Hydraulic concrete bursting and crunching rigs use a combination of steel rams to apply extremely high but localised compressive stresses to break up concrete.
Concrete bursting and crunching equipment can be handheld, or more usually machine mounted. Operation is free of vibration and silent, and offers a cost effective way to remove concrete slabs, columns, beams or walls in noise, dust and vibration sensitive areas.
Concrete crunching heads mounted on conventional or remote controlled tracked carriers with hydraulic booms increase capacity and productivity, whilst significantly reducing risk to operators.
Bursting equipment is introduced into pre-cored holes, typically 210mm in diameter, and expanded hydraulically using a wedge like action to crack and burst the surrounding concrete into manageable sized sections.
The technique is free of vibration and silent, and offers a cost effective way to remove stone, masonry and mass or lightly reinforced concrete blocks.
