Concrete Bursting & Crunching
Concrete crunching employs a powerful hydraulic pincer jaw to crush concrete structure. The structure can be reduced to rubble in a noise free environment without dust, vibration, water and emissions.
Concrete bursting is a quiet and efficient method of controlled demolition used to remove large concrete structures such as foundations, pillars, bearers and concrete walls.
Holes are drilled in the concrete structure and the burster head, which contains a number of pistons, is inserted. Hydraulic pressure is provided by a motor, powered by electricity, diesel or petrol. The build up of lateral forces against the inside of the holes induces cracks in the concrete. The cracking follows the plane of weakness created by the holes that were drilled previously. The process is repeated until the whole structure is fractured into smaller sections and ready for removal.
