In certain situations, especially in cleaning ships, oil rigs and areas where a lot of water is involved.
High pressure washing machine can be a fast and clean alternative to traditional grit blasting solutions.
Sandblasting use compressed air to propel particulate matter at high velocities to clean a surface or prepare it for the application of paints.
Sand blasting methods can also cause a number of problems including abrasive clumping, clogging and containment issues
As well as the need to purchase expensive grit and pay for its disposal.
While modern advances in abrasive blasting equipment such as air dryers and moisture removal systems. UHP water jetting system can alleviate some of these issues.
UHP water blasting unit comparing with sand blasting equipment
The impact of abrasive blasting on the surrounding environment requires the worksite to be evacuated.
During rainy conditions, sandblasting techniques have to be halted to avoid risking damage to expensive equipment .
And dealing with excessive formation of mud from the abrasive particulates.
UHP water blasting unit deliver several benefits including minimal preparation. The avoidance of abrasives, chemicals, solvents or caustics, and ability to work in all conditions.
Clean up is significantly easier without the need for containment and disposal of hazardous waste.
Watex , a specialist supplier of quality pressure washing machine. Their accessories and spare parts to the protective coatings and corrosion control industry for more than 35 years,
We offers diverse solutions for a variety of surface preparation and coating projects.
Accessories are necessary to wash
Most of the accessories such as lances, valves, nozzles and high pressure hoses help high pressure cleaning machine deliver their powerful payload.
Watex’s UHP water blasting unit can even be mounted on skids or trailers for increased mobility.
UHP water blasting unit can be used for surface preparation in many applications.
One ingenious method involves employing UHP water on surfaces previously treated with abrasive blasting.
Cleaning contaminants And soluble salts from the bottom of valleys within the existing surface profile.
Surfaces prepped in this manner are ideal for bonding, displaying less folding and flattening while featuring a texture of sharp peaks.
Watex demonstrator used a 2800 rpm rotating nozzle at 40,000 psi to remove one square foot of coating from an aluminium vessel in 24 seconds.
Implying an impressive rate of 4M²/hour, displaying the raw power and speed of Watex’s UHP water system.
Since pressure cleaner can produce comparable results to abrasive blasting equipment without environmental health hazards.
It is used in a wide variety of applications from shipyard coating removal, offshore oil rigs and weld inspections to plant maintenance.
With no dust generated during the operation, workers can continue with their daily tasks without worrying about a hazardous atmosphere.
The key benefits of UHP water blasting unit
No chemicals required during the pump working
Pure water is the only material for cleaning, and it is no need to use any toxic or abrasive chemicals at any point in the process.
Environmentally and friendly
Since no chemicals are used, there are no fumes or pollution directly caused by hydro jetting.
The water mixes with the remaining material after cleaning to form a slurry, but this can be processed to extract and recycle.
Training is quick and easy
Experience helps to improve efficiency, but the basic training does not require significant investment.
Low safety risk
Since the material being demolished is broken down into very small pieces .
Water is the only other material involved, safety risks when conducting hydro blasting are relatively low.
Although specific precautions are still needed, most alternative methods are significantly more dangerous.
