Doornbos appointed the UK agent for Conjet
19 May 2022
Doornbos Equipment UK are happy to announce that we have been appointed the UK agent for Conjet. To celebrate this new partnership we are offering 10% off all Conjet hydrodemolition robots, when purchased throughout May and June 2022.
For over 35 years, Conjet have led the development of robotic hydrodemolition technology. A technology with a proven track record, as the most sustainable and effective method for concrete removal and other types of surface preparation.
When it comes to selectively removing concrete elements within an existing structure, hydrodemolition robots are simply the better, safer, more reliable, and more environmentally friendly option. The automation of the hydrodemolition robots allows the operator to easily execute both selective and non-selective removals. And no matter which option you choose, the high-pressure water jet technology (also available through Doornbos) will create a rough surface, optimal for bonding of new concrete without creating any micro-cracks or damaging surrounding structure.
What is Hydrodemolition?
Hydrodemolition is a concrete removal technology that employs high-pressure water to remove damaged concrete, as well as asphalt and grout. This method creates a great bonding surface for repair and new coating applications.
Conjet’s concrete hydrodemolition robots use a high-pressure water jet. The jet travels over the concrete surface at a constant speed, taking advantage of the concrete’s permeability to create an overpressure that breaks it apart. The automation of the hydrodemolition robots allow operators to easily execute both selective and non-selective removals.
Selective removal is the preferred method, when only the deteriorated concrete needs to be removed. Conjet’s concrete hydrodemolition robots use high-pressure water up to 1500 bar, to selectively remove concrete at a predetermined quality level.
Non-selective removal (also known as “hydromilling”) is the preferred method when concrete needs to be removed to a predetermined depth, independent of the quality of the concrete. The ACR™ robot uses high-pressure water above 1500 bar.
No matter what option you choose, the high-pressure water jet technology will create a rough surface optimal for bonding of new concrete without creating any micro-cracks or damage to the remaining structure. At the same time, the hydrodemolition technique leaves the rebar intact and cleaned from rust and corrosion.
