Robotic Cutters & Concrete Removal

RWB Group tackles the most challenging issues in drainage and water management. We use the best cutting equipment and technology to remove blockages that might otherwise be impossible to reach without a full-scale dig.

If concrete gets into the pipes it can settle and causes blockages, reducing water flow. This is a problem that often occurs when a developer is pouring concrete for foundation. The concrete can accidentally spill into the drainage pipework that is already in position. Plasterers and builders can also cause blockages when they are washing tools with the waste concrete or adhesives going down the pipes.

Our robotic cutters go in and cut the concrete out, removing the obstruction that is blocking the storm, sewer, or water pipe. Our trench-less clearing techniques quickly and effectively cut through obstacles and restore the flow of water and wastewater.

Our company is fully accredited and has a highly experienced team of engineers. We are committed to helping your business save time and money by solving any drainage issue while reducing disruption to your operations and ongoing activities.

Concrete Removal from Drains and Pipework

Everyone wants to avoid the high cost of excavation work and an unending hunt for suspected blockages. We ensure you do not need to bear these costs and inconveniences by using precision lateral robotic cutting technology that enters the system at the nearest access point.

The lateral robotic cutter is used to go down into the pipe. The cutter uses a camera to look 360 degrees round and see where the lateral connection is being blocked off by the insulation of a CIPP liner, for lateral reinstatement. The robot is capable of working inside pipes that have a broad range of diameters. We can quickly restore flow from land or buildings back to the central sewer system in a short amount of time.

RWB Group uses several solutions, including remote-controlled high-power cutters with diamond-impregnated steel cutting heads. These cutting heads cut and grind concrete into small pieces. The head operates through three-axis to ensure the effective and complete breakdown of the concrete.

We also use self-propelled water jet cutting robots that use a special bladder infiltration system to move forwards and climb angled pipes. The high-pressure water jets effortlessly cut through concrete, and this fully portable solution can be used on even the most inaccessible locations. This system is extremely accurate and very efficient, saving a significant amount of time while avoiding digging or using chemicals that can damage your pipework.

As the robotic concrete cutters effortlessly break down the obstructing materials into manageable pieces, we vacuum the materials out of the pipe to ensure they do not cause obstructions or other issues downstream.

Scope of Services

We understand that it is not just concrete that gets into drains, pipes, and sewers. Many other materials can get into pipelines during building and construction work. The robotic cutters are adept at breaking these down for removal.

Our robotic cutters can clear blockages caused by:

  • Cement
  • Tile slurry and grout
  • Calcium build-up
  • Solidified fats
  • Steel reinforced bars
  • Failed lining and patches
  • Discarded items such as wood, cables, and toys

A problem that often occurs is tree root ingress. The roots of trees and bushes can break into sewers and drains as they look for water. Our solution is affordable and can remove roots before preparing drains and pipes for CIPP relining
