hydraulic and chemical bursting


Hydraulic bursting and Chemical Bursting

Hydraulic bursting and Chemical Bursting uses a planned induced fault line in masonry, brickwork or concrete. A line or pattern of holes is Diamond Drilled into the structure to be removed to form a plane of weakness along the desired line of breaking. A Hydraulic Burster or Expanding Grout is then used in each of the holes to induce a cracking into the structure and this bursts the concrete along the pre-planned line or pattern, thus eliminating or greatly reducing the breaking operation.

Concrete Bursting

Concrete Bursting is particularly suited to thicker masonry, brickwork and concrete structures such as footings, bases and especially on heavily reinforced concrete metres thick. Hydraulic bursting can also be used on natural stone. Hydraulic Bursting works well in confined spaces and when precise, controlled demolition and removal is an essential requirement.
