Aquajet Systems introduces aqua centralizer for tunnel and pipe applications
Hydrodemolition machine manufacturer Aquajet Systems AB, has introduced its new Aqua Centralizer. The new device allows for the effective cleaning or removal of concrete, paint, rust and coatings along an entire section of horizontal, vertical or inclined tunnels and pipes.
The Aqua Centralizer uses elements of the Aqua Spine as the base for the unit while incorporating technology from the Circular Power Head attachment for concrete removal and cleaning applications. This includes a 360-degree ring and robotic power head with a 25-degree adjustable lance angle and variable stroke oscillation. The power head offers adjustable working angles from 0 to 360 degrees and automatic indexing along the spine rail, minimizing downtime from repositioning and optimizing productivity.
Centralizer rings are available in three sizes. The powerhead adjusts up to 10 inches to facilitate the diameter ranges.
The Aqua Centralizer is one of several attachments available for use with Aquajet’s Aqua Cutter robots. It can be operated using Aquajet’s Power Pack and stored, along with the robot, in the Power Pack container for transportation to and from the jobsite. It also provides a secure location for the duration of the job.
Aquajet offers a 1-year or 1,000-hour warranty on this product line. The company provides operators with initial, onsite training, as well as more extensive training through its Aquajet Academy program. The Aquajet Academy covers all aspects of advanced Hydrodemolition, including streamlining work, safety practices, operating techniques and services.
“The Aqua Centralizer integrates key components of several of our existing designs to provide operators a new solution for working in pipes and tunnels more effectively than ever before,” said Roger Simonsson, Aquajet Systems AB managing director.
