TT Technologie offers a range of plastic pipe splitting heads developed by working directly with gas utilities to create optimum splitting head configurations. During the process, small launch and exit pits are dug at either end of the service or main line being replaced. A winch cable is rodded from the exit pit, through the existing line, to the launch pit. The splitting head configuration is attached and then pulled through the exiting line. An expander forces the split pipe into the surrounding soil.
