The equipment of this invention, is of modular design and needs no bolting, or tools to assemble. It will fit into an excavation hole that is 2 feet wide and 3.5 feet long, for the small pullers (24 tons) and 2'.times.4.5 feet long for the largest puller (75+tons) the entrance hole for the replacement pipe need be only as long as the radius bend, that the polyethylene pipe size used, requires.
The components of the present invention can be easily built in several sizes according to the strength of the cable to be pulled, and componentized, so that no component weighs more than 75 lbs.

One may can now move all the equipment necessary to pull up to 150,000 pounds (75 tons), in one average sized pick-up truck and hand carry it to remote areas normally inaccessible to the larger prior art equipment.

The present invention has particular applications in the vast 4" diameter home lateral pipe field, which has, up to now been relatively untouched by the trenchless method of pipe replacement.
Benefits
Pipe bursting in Mr. Drain ® Plumbing may also be used to increase a pipeline's carrying capacity by replacing smaller pipes with larger pipes. That's known as "upsizing." The gas and water industries have demonstrated the practicality of upsizing gas mains, water mains and sewer lines.
It's fragmenting an underground pipe into smaller pieces with advanced equipment. In short, pipe bursting is a simple as it sounds. Prevents Root Intrusion and stops leaks. The new HDPE or SDR pipe replaced by pipe bursting method maintains the same diameter that the existing pipe has. As the SDR or Poly Ethylene pipe is fused at 400° F so the chances of leakage from the joints where it is fused is almost not possible.
Pipe Bursting Benefits
  • Problems are completely solved because the line is totally replaced, not just repaired
  • The cost of installing HDPE pipe with the pipe bursting method is much less than total replacement by conventional trenching techniques
  • Drastically reduces the public inconvenience and disturbance to the environment caused by traditional repairs
  • Can be performed in tight access areas where open cut methods present a challenge or are not an option
  • Install high-quality pipe that is the same diameter or larger than the original pipeline for increased flow capacity
  • Over 20 years of pipe bursting experience
  • Trained Mr. Drain ┬«technicians have the expertise to see the job through every step of the way
  • In-house capability to assist the engineer and the owner designing the project by recommending the best rehabilitation methods and materials
  • Pipe bursting allows for replacement of pipes without disturbing surface structures.
  • Potential problems with existing pipes are minimized because pipe-bursting methods follow the existing pipe path.
  • For smaller sizes of pipe, pipe bursting is the only trenchless technology that can be used to upsize the existing pipe.
  • Because it is trenchless, excavation is minimized, which lessens effects on existing landscaping and structures. The bursting heads on the piercing tool can be removed at the end of the line so that the tools may be removed through the new line. This can eliminate the need for an exit pit in some instances.
  • Pipe bursting reduces the amount of site restoration required.

The sewer backups mostly result because of offsets, cracks, breaks in pipes settled pipes, and roots intrusion in the pipes. At Mr Drain of our experts not only clean the drain lines but also repair or replace the sewer or drain lines by the Trenchless no dig techlology. Following is the detail description that what are the conditions in which you need to replace your sewer or drain lines and what is the trenchless no dig technology and how it works




Reasons for slow and clogs in the Sewer and Drain Lines

Broken, Cracked, Offset or collapsed pipe — Damaged pipes due to the shifting of soail, Frozen ground, settling, etc

Blockage  — Grease buildup or a foreign object is restricting or prohibiting properflow and/or cleaning of the line.

Corrosion — the pipe has deteriorated and/or broken, causing collapses in the line and restricting flow.

Corrosion — the pipe has deteriorated and/or broken, causing collapses in the line and restricting flow.

Leaking joints — the seals between pipes have broken, allowing water to escape into the area surrounding the pipe.

Root infiltration — tree or shrub roots have invaded the sewer line, preventing normal cleaning and/or have damaged the line.


Off-grade pipe — existing pipes are constructed of substandard material that may have deteriorated or corroded
 
How Trenchless No Dig Technology Work
Trenchless Sewer Repair in Seattle1.) The pipe is replaced by digging only two holes - an entry and exit hole. Sewer Replacement in Seattle2.) A splitting head is attached to the new pipe and hammers through the old pipe. While the old pipe is being expanded, the new pipe is simultaneously being pulled through the old pipe.

relining pipes3.) The new pipe will follow the same path as the old pipe. The new pipe will be a joint-free Polyethelyne  SDR 17 replacement that will far outlast the pipe it is replacing. Also, because it is seamless, it doesn't allow roots to penetrate like old jointed sewer pipes do.

pipe relining

4.) Up ahead the splitting head is blasting away, making room for the new pipe. Because of the power of the machine used to lay the new pipe it is possible to increase the diameter of the existing pipe by several inches depending on the original diameter.

See the following Animation that will explain you how a sewer lateral is replaced by trenchless ( Pipe Bursting Technology )

Pipe Bursting (Trenchless Sewer and Pipe Replacement)

The basic components of the invention include a pipe parting mole, a length of cable that is attachable to the mole, a cable pulling device and a cable pulling device engagement means that provides a mounting structure for the cable pulling device. The cable pulling device engagement means generally includes a reaction plate and a structure for removably engaging the cable pulling device there within. A cable pulling frame may be advantageously used to facilitate the removal of the cable from a relatively small hole that is created at the pulling end of the pipe.

