Hydraulic bursting

Utilising a special hydraulic expansion pack inserted into pre-drilled holes, our hydraulic bursters break up concrete and rock in-situ without the use of percussive tools. They are extremely portable and very useful in areas where vibration, access or noise are concerns.

Portable and small

Tooling for this type of work is very small and portable making it's use compelling in demolition where access is limited. The bursters require a small hole to be cored before insertion. The burster generates enough pressure to shear small re-enforcement steel (20mm) as well as cracking the concrete.

This technology is ideal for:

  • Hard to access areas
  • Where noise is a problem
  • Areas where percussive or explosive methods are unsuitable
