Laser Ablation Being Used On An Active Bridge in CT

Last year, crews in Connecticut and Virginia used laser ablation coating removal (LACR) to remove corrosion and lead-based paint from bridge I-beams to prepare them for re-painting.

A superior alternative to traditional media blasting, the hand-held laser eliminates the need for worksite containment zones, enabling traffic to flow with minimal disruption.

This solution also improves worker safety, by requiring very little PPE and by eliminating exposure to hazardous materials.

Surface contaminants not vaporized by the laser are collected using a laser fume extractor and 3-stage filter, reducing the hazardous waste by more than 99%.

  • Provides a clean and contaminant free surface with little or nothing to clean-up.
  • Mitigates environmental risks associated with lead paint removal.
  • Uses no consumable blast media or chemicals.
  • Creates no mixed secondary waste to collect and dispose.
  • Does not remove or damage the base metal.
  • Does not require dust containment.
  • Can be operated near and around other activities using laser safety curtains.
  • Operates at a much lower noise level compared to abrasive blasting or needle guns.
  • Has a small equipment footprint on-site to eliminate or minimize the need for road closures.
