Pipe Bursting Services in Tasmania

AJ Water can use a pipe bursting technique to replace or upsize pipes efficiently.

Utilities such as water, sewer, gas pipes often need replacing, with most located in urban areas, under buildings, roads, driveways and gardens, and are often surrounded by other services. Replacement is often not viable with traditional trenching methods.

To burst the pipe, a steel bursting head is driven by a pneumatic hammer, which is run by an air compressor. The hammer is inside the host pipe, and attached to the front of the hammer is a 14 tonne winch with variable load ratings depending on pipe size and length. The bursting head splits the host pipe and the expander displaces the fragmented host pipe and compacts the surrounding soil while the new pipe is pulled in simultaneously.
