Dickinson Group of Companies’ HP / UHP Water Blasting Services have been successfully adopted in numerous applications within different industries. This article will briefly describe two of the applications; Cold Cutting and Hydro demolition.
HP / UHP Water Blasting Cold Cutting systems are ideal for cutting heat-sensitive material. The systems give highly precise cuts while eliminating some negative attributes that are inherent to other metal cutting techniques; including heat-affected zones, toxic fumes, recast layers, work hardening, and thermal stress. By the same token, addition of abrasives onto HP / UHP water systems has turned water blasting into a modern machining tool for all materials. The systems offer several advantages when compared to other techniques, including reductions in dust, cutting oils, vibrations, thermal stress, mechanical stress and waste products.
HYDRO DEMOLITION HP / UHP Water Blasting Hydro Demolition technologies use HP / UHP Water Blasting for concrete demolition tasks as an alternative to traditional mechanical methods of concrete demolition. Using HP / UHP Water Blasting for these tasks allows for more efficient and safer services when compared to the other typical concrete breaking techniques. Hydro Demolition also produces better surfaces for concrete repair and protective coatings.
