Murphy Pipeline Contractors has released a video showing the power of the pipe bursting method.

The video – recorded during an open day in Michigan, US, attended by municipalities and engineers – shows an 8 inch (203 mm) cast iron water main being replaced with new 8 inch high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe using the static pipe bursting method.

According to Murphy Pipelines, the video was published to show the power of the trenchless equipment the company uses.
