Pipe Burst Tracer Wire >


Kris-Tech Pipe Burst Tracer Wire is a stranded, copper clad steel wire. With a breaking strength of 4,700 pounds, it is stronger and more conductive than the 3/16 stranded stainless steel wire traditionally used in pipe burst applications. Kris-Tech’s pipe burst tracer wire has a durable, 50mm high-density polyethylene (HDPE) insulation.


  • Much stronger than traditional pipe burst tracer wire and three times more conductive
  • Highly flexible, durable, and reliable


Pipe bursting is a technique used to replace or expand buried pipelines without digging a conventional construction trench. Pipe bursting requires tracer wire with the highest available strength or break load.
