Hydraulic Bursting

Hydraulic bursting offers the ability to fragment almost unlimited areas of concrete, either horizontally or vertically, with or without reinforcement.


The method involves drilling a matrix of holes approximately 350mm apart into the area to be demolished. Once the holes are drilled, the bursting piston equipment is inserted and the process begins.


Hydraulic Bursting takes longer than hydraulic crunching due to the preparation of drilling the holes, but has similar advantages of low noise and low dust.
