Powered by water pressure, the HydroCut self-propelled cutter generates 5 hp at 30,000 rpm to mill quickly and cleanly through tough materials. Its unique hydro-powered design solves the biggest shortcomings of pneumatic cutters: stalls, sloppy cuts, poor visibility, and the need for post-cut brushing and auxiliary CCTV/jetting.
Water cooling keeps HydroCut's motor from overheating and extends cutter bit life. Designed with few wearing parts, the moisture-tolerant motor requires scant maintenance, most of which can be performed in the field. Diamond-impregnated hardened-steel Kardiam cutter bits last up to 100 hours, minimizing the disruption and expense of frequent bit changes.
HydroCut's onboard cameras view work as it is being performed. To ensure unobstructed viewing, debris is washed from the lens by integral water nozzles. High-speed cutting and a remotely activated stabilizer arm minimize camera vibration.
Because HydroCut is self propelled, an operator needn’t waste effort stringing winch lines from secondary access points. The standalone HydroCut requires only a single point of entry and no auxiliary CCTV or jetter. What’s more, bits and wheels change out rapidly to address practically any combination of pipe size and material.
Available in four sizes, HydroCut works in pipelines 4-24 inches in diameter. Its mill arm swivels 400 degrees and articulates 30 degrees. Portable and motorized reels are available with cable/hose assemblies 165, 260, 330 and 500 ft long. Freestanding and van-mount controls are also available. A complete HydroCut system draws 6A at 110 Vac and requires 3.5 gpm water at 3000 psi.
