Robotic Demolition

Safely and efficiently help customers get their units back on line faster and cheaper.

Brokk_StaticPicThorpe has the Brokk demolition equipment, experience and expertise to safely and efficiently help customers get units back on line faster, cheaper and safer.

Under the expert guidance of highly experienced operators, our Brokks can outwork large teams of men while most importantly, making the workplace safer. Operators control these pieces of equipment via remote control while remaining a safe distance from environments that are still too hot or unsafe for people to work. This allows work to start sooner and finish faster with fewer people and improved safety for all those involved.

The Most Advanced Brokk Demolition Machinery Available

Thorpe owns and maintains a fleet of the most advanced robotic demolition machinery available today; the Brokks 250, 180, 160, 150 and 90 demolition robots, and is able to recommend the best machine for your job. Brokk demolition equipment is specifically designed to work in confined spaces, can be used for many different types of demolition, and is especially effective in Rotary Kilns. Brokks are compact, maneuverable and generate an extraordinary amount of hitting power. To better protect against equipment issues during outages, Thorpe owns and maintains multiple versions Brokk, including an inventory of critical replacement parts.

Brokk Debris Removal

Demolition is only the first step of the job. Next, Thorpe has the experienced crews and the equipment to safely and quickly remove the debris generated by the Brokks. This includes small Bobcats with specially modified buckets to meet the needs of the job. We also have motorized conveyors and other equipment as needed to safely expedite debris removal.

While some jobs require only the removal of process restrictions (coatings, slag, etc.), Thorpe has 60 years’ of experience installing new lining materials to help return operating equipment to service; safely and quickly in a single source supply.
