Hydroblasting is a fairly new method of using Ultra High Pressure of up to 40,000 psi in a pulsating, blasting method to deliver water and other cleaning agents to blast away things that might not otherwise ever be removed. Extreme care needs to be taken when using this newest in cleaning and stripping technologies and therefore it is imperative that you hire true professionals! HydroBlasing Colorado is a division of Lightning Mobile, Inc. Commercial and Industrial Property Maintenance is what we are known for throughout Colorado.

HydroBlasting Facts and Information

With our special hydroblasting processes, we are able to offer professional scale lancing that will remove even the most adherent scale deposits that can tend to build up quickly in industrial and commercial applications. A safe and consistent cleaning process is provide by using these lancing services. By delivering a peak 40,000 PSI to the problem areas, this method of industrial cleaning can also be the quickest way to take care of your property maintenance needs, reducing down times and costs.

One of the best ways to remove concrete, be it layers at a time, or an entire concrete structure laying bear the steel reenforcement, for operations like bridge and road repair, hydrodemolition is rapidly becoming a preferred method.

Hydrodemolition (also known as hydro demolition, hydroblasting, hydro blasting, hydromilling, waterblasting, and waterjetting) is a concrete removal technique which utilizes high-pressure water to remove deteriorated and sound concrete as well as asphalt and grout. This process provides an excellent bonding surface for repair material and new coating applications. First developed in Europe in the 1970s, this technology has become widely accepted for concrete removal and surface preparation throughout Europe and North America.

Hydrodemolition is not used as much for demolition as it is for surface restoration and protection projects. When concrete has deteriorated or the reinforcing steel has begun to corrode, it is necessary to remove any unsound concrete and reinforcing bars (rebar) in order to replace it with new concrete and maintain the integrity of the structure. This process has also been used to remove sound concrete that is not compromised in any way. This may be done to install a preventive cathodic protection system, or to remove concrete in structures in which vibration is a concern. Unlike jackhammers, hydrodemolition does not produce vibrations throughout a structure and therefore does not introduce micro fractures.

Hydro scarification: The process of hydro scarification (a.k.a. hydroscarification or scarification) uses ultra high pressure water to remove the top surface of a concrete bridge or road surface. Usually the removal is within 1/4" to 3/4" at the most, but can be of any depth above the top layer of rebar. Removal of this type is done in order to provide a good microfracture-free surface for bonding with new, sound concrete. Much like applying oil and chips to an asphalt road, this helps extend the useful life of the bridge decking and road surface by delaying the need for complete replacement.

Partial depth removal involves the selective removal of deteriorated concrete to a certain depth or of a concrete overlay to a depth exceeding 3/4". It is usually done in the case of concrete restoration projects where embedded objects such as rebar are substantial and need to be preserved.

Complete removal of a concrete deck is done when it is too deteriorated to keep, but the structural concrete is adequate or can be easily repaired after the hydrodemolition has taken place. Precast concrete beams are often used in structures such as bridges and parking garages. Hydrodemolition has been used successfully to remove concrete over these beams, where alternate methods such as jackhammers might have caused fracture of the beams.

Coating and sealant surface preparation: The use of high pressure and ultra high pressure water has been used to clean various coatings on concrete surfaces for the purpose of repair and reapplication. Coatings are used to protect concrete from the elements, rain, salt, and to create a friendlier surface for human use. Concrete can also be covered with carpet or tiles using a heavy duty glue or mastic. High pressure water can be used to clean these materials off when new carpet or tiles are desired.

Airfield rubber removal: Commercial and military airfields are required to maintain certain levels of friction on runways to prevent planes from skidding. Runway design, weather and amount of rubber remaining from tire wear all play a role in the level of friction of a landing strip. If too much rubber is present, the friction of the landing strip will be less, requiring more distance for landings, especially in wet weather. High pressure water can be used to remove rubber and restore required friction.

Any time a rigid surface, such as asphalt, concrete or metal, needs to have a coating applied, the surface must first be prepared. Hydrocleaning has been used to prepare for the application of such coatings. Coatings are used to protect concrete from rain and salt, and to create a smoother surface for human use. Concrete can also be covered with carpet or tiles using a heavy duty glue or mastic. Asphalt and concrete can be painted to communicate acceptable travel patterns, potential hazards, or for aesthetics. Hydrocleaning can be used to remove such materials off.

There are various water washing processes via a pressurized method, these processes can be listed by the rated of PSI (pounds per square inch) the water/liquid is being forced from the tube/wand:

Low Pressure Water Washing = Below 1,000 psi
High Pressure Washing Washing = 1,000 to 10,000 psi
High Pressure Hydroblasting = 10,000 to 25,000 psi
Ultra-High Pressure (UHP) Hydroblasting = 30,000 to 40,000 psi
