The MOOSE® scabbler utilizes a highly effective, single-step floor scarification process with integral vacuum control; essentially 100% of the airborne particulate and over 99.5% of heavier solids are captured at the cutting tool surface. This helps prevent cross-contamination and minimizes the need for local containment and respiratory protection during operations.
The MOOSE® physically removes protective coatings, laitance, and concrete substrate to the depth of clean, uncontaminated concrete in increments of 1/16 to 3/16-inch (1.6 to 5mm). Even tough epoxy and urethane coatings can also be stripped in 18 inch (450mm) passes. The scarification technique leaves floors clean, with a uniformly keyed surface texture, ready to receive new protective coatings and overlayments.
Three integral sub-systems comprise the MOOSE® scabbler: the scabbling head assembly, the on-board HEPA vacuum system, and the six-wheeled chassis. The scabbling head houses seven independent reciprocating tungsten carbide-tipped bits. The bits pulverize the surface by delivering 1,200 hammer impacts per minute through pistons driven by compressed air.
Dust and debris are captured by the high performance, two-stage positive filtration HEPA vacuum system that deposits the waste directly into an on-board 23-gallon (87 liter) waste drum. First state efficiency is 99.5% at 1 micron; second stage HEPA efficiency is 99.97% at 0.3 microns. First stage filters are continuously and automatically cleaned by reverse-flow pulses of high pressure air, resulting in extended filter life of up to one year.
Mechanical process is completely dry and produces the minimum amount of waste. Easily decontaminated. Features an automatic full-drum alarm and a patented dustless drum exchange. Independent skid steering allows technology to pirouette 360 degrees about its geometric center. The scabbling head and chassis assemblies are designed to isolate the vibrations. Capable of scabbling to within 6 inches (150mm) of walls and other obstructions. Can easily fit through a standard doorway.
