English term or phrase:slitting
the sentence I cannot understand is the one between *****
The XXX and YYY are hydraulically powered static pipe bursting systems that can be set up to install 4” (100mm) to 20” (400mm) potable water, sewer or gaslines using pipebursting technology. *****The units are also capable of replacing 4” (100mm) to 12” (300mm) ductile iron, galvanized steel and steel slitting depending upon the unit being used, the depth of the service and soil conditions*****. The rod is pushed through the existing utility from either the entrance or exit pit and attached to a burst head which has the replacement carrier line to it. As the control valve is cycled, the rod is pulled toward the exit pit. This in turn pulls the burst head which bursts the old utility and simultaneously installs the new line. When the new utility reaches the exit pit, the burst head is removed and the new carrier line is reattached at both ends to the remaining utility
... is slitting another technique which this pipebursting system is replacing?
the dictionary gives me the equivalent of "cut" as a translation for slitting, but here it seems to be something metallic...
