Aquajet Systems Ergo System Redefine Compact Hydrodemolition

Published: 19/3

Aquajet Systems AB launched the Ergo System in the U.S. at World of Concrete 2019. Ideal for work on floors, walls and ceilings robot offers four times the power of a hand lance in a compact footprint that contractors can easily move around the jobsite. 

The Ergo SystemÕs elements include a controller unit, which powers and controls the hydraulics, the Ergo Power Head, which manipulates the high-pressure lance, and either the spine or the climberÑunique systems used to support and maneuver the power head, based on project needs. The climber attaches to any standard scaffolding pipes and robotically moves along it to deliver powerful hydrodemolition forces for vertical concrete removal and repair, such as high-rise construction. 

The system exerts an impressive 225 lbf (1,000 N) of reaction force, about that of AquajetÕs largest hydrodemolition robot, the Aqua Cutter 710V. The robot can handle higher volumes of water, as much as four times greater reaction force than a human operator with a hand lance. This means the machine can remove concrete faster and easier.

Contractors can easily move the 271-lb (123-kg) Ergo Controller unit around the jobsite and over soft or rough surfaces due to the wide wheels and low ground pressure. At just 44 in (1.1 m) tall and 17 in (432 mm) wide, the Ergo transports easily on a pallet.

Additionally, the system is also service friendly with hydraulic hose multiconnectors that are 100% sealed from moisture to virtually eliminate the risk of leaks during transportation.  

The Ergo System requires a high-pressure pump to operate. Aquajet offers a compact Power Pack ideal for the purpose, featuring a high-pressure Hammelmann pump, diesel engine and an integrated control system.
