Concrete Bursting & Crunching
Concrete cruncing employs a powerful pincer jaw to crush a 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 diamond drilled in the concrete structure and the burster head, which contains a number of hydraulic fed pistons , is inserted. Hydraulic pressure is provided by a power pack powered by electricity , diesel or petrol. The build up of lateral forces against the inside of the core holes induces cracks in the concrete. The cracking follows the plane of weakness that was created by the core holes. The process is repeated until the full structure is fractured into smaller sections and ready for removal.
