Aquajet recently introduced its Revojet 270 high-pressure pump. Highly mobile and designed for smaller-scale hydrodemolition projects, it is engineered to pair with the manufacturer’s most compact hydrodemolition robots, the Aqua Cutter 410 and the Ergo system, for such applications as small parking garage renovations and industrial cleaning.

“Our innovation comes from constantly listening to customers to create new solutions for tackling their projects,” said Roger Simonsson, Aquajet’s managing director. “As hydrodemolition gains popularity, customers are looking for ways to use the technology for more aspects of their work. Pairing the Revojet with our compact hydrodemolition machines gives contractors a powerful equipment arsenal for jobs in tighter spaces.”

The pump makes use of the Revo Control System, state-of-the-art technology that provides a wide range of functions for users to control and monitor the Revojet in a safe, user-friendly package.

Features include closed-loop pressure control or RPM control and smart pressure regulating that quickly finds the set pressure from the idle or auto-stop state. The system also has a mode that flushes the hoses without any nozzle mounted, along with RPM hold delay for hand lancing that minimizes delay when the high-pressure trigger is activated.

Operators can set parameters on the graphic colour display with instructions available in multiple languages. Users can see all important information in real time or view history of items such as the alarm list and trip meters of fuel consumption. The system also automatically tracks service schedules to minimize downtime.

According to manufacturer specs, the trailer unit weighs 3,500 kilograms (7,716 pounds), making it light enough to be towed with a pickup or large SUV. Additionally, a compact hydrodemolition robot, such as the Ergo, can be stowed in the same towing vehicle, providing simple transport between jobsites and quick setup without having to load the pump on a larger truck and trailer. A stationary Revojet unit is also available.

The Revojet provides performance equal to the company’s Power Pack 270 with a standard configuration of 2,800 bar and 40 litres per minute (40,610 psi and 10.6 gallons per minute). For operations requiring more power, two Revojets can be parallel operated to increase pump power from 270 to 540 horsepower (400 kW) as a flexible alternative to a larger pump.

The Revo remote, which can be used in place on the unit or detached for use, comes standard with the Revojet. Operators can control the Revojet from up to 300 metres (984 feet) away with extension cables.
