Ultra High Pressure Blasting
Hydro demolition is the process of removing concrete using Ultra-High pressure blasting, It has become commonly accepted in Australia as the leading method to effectively remove concrete, for a variety of reason, due to the accuracy, efficiency and safety advantages.
Also known as ‘Hydro Blasting’ or ‘Water jetting’ Hydro Demolition can refer to hand held ‘guns’ or robots that remove concrete through blasting water at 36,000 + PSI.
This process applies to a variety of situations, and can be utilised on bridges, commercial structures, tunnels, industrial buildings and more.
Accurate and precise
Provide accurate results so that you can best retain existing structures, saving time and money.
Minimal impact on surrounding areas, due to lack of debris and dust being dispersed.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT SOLUTION
Why Choose Hydro Demolition
Accurate and precise
Many projects require precise concrete removal, and accuracy in demolition. This is possible with Hydro Demolition, due to the nature of Ultra-High Pressure blasting. No stress fractures are produced, unlike other methods of concrete removal, while also operators can be more precise in what they wish to remove.
Due to the nature of the process, UHP Blasting uses water, and doesn’t raise other complications, such as creating dust, unwanted sparks in the concrete removal process or the noise pollution commonly associated with other methods. This enables minimal disruptions to those on site, and in surrounding areas. Secondly, in volatile or at risk environments, that may have risks such as being flammable, Hydro Demolition provides a safer alternative.
Enables future repairs
In the concrete removal process, future repairs must be considered. Hydro Demolition does not damage the steel reinforcement, while also enabling to be more considerate to the surface profile of the concrete for future bonding.
