UHP Concrete Scabbling & Surface Preparation

UHP Water Jetting is typically used on concrete structures such as bridges, but this method of surface preparation is transferable across much of UK infrastructure. On concrete we use our Limpet blast head which incorporates powerful vacuum recovery of waste water and debris. It can be used on surfaces such as;  bridge decks & tunnels providing a clean dust free finish and without any percussive vibration associated with mechanical preparation techniques that can create micro cracks.

This finish is perfect for laying new concrete, or coatings (such as waterproofing) as all chemical traces and debris are removed as part of the process.

Technical advantages of concrete surface preparation

  • UHP water blasting provides a surface free from non-visible contamination.
  • Produces a perfect surface on which to apply new coating or additional concrete.

 

Safety and environmental advantages of concrete surface preparation

  • RGL’s Limpet Crawler system is remote control and takes operators away from the work face, thus reducing working hazards.
  • Abrasive free. Avoids costly landfill charges of spent media.
  • UHP Water Jetting is dust-free – operatives rarely need to wear RPE (respiratory protective equipment) or work in sheeted, confined spaces.

 

Typical applications of concrete scabbling

  • Road, rail bridges and tunnels.
