Pipe Bursting

Pipe Bursting is the trenchless method of replacing or upsizing buried pipelines without the need for a traditional open cut. The latter can lead to all sorts of types of damage to pipes including: breakage, incrustation, discharge obstacles, position deviations (misalignment, split sockets), tears, leakages and mechanical wear and tear.

At Eps Trenchless Installations Ltd we have become experienced in successfully offering the following cost-effective trench-less pipe bursting services:

EXPANDIT

Expandit replaces existing pipes without excavation and can be operated from small excavations or existing manholes. With Expandit services we can increase pipe diameters by 50% and we can burst through clayware, pitch fibre, concrete, asbestos cement, cast iron and UPVC pipe. There is minimal environmental impact and noise output is greatly reduced. We can replace fresh water pipes, gas mains and sewer pipes using expandit services.

MINIBURST

Miniburst is perfect for pipe replacement in difficult locations. It can be operated from existing manholes and new pipes have a design life three or four times that of a repaired pipe. With Miniburst, we can replace pipes with a diameter of 75mm, 100mm and 150mm and pipes up to 50m in length. With the Miniburst system we can burst through clayware, pitch fibre, concrete, asbestos cement and other common materials. We can replace fresh water pipes, gas mains and sewer pipes.

MANHOLE BURSTING

Our system for manhole bursting ensures that there is little environmental disruption, lower costs and reduced programme time. This is because the system can be operated entirely from within existing manholes chambers. We can replace fresh water pipes, gas mains and sewer pipes using the manhole bursting system.
