NO-DIGTEC offers an extensive line of tooling for various types of Water Main and Wastewater Collection pipe rehabilitation replacement projects.
Ductile slitters are available to replace non-fracturable pipes such as ductile iron and steel. NO-DIGTEC can custom build tooling to satisfy each projects’ individual needs. PIPE BURSTING offers many advantages compared to open-cut installations and hosts numerous economical and environmental potentials.
Static pipe bursting is an effective cost saving method to replace existing water lines without the need for open-cut digging. Static pipe bursting follows the existing utility line path using rods to pull a conical-shaped expansion head through the existing line. Thus, reducing the risk of damage to conflicting utilities located in the area and eliminating up to 85 percent of the excavation and restoration work compared to the open-cut method.
Pneumatic pipe bursting is an effective cost saving method to replace existing sewer lines without the need for open-cut digging used primarily for replacing gravity-fed pipes relying on a percussion hammer action to help the expander head break the host pipe. A winch located at ground level maintains constant tension on the bursting head with use of a thick metal cable. Pneumatic pipe-bursting is an effective cost saving method to replace existing sewer lines without the need for open-cut digging used run through local properties minimizing disruption to buildings, roadways, parking lots and mature landscape.
