Trenchless Pipe Bursting CompressionFit Sliplining Murphy Pipelines United State is a specialized construction-repair business that uses trenchless technology, which reduces or eliminates the need to excavate to replace or repair pipelines. Trenchless pipe bursting and sliplining are two of the many trenchless construction technologies employed by Murphy Pipelines. Both of these techniques can be used to rehabilitate existing pipelines or to install new pipelines.
Trenchless pipe bursting is a process where an existing pipeline is replaced with a new pipe at depths below the surface. It involves inserting a "bursting head" into the existing pipe, which is then expanded and pulled through the existing pipe wall. The old pipeline is fractured and pushed into the surrounding ground while the new pipeline is pulled into place, leaving no surface disruption. The process is typically used when replacing a deteriorated or even collapsed pipe.
Sliplining is similar to pipe bursting but is used when the existing pipe is in relatively good condition. A smooth inner-liner pipe is inserted into an existing pipe, then grout is injected between the liner and the existing pipe for support. The new liner acts as an extension of the existing pipeline, often with an increased flow capacity.
The time it takes to perform a pipe bursting or sliplining project depends on a number of factors including the depth and width of the existing pipe, the type of repair or replacement needed, and the soil conditions. On average, an installation of this type can take a few days to several weeks to complete, depending on the scope of the project.
At Murphy Pipelines, experienced engineers and technicians take the time to fully understand the local area, project requirements, and soil conditions in order to provide the most accurate job estimates and timeline. With a successful track record of installing and replacing pipelines with minimal disruption, they can confidently provide their clients with a high quality, efficient service.
