Hazardous Environment Services

Custom Fabricated Specialty Tooling for Hydro Demolition Services

When your project requires hydro demolition or water cutting services in a hazardous (explosive or radioactive) environment, AK Services has the expertise, experience and equipment to achieve your goals.

Using robotic devices that accommodate a variety of working environments and applications, the AK Services team has the expertise and equipment to efficiently complete any hazardous environment project.

Abrasive jet cutting is an effective method of “cold cutting” to safely cut in explosive atmospheres such as fuel tanks. more

We use both manual and robotically-operated water jetting tools – making it possible to decontaminate, decommission, and remediate even highly irradiated environments.
