TYROLIT stands for reliable diamond technology and premium products. However, the Tyrolean manufacturer offers far more than a palette of ready-to use products for the classic fields of application. In addition to solutions for renovation and demolition, e.g. of bridges, buildings and other large, reinforced concrete structures, the TYROLIT Special Projects Team also provides competent support in far more delicate surroundings, such as nuclear power plants or offshore platforms. 

“More than 20 years of experience in the field of special projects make us the number one partner for complex decommissioning projects,” says Roland Hettegger, who heads the Special Projects Team. “According to the scope and complexity of the project, we provide our customers with customized support, reaching from bespoke product solutions to planning concepts and feasibility studies to on-site application support.”

For complex projects, the TYROLIT Special Projects Team offers a wide range of elaborate solutions for special applications, which are adapted according to the customers’ needs. Apart from the classic concrete drilling and sawing equipment the premium producer offers drill rigs for large diameters or deep drilling, curved tracks, or pile cutters for cutting pipes and columns. In accordance with TYROLIT’s philosophy to help customers to get the job done as efficiently as possible, the products are usually adapted in a quick and straightforward manner. 

THE professional partner in controlled decommissioning
TYROLIT, however, is a particularly competent partner in the supreme discipline of special construction, namely the controlled decommissioning of nuclear power plants and offshore platforms. In this field, professional work and a high level of experience are key.

Regardless of the location, TYROLIT already lent its support in projects all around the globe, including the restauration of water dams in Australia or South America, underwater cutting in the Atlantic Ocean or the decommissioning of the nuclear power plant in Belene, Bulgaria. 

All this know-how directly influences the development of new products, particularly the advancement of diamond wire technology. A major highlight of the portfolio is the ATEX-certified wire saw system. With this system, TYROLIT is the first supplier worldwide to fulfil the stringent EU explosion protection directive and, thus, proves once more to be a pioneer in the field. 

The system consists of TYROLIT’s premium DWH-series ATEX wire, the SB wire saw, and the PPH40RR drive with a certified protective cabin. Alternatively, customers can also use their own, certified drive. The wire saw system is mainly used for cutting pipes or other steel structures in working environments where explosion-hazardous gases can escape

 “The system can also be used with other certified drives,” says Hettegger. “Apart from the safety of the performing employees, we can, thus, guarantee a cost-effective and efficient solution. Customers can be confident that all TYROLIT components are already certified and they only have to take care of the certification of the overall system.” 

The TYROLIT ATEX-certified wire saw system: 

+ Certified for explosion hazardous areas (EX Zone 1, II 2G, IIA c T3)
+ Modular, combinable system, also suitable for the use with already certified drives
+ Robust DWH-series ATEX diamond wire with a very high cutting performance, an outstanding lifetime, noticeable smooth running and a high number of beads
+ Hydraulic SB wire saw with up to 33 ft (10m) of wire storage, high power transfer thanks to multiple roller transfer, and hydraulic wire tensioner
+ PPH40RR drive with certified protective cabin
+ For all metals except for titanium
+ Wire speed 10 – max. 18 m/s
