Watex using water blasting eliminates the harmful and often damaging side effects produced by hydro blasting such as airborne dust, chemical pollution and surface ingrained residual blasting materials.
It is the healthy, environmentally friendly method of surface preparation.
The energy of the high velocity water jetting into the pores in the metal surface flushing out solid foreign matter and non water soluble pollutants such as oil and grease.
The amount of waste produced is far less than that produced by dry blasting. It is only the waste water, old paint, marine growth and rust which is easily collected for separation and disposal.
No shrouding for water blasting
Water can be treated for disposal or recycling.Shrouding the work area is not necessary.
Water will not harm nearby things as is often the case with ingress of flying grit particles nor is there any unhealthy dust to distress yard personnel.
Substrates prepared by Watex water blasting can meet the quality requirements set by international paint manufacturers and standards authorities for the application of new coatings.
Many factors affect water blast
Water pressure necessary depends upon the condition of the existing surface layers , the type of coating to be applied .
The heart of any high pressure cleaning or ultra high pressure blasting system is the pump unit.
They can also be mounted in a range of heavy duty containers particularly suitable for the dockyard environment.
Whether it involves ships, painting cubicles or painted metal roofs: With high-pressure water, paint can be efficiently removed easy.
With its different cleaning systems, Watex offers a cleaning system for all applications. High pressure water blasting pumps can be combined with matching parts and coordinated to the paint-removal substrate.
By the use of high-pressure guns, surface cleaners .Watex offer extensive options for removing paint with high pressure water.
In painting cubicles ,like the automotive industry, so-called overspray arises during the painting process.
Overspray is made up of the paint which does not adhere to the workpiece and leaks out into the environment.
These exhaust air systems frequently have a large surface area and are covered with grates set in the ground of the painting cubicles.
A large percentage of this overspray collects on these grates, and in the ducts leading from them.
These system have to be cleaned frequently and, in case of extensive use, even daily.
