While all hydrodemolition methods use water, our ultra-high pressure methods use only about 50% of the volume used by our competitors.
Reduced water usage generates substantial direct and indirect cost savings for contractors and customers. In addition, less water used means less water that needs treatment and disposal. Less water used means wastewater containment is easier and wastewater treatment and disposal is less costly.
Depending upon the depth of the concrete to be removed (per the customer’s specification) and the work site’s terrain and location, Rampart Hydro Services recovers water in one of two ways:
- With state-of-the-art suction and vacuum technology
- Through the careful design of run-off and retention systems
Regardless of the method deployed, wastewater is contained and does not enter the local environment until it is fit to do so, after compliance with all federal, state, and local regulations. We have kept wastewater from environmentally-sensitive areas, such as lakes and rivers on numerous occasions. Our Dry Hydrodemolition® process connects the vacuum trucks directly to the cutting robots capturing 95% of the wastewater immediately. This process allows us to work in those environmentally-sensitive areas without a problem.
Our highly specialized Automated Vacuum-Filtration System (AVS®) units perform wastewater filtration using diatomaceous earth. These units were specifically designed with environmental sensitivity in mind.
