Simple, effective process during the pneumatic pipebursting procedure, the Grundocrack® is placed into the host pipe at an entry pit or manhole. A constant tension Grundowinch®, based at the exit area pit and attached to the head of the tool, guides it through the host pipe. Continuous percussion from the pneumatic tool fractures the host pipe.
The Grundocrack effectively hammers its way through the host pipe, displacing the fragments into the surrounding soil, while simultaneously pulling the new pipe, usually High Density Polyethylene (HDPE), into place behind it. (For more information on HDPE pipe, visit ISCO Industries, LLC.) Pipebursting is the only trenchless method of replacement that allows for the upsizing of the original pipe.
