McBreen Environmental carry out Hydrodemolition (also known as hydroblasting, or ultra high pressure water jetting)
Hydrodemolition is a concrete removal technique which utilities ultra high pressure water at pressures up to 45,000 psi to remove deteriorated and sound concrete to expose reinforcement bars for repairs and or replacement. Hydrodemolition is ideal for the removal of concrete without damage or impact to the reinforcement bars or vibration of a structure. This process provides an excellent bonding surface for repair material.
Ultra High Pressure Water Jetting is also suitable for the removal of coatings as opposed to abrasive or shot blasting prior to new coating applications and for the safe removal of lead based coatings.

High-pressure water cleaning is normally performed using jet streams that can have a velocity greater than that of a 45-caliber bullet, and do as much damage. Therefore, extreme caution and strict compliance with procedures must be used to prevent the jet stream from striking the operator, other employees or delicate equipment. Each of our UHP Hydrodemolition Operatives are WJA (Water Jetting Association) certified to carry out these works.
