled into position.
Pipe bursting is popular in urban areas where
congestion due to existing services sharing the same
space under the surface is a problem. Bursting must
be used very carefully where sub surface crowding
could put other lines at risk due to the pressure of
the bursting head.
