How Brextor® works

How the pile breaking method works

Step 1: If the pile has been over concreted, the excess concrete is removed with the milling disc until the reinforcing bars are visible. The reinforcing bars are marked, the center of the reinforcement cage is located and a small guide hole is drilled.

Step 2: Milling is performed to the desired height profile. The inner cutter breaks the core tension to avoid cracks in the pile body. The outer cutter breaks the surface tension to prevent spalling on the outer skin of the pile.

Step 3: The residual concrete is then broken away using the specially developed BRC pile head bit with longer biting arms.

Step 4: Finally, an electric hammer is used to clean the areas between the reinforcements.

Brextor® - efficient pile breaking method

How to break bored piles professionally

When it comes to the construction of long-lasting buildings or infrastructure, bored piles play a crucial role. Once the bored piles have been installed, it is extremely important to break them properly to ensure long-term stability and safety. If a bored pile is damaged during breaking (cracks in the pile body, spalling on the pile skin, etc.), this can have fatal consequences for the future or longevity of the structure. Discover the efficient, qualitative & safe method for the professional breaking of piles and thus maximize the service life of your construction projects.

Economical pile breaking: cost-effective breaking of piles

Importance of construction quality when breaking piles:

Careless or uncontrolled work can damage pile heads and cause long-term corrosion damage. There is a risk of cracks in and on the building, subsidence of the building, punching of ceilings or, in the worst case, loss of the required structural stability of the building. These risks do not exist with Brextor®. Perfectly finished piles without cracks in the pile body or spalling on the pile skin. In addition, the reinforcing bars are not bent or torn off and a height accuracy of +/- 1 cm can be guaranteed.

Reduce construction costs with suitable equipment and tools:

Thanks to Brextor®, construction costs can be reduced. The demolition material consists of 80% gravel 0-30mm and can therefore be reused directly on the construction site. In addition, Brextor® requires less working space than conventional mining methods. This means that not only expenses for transportation and disposal incl. fees are saved, but the purchase and supply of replacement material is also eliminated. Furthermore, the preparatory work eliminates the need for a separating diamand cut at the final extraction level and the cleaning effort is massively lower than with conventional extraction methods.

Speed of the pile breaking process:

Fast and efficient processes are crucial in order to meet or shorten project deadlines and minimize the associated costs. With Brextor®, speed can be massively increased without sacrificing quality! For example, a pile with a diameter of 1 m and a cut height of 1 m can be processed within 40 minutes. A daily output of up to 16 piles is possible. In addition, Brextor® provides reliable performance and therefore increased planning security.

Case study of a successful commercial construction project:

Extension of Liestal railroad station (CH) – Implenia AG site manager Stefan Lang: “The method also proved to be advantageous in view of the limited space available, as there would not have been enough room for a hydraulic hammer between the nail wall and the pile head. Just to create enough space for the breaking work using a hydraulic hammer, the 6 m high wall would have had to be moved back over a length of 300 m. This would have meant a massive increase in costs. This would have meant a massive increase in costs. In this way, 80 cm of working space could be dispensed with, saving 1440 m3 of excavation (fixed dimensions) and thus not only saving costs for excavation, transport, landfill fees and material replacement, but also protecting the environment by eliminating at least 280 truck journeys of 40 kilometers each. This reduced the CO2 footprint and the population benefited from a less congested road network.”

Your solution for sustainable construction: Professionally broken piles

Avoidance of material waste and unnecessary consumption of resources:

The use of Brextor® not only avoids material waste (reuse of demolition material 80% gravel 0-30mm), but also significantly minimizes the consumption of resources (landfills, replacement materials, etc.). This sustainable processing therefore provides a resource-saving alternative that makes both ecological and economic sense. Rely on sustainable construction with Brextor® and be a role model for sustainable and efficient construction methods.

Increased health and safety at work through professional pile breaking:

Professional breaking of piles also plays a crucial role in health and safety at work, particularly in connection with hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS). Vibrations from hand-held breaking equipment can lead to long-term health problems such as hand-arm vibration syndrome (HAVS). Professional pile breaking methods such as Brextor® eliminate the most strenuous physical activities and thus actively contribute to protecting the health of workers. Brextor® also avoids working in danger zones.

Breaking piles: Why choosing the right equipment is crucial

Factors to look out for:

Several factors should be considered when selecting equipment for breaking piles. These include the costs, the available space, the time required and the environmental friendliness of the design. The health and safety of employees must also be taken into account. Brextor® exceeds the expectations of an economical and sustainable design.

References and evaluations from expert teams:

When experts talk about Brextor®, they are talking about a method that combines quality, speed, predictability, sustainability, cost-effectiveness and occupational safety in pile head processing. For example, Egon Studer, Senior Site Manager at the Department of Mobility, Spatial Development and the Environment (DRMU), National Roads Service (DNSB) describes Brextor® as follows: “In particular, the care and precision with which the piles are broken down to the pile head height is a special feature of Brextor®. In addition, the performance can be planned, which is extremely important for follow-up work.”
