What is the process known as hydroblasting? This is known by a number of names (including concrete hydrodemolition,) but the process and effect is the same. It involves the technique of using a water jet which is set to high pressure to allow concrete to be broken up and removed. Hydroblasting is often a term used to describe what happens during this process as concrete removal is undertaken. In order to provide effective hydrodemolition services we have invested heavily in our workforce and the equipment that we use. Our operators are highly trained including specialist in-house training which is not available elsewhere. This makes us one of the best hydroblasting companies around Our operators also have access to an extensive fleet of Hammelmann jetting units which are unrivalled in terms of capability and reliability for the hydrodem process.

Hydrodemolition is the controlled removal of concrete using high pressure, high speed water has several advantages over traditional air tool, machine mounted breakers.

  1. Minimal vibration to the operator
  2. No loose or damaged concrete on the edge of breakout area
  3. No damage to steel reinforcing
  4. Removal of concrete around dense reinforcing (impossible using air breakers)
  5. Thorough washing / self cleaning of breakout area

The use of hydrodemolition seems to becoming more widespread amongst the construction industry, particularly within the civil engineering sector. The reasons listed above are the main factors for the increase in awareness of what is now a growing industry.
