Pipe bursting trenchless systems allow you to install new pipelines in the same or larger diameter than the original pipe with minimum excavation. Pipe bursting can be used to replace deteriorated wastewater, water, and gas piping with high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe, among other piping materials.
HDPE pipe cane be used in place of any original material, including vitrified clay, cast iron, concrete, reinforced concrete, asbestos cement, and PVC. This high molecular weight pipe, available from 4 inches in diameter up through 36 inches, is corrosion-resistant and offers excellent flow characteristics.
The use of continuous, fusion-welded pipe eliminates problem areas associated with joints such as leakage or infiltration, and permits installation in smooth, jointless lengths.
