THE NEED

Everywhere you go, water, sewer, gas and other utilities are in a constant state of deterioration or incapable of meeting the rising needs of today's urban areas where population growth is a problem. Water mains beneath many of those streets are approaching 100 years old. Most of the pipes are cast iron and have seen their best years. Much of it is at the end of its life cycle and needs to be renewed or replaced. Since most of the underground infrastructure has been in place for decades, streets, sidewalks, landscaping, even buildings have been layered on top of the underground pipes. Imagine being able to replace the entire water and sewer system of a city without causing a major traffic, jam and incurring the enormous cost of restoring your streets and roads. That is the promise of Anaconda Trenchless Technology.

THE TECHNOLOGY

Pipe bursting is a well-established method for trenchless replacement of existing utility, water, gas and sewer piping that is either worn out, undersized or incapable of meeting the needs of growing communities. An existing pipe is replaced size-for-size or up-sized with a new pipe in the same location and accomplished by pulling the new pipe through the old pipe. The demolition cone, by virtue of its size or its radial expansion ability shatters the old pipe and forces the fragments into the surrounding soil. The technique is the most cost effective when there are few lateral connections, when the old pipe is structurally deteriorated, and when additional capacity is needed.  Pipe bursting is receiving more and more attention as a viable alternative to open trench replacement. The process can be used on pipes of Cast or Ductile iron, Clay, Steel, Concrete, ABS, or PVC.
