Manual Hand Lance Hydrodemolition Services

In instances where there is a requirement for high pressure water jet concrete removal yet restrictions apply or only a small volume needs to be removed, manual hand lance hydrodemolition is the ideal solution.

Utilising the latest technology in high pressure water jets, manual lance hydrodemolition is the perfect alternative to robotic hydrodemolition under the following circumstances:

  • Accessibility Restrictions
    Where access is restricted and it would be impossible (or prove difficult) to utilise robotics, concrete removal is possible using manual lance hydrodemolition.
  • Restricted Water Supply
    In cases where access to a water supply is either restricted or limited, concrete removal can be achieved using manual lance hydrodemolition, removing the requirement of a fixed water supply.
  • A Smaller Volume Of Concrete Removal Required
    When only a smaller volume of concrete is required to be removed, it makes sense to utilise manual lance hydrodemolition to maintain a cost-effective solution.

Typically, manual lance hydrodemolition will see the removal of approximately 1 cubic metre of concrete per crew per day.
