First used in the early 1980s, pipe bursting is a pipe replacement method that is continuing to revolutionize repair methods around the world. This trenchless process of replacing buried pipelines—including water, sewer, and natural gas pipes—eliminates the need for traditional construction trenches. Instead, ‘launching & receiving pits’ take the place of the trenches required by conventional pipe laying. Five vital pieces of equipment are used in a typically pipe bursting operation: (1) the expander head, (2) a pulling machine, (3) pulling rods, (4) a retaining device, and finally, (5) a hydraulic powerpack. Pipe bursting is becoming more and more popular in the US. Awareness and usage has increased in the recent years. In some areas where pipe bursting is familiar, bigger volume jobs are increasing.
The method has become so well regarded that many jobs are now being bid as ‘pipe burst only.’ A majority of these bursting-specific projects are upsize jobs involving bursting integral lines that are too small for handling current flow levels. Re-zoning especially in rural areas has also caused the demand for pipe bursting to go up. If a city decides to rezone a residential area for high-rise condominiums, for example, the existing lines—which are designed for small residential structures—have to be replaced. Pipe bursting can make the process of upsizing for this bigger capacity requirement quick and economical.
