Nuclear Decommissioning

Diamond wires to cut contamned concrete or steel

Dismantling a contamned nuclear power site or making some restoration in some hazardous or dangerous structures it's more frequent than in the past. The groving interest for these procedures require a more efficient cutting tool able to perform the job quickly, safetly and naturally without water.

The new LSR-DC is the diamond wire able to performe it.

It's designed to cut concrete or metal structures without water. The conical shape permit a fast cut and increase the life of the tool. To cool the diamond wire during he cut it could be used some additional tools but the sinple comressed air is the most used (for more information please contact our RD Department)

The shape of the beads and the extremely high resistant nichel bond increased the capacity of the diamond to cut steel with less resistance. In the meantime the assembly was perfected to assure a high resistace protection duringt the cut action. High efficiency and reliability are a must for this diamond wire.


The LSR-DC/S is the special designed diamond wire for the dry cut on all metal structures, from the Stainless Steel to the Titanium (?) passing trought the Nodular Steel and the Carbon Steel.

A special UsMesh 25/30 diamond wire is used to grant a longe life and a fast cut action and the exclusive SHX (?) assembly permit to use the diamond wire without the water colling action. 

Some additional cooling system are developed to increase the life reducng the working temperature.


As the traditional conical beads the LSR-DC/S diamond wire uses the patented concept of the diamond deposit on an inclined plane to obtain a higher cutting speed and a longer life. The diamond is consumed progressively form the external diamenter to the inner one and as the external is weared out a new diamond take the place of the old one starting a new cutting action.This way the patent allows a multilayer behavior on a traditional single layer tool.


This isn't the only exclusive featuer for the LSR-S. The special SHX assembly provides a high resistance cover to protect the steel rope from external abrasive action. The polimer used to coat the steel cable is very flexible and has a high adesion capacity which allows to maintan a perfect covering during all the life of the wire.



The LSR-DC/C is the concrete dry cutting verison of the LSR-DC family diamond wire.


The same mechanical caracheristic of the steel cutting version is applied on the LSR-DC/C we change only the kind of the diamond properly to perform the most useful cut.


In this application are used some additional vacuum air system to reduce the dust contamination.

LSR-S 40 BPM for OffShore Cutting

Electroplated Tapered beads ø10,8mm - 40 BPM

LSR-S is a special electroplated diamond wire with tapered beads able to cut any underwater steel structures as pipelines.Due to its particular shape this diamond wire gives the maximum performance and reliability. LSR-S is assembled with the exclusive SHX polimeric coating able to protect the steel rope in any application. Normally this diamond wire is assembled with 40 BPM, but we can change the number of beads to adapt to different kind of application.
