Technology Factsheet

Microwave Scabbling

Category: Decontamination > Thermal Surface Removal > Other
Reference # : Model No :

Microwave energy is directed at a concrete surface using a specialized waveguide applicator which heats both the concrete and free water present in the concrete matrix. Continued heating produces thermal and steam pressure induced mechanical stress that causes the concrete surface to burst. Loosened particles are then collected by a vacuum system. " Large Area Dry Decontamination Technology "


•Concrete particles are small enough to be removed by a vacuum system. •This process is fast, dry, generates little dust, and avoids mechanical impacts.


This equipment is difficult to maneuver when decontaminating corners. Slower processing rates than baseline technologies.
