Hydraulic Bursting

Hydraulic bursting is typically used when large masses, plinths or other redundant reinforced concrete structures need to be removed. To burst a structure apart, holes are first diamond core drilled to allow the burster head to be inserted within the structure, the burster head is then pressurised and starts to expand within the hole to crack the concrete apart into manageable pieces. As a vibration free demolition method, hydraulic bursting can be especially useful when working in noise and vibration sensitive environments such as offices and hospitals.
