J.T. Thorpe & Son, Inc. provides refractory maintenance for the industrial marketplace throughout North America. JTT’s clients benefit from JTT’s innovative solutions to difficult refractory problems. Hydro demolition is another arrow in JTT’s quiver of innovative solutions for the traditionally difficult issue of demolishing vibration castables in riser lines. Recently, JTT removed 60 lineal feet x 7 foot diameter x 5” thick of a coked up vibration castable in days rather than weeks. The mechanized hydro-demolition equipment saved thousands of man hours, 10 days on the turnaround, and dramatically reduced the risk for injury. JTT’s innovation resulted in millions of dollars in operational savings to the customer compared to having performed the work in the traditional chipping gun manner. This unique safe removal process does not damage the steel or the anchors.

Let J.T. Thorpe & Son, Inc. provide you with an innovative solution to meet your demolition requirements today.
