Aquajet’s Revolutionary Ceramic Nozzles in Action

Published: 19/8, 2019

Aquajet’s ceramic nozzles are more than just tough. They’re specially designed to offer industry-leading longevity, cost savings and productivity to maximize efficiency on even the toughest jobs. True, a ceramic nozzle costs more than a steel counterpart. But its not just the material that makes the difference. Aquajet’s enginers thought through each component to ensure optimal efficency. The smoother internal surface produces a longer length of cohesive water jet stream, and a higher coefficient of discharge. By maintaining a narrow path for a longer distance, Aquajet’s ceramic nozzles allow users to remove more material with a higher level of accuracy, increasing overall productivity.

Depending on water quality, Aquajet’s ceramic nozzles can last more 350 hours, compared with the 50-hour lifetimes of most steel nozzles. That means users might well spend as much as $1,000 on steel nozzles before replacing one ceramic nozzle. This results in thousands of dollars over the course of the hydrodemolition robot’s lifetime and negatively affects jobsite efficiency in terms of downtime for maintenance.

A Louisiana contractor saw the benefit of ceramic over steel nozzles firsthand. Faced with a tight deadline to remove 2-ft (.6-m) deep concrete from 1,500 pilings in a swampy area, the contractor employed two Aquajet Aqua Cutter 710Vs with inexperienced crews and an alternative hydrodemolition machine manned by experienced operators. The Aqua Cutters blew the competition out of the water — clearing 21 pilings per day compared to just five by the other machines. The contractor attributed its efficiency to the quality of the nozzle. And over the course of the removal, Aquajet’s ceramic nozzles outlasted and outperformed the competition’s steel nozzles, saving the contractor time and money.

Hydrodemolition contractors are under pressure to get the job done quickly, safely and economically. With industry-leading longevity, cost savings and productivity, Aquajet’s ceramic nozzles are just one example of the care and forethought the company puts into every aspect of its hydrodemolition robots to help achieve maximum efficiency.
