TT Technologies offers new cutterhead configuration for static pipe bursting operations
TT Technologies recently introduced a new cutterhead configuration for its Grundoburst static pipe bursting system. The new configuration consists of three specially designed bladed, roller cutterheads in succession. The bladed roller cutting head configuration allows contractors to burst/split large diameter steel and ductile iron pipes when used with larger Grundoburst static bursting systems. The new special cutterhead design allows for a smoother host pipe cut and greater protection for the new pipe.
Pulled by a hydraulic bursting unit, the cutterhead’s special cutting wheels split the host pipe. An attached expander spreads and displaces the split pipe into the surrounding soil while simultaneously pulling in the new pipe. The Grundoburst system features Patented QuickLock bursting rods that are linked together not threaded. This saves time, prevents twisting and extends the life of the cutterhead over threaded bursting rods.

Industries such as construction, mining, energy, utilities and forestry, face many challenges when it comes to tracking assets and employees. Equipment often has to be transferred between locations, or monitored while it is dormant during off seasons. Lone workers may have to travel long distances or visit multiple sites during the course of their activities. And, all of this is further complicated today with shifting supply chains and economic realities putting further strain on the bottom line.