The equipment of this invention, is of modular design and needs no bolting, or tools to assemble. It will fit into an excavation hole that is 2 feet wide and 3.5 feet long, for the small pullers (24 tons) and 2'.times.4.5 feet long for the largest puller (75+tons) the entrance hole for the replacement pipe need be only as long as the radius bend, that the polyethylene pipe size used, requires.


The components of the present invention can be easily built in several sizes according to the strength of the cable to be pulled, and componentized, so that no component weighs more than 75 lbs. One may can now move all the equipment necessary to pull up to 150,000 pounds (75 tons), in one average sized pick-up truck and hand carry it to remote areas normally inaccessible to the larger prior art equipment. The present invention has particular applications in the vast 4" diameter home lateral pipe field, which has, up to now been relatively untouched by the trenchless method of pipe replacement.

Discussion of Prior Art

Trenchless technology for the replacement of underground pipe is not new, and the standard equipment and methods generally used are well known. This standard equipment for this technology is very large, heavy, and therefore requires additional large, heavy duty equipment for the transportation to, and the placement thereof on site, and the operation thereof on site.

There are several methods of propelling a pipe bursting, and/or cracking and expanding device, and pulling a new pipe through an existing pipe The most commonly used methods are large cable winches, and/or rod pushers or pullers that are usually hydraulically powered, and often used with a pneumatic percussive device helping to drive the pipe breaking device. Winches give continuous motion during pulling, while rod pushers/pullers generally give cycled motion in which they pull, then a rod must be either added or removed, before the return stroke, and next pull stroke. Sometimes rod pushers are converted to cable pullers, eliminating the need for rod removal.

Winches and rod pushers/pullers that can produce pulling forces of up to 75 tons can themselves weigh 2 to 5 tons and must be handled and placed in position to pull; they are powered by correspondingly heavy duty equipment, cranes, trucks, and back-hoes, etc. They also need large excavations, such that the support equipment can take up enough room so as to create traffic problems and even require street closures.

This also means that only large companies with large financial resources can afford the equipment necessary to replace underground pipes, and because the costs and maintenance on this equipment can be high, their prices are also high. Therefore the use of this prior art trenchless technology has been limited mainly to the 4 inch or above size pipe of municipal or corporate supply and sewer lines, and is used mainly by large contractors.

Most people are unfamiliar with the term 'Trenchless Pipe Replacement'. Some other names commonly used are "No-Dig", "trenchless pipe rehabilitation", "pipe breaking", "Trenchless Technology" and "trenchless pipeline replacement". No matter which name it is going by it simply means splitting an old, worn out pipe while inserting a new one ...all at the same time!

Trenchless technology includes a large family of methods utilized for installing and rehabilitating underground utility systems with minimal surface disruption. Basically it refers to a method of replacing underground pipe-work without digging long, ugly trenches that disrupt lawns, sidewalks, driveways and just about any other property feature that has the misfortune of existing above an underground line!

The trenchless method installs the new pipe by pulling it through the old pipe, even if the existing pipe is collapsed, behind a special breaking head (or cone) that expands a clear channel ahead of the new pipe as it travels underground. One small pit is all that is necessary for most jobs in order to feed the new pipe into the ground... a compact but powerful pulling machine is located at the destination point, often inside a building, to pull the pipe in from the pit.

The operation is simple, requiring relatively few steps.

The first step is to determine where the line must begin and then end. Once determined, two small pits are dug, each approximately 24" wide x 36" and as deep as required for the particular job. One pit (the entry pit) will be used to feed the line, and the other (the pulling pit) will contain the pulling unit ready to pull the pipe through the ground.

The pulling unit is then assembled in the pulling pit and butted against wooden shoring that surrounds the old pipe or newly bored pilot hole. Next the pulling cable is hand-pushed from the entry pit through to the pulling pit and threaded into the machine. In the entry pit, the cable is passed through the hollow bursting cone, through the pipe guide,
through the new pipe and attached to the pipe boot with a retaining pin. (See diagram)

http://www.alpha-plumbing.com/http://www.mrdrain.com/images/cone_assembly.gif

Once assembled and ready to go, the Honda power pack is started up, charging the hydraulic cylinders, or on heavier jobs the backhoe is positioned and the chain attached. The pulling operation can now commence. The unit will pull the new pipe through the soil at a rate of approximately two feet per minute up to four feet per minute . (Note: Some soil conditions may cause this rate to vary). In the entry pit, as the new pipe is almost all the way in, the process will pause. The cable will be fed through the next length of pipe, the boot and pin attached, and the head of the new length will be fused to the tail of the preceding one. The pulling process can now resume and the cycle will be repeated until the job is finished. Once done, the pulling unit is disassembled, the cable is retrieved and the pulling process is complete. The diagram below illustrates the process the process overall.

*Please note that for the purposes of this brief description, "pipe" refers to the line being pulled no matter what type.
