If you’re interested in incorporating pipe bursting and replacement into your range of trenchless services or if you already handle this specialized procedure for your clients, we here at TRIC Tools have the products and equipment that you need to get the job done. We stock a variety of pipe bursting heads for all types of uses, and we offer the following facts on choosing the right supplies for your project.

Pipe Bursting Head Sizes and Materials

The most common way to categorize bursting heads is by the diameter at the widest point of the bursting cone. We offer four-, six- and eight-inch diameter bursting heads for use in pipes of varying sizes. Because of the demands placed upon them, most bursting heads are made of high-strength metal or metal alloys.

Pipe Bursting Head Configurations

A pipe bursting head is generally fitted with a series of two or three flanges that facilitate the destruction of the existing pipe. These flanges may be permanently attached or may be removable for greater versatility.

Other Pipe Bursting Head Features

Most pipe bursting heads come with a separate attachment called a pulling eye. This pulling eye is attached to the cable that pulls the bursting head through the pipeline. Pulling eyes may be fixed in place or they may be articulated to allow the bursting head to be inserted into a pipe that has minimal access to the opening.
