Pipe Burst

A Rehabilitation Option for Wet, Dry, or Gas Utilities and Casings

This technique utilizes an existing host pipe as a pathway to upsize or replace with a new pipe or change the type of pipe material. Pipe bursting can be utilized for the rehabilitation of pipelines that carry wet, dry, or gas utilities and casings. 


  • Host pipes can consist of vitrified clay pipe, PVC, cast iron, ductile iron, welded steel, reinforced concrete pipe, and HDPE

  • Common pipe sizes utilizing this method typically range from 4″ to 36″

  • Burst length up to 1000′

  • New installation of fused pipe such as HDPE, Fusible PVC® or other fully restrained pipe

Global Underground can assist in the design engineering and complete this process turn-key.
