JTTI provides refractory maintenance for the industrial marketplace throughout North America. JTTI’s clients benefit from JTTI’s innovative solutions to difficult refractory problems. Hydro demolition is another arrow in JTTI’s quiver of innovative solutions for the traditionally difficult issue of demolition of vibration castable in riser lines. Recently, JTTI removed 60 lineal feet x 7 foot diameter x 5” thick coked up vibration castable in days rather than weeks. The man hour reduction due the mechanized hydro-demolition equipment saved thousands of hours of turnaround time and 10 days on the turnaround not to mention dramatically reduced the risk for injury. This is a net result of literally millions of dollars in operational savings compared to the performing this scope in the traditional chipping gun manner. This unique safe removal process does not damage the steel or the anchors. However, you may need to bend the anchors back the their original position after the process. Let JTTI provide you with a solution to meet your requirements today.
