Hydraulic Bursting

Effective process of breaking concrete or rock in-situ

Safe, quiet, efficient fracturing without explosives or percussive tools

Utilising a special hydraulic expansion pack inserted into pre-drilled holes, our hydraulic bursters break up concrete and rock in-situ without the need for explosives or percussive tools.

Our hydraulic bursting equipment has a small footprint and is easily portable, making it useful in areas where access is difficult or where vibration and noise are concerns.

The bursters require a small hole to be drilled or cored before insertion. Once inserted into this hole, the hydraulic bursters generate sufficient pressure to shear small re-enforcement steel as well as fracturing the targeted concrete or rock.
