A robotic unit to expedite industrial cleaning

By Mary Page Bailey |

This company’s Ergo System (photo) is a compact hydrodemolition robot used for hazardous cleaning applications, such as those requiring the removal of concrete, coatings, paint, rust, plastic or other materials. The Ergo offers four times the power of a hand lance and provides maneuverability through remote operation to keep workers safer, says the company. Using a number of attachments, the Ergo System can be operated remotely for efficient cleaning and removal of material in boilers, tanks, pipes and other industrial containers and conduits. The Ergo System incorporates a controller unit, which powers and controls the hydraulics, the Ergo power head, which manipulates the high-pressure lance, and either a spine or a climber, which are unique systems used to support and maneuver the power head, based on project needs. The climber attaches to any standard scaffolding or pipes and robotically moves along it to remove material. — Aquajet Systems AB, Holsbybrunn, Sweden
