Hydromilling was specified for a major deck rehabilitation project in Mississippi where specifications called for a new overlay for the entire deck, 4,200 feet long by 24 feet wide, preceded by the removal of 1.5-inches of aged concrete from the deck and all defective and delaminated concrete below that level by means of ultra high pressure hydromilling. Hydromilling was specified because of concern for secondary damage to the deck, such as microcracks and rebar debonding, associated with traditional, mechanical or precussive concrete removal methods such as rotomilling and jackhammering. The principal characteristics of the hydromills are noted, and the advantages of using them are listed.
