Same Path™ Technology

While trenchless pipe bursting is recognized as a cost-effective way to replace natural gas pipes, the replacement of dated plastic pipe poses unique challenges. In the past, pipe bursting caused the plastic pipes to overheat, buckle, and jam. After years of working with gas utility pros in the field, HammerHead® developed its innovative, award-winning Same Path™ gas line slitting system. The Same Path system consists of patented, specialized tooling used in combination with HammerHead's advanced HydroGuide® cable winches. Original lines can be replaced with new pipe up to 2x the original diameter or left in place leaving a visual confirmation of decommissioning.
