What Is Hydro Blasting
Hydro blasting is one of our industrial services. This is a powerful technique that is used for cleaning surfaces both inside and outside. Using the force of highly pressurized water alone, this technique removes built up grime.
Unlike other cleaning techniques, hydro blasting does not use abrasive substances, which can create issues with dust and lead to more disposal requirements for the spent abrasives. Instead, it uses a pressure pump and the right nozzle(s) to shoot water out at pressures above 10,000 psi for high pressure and above 25,000 psi for ultra high pressure hydro blasting.
Benefits of Hydro Blasting
In contrast to abrasive cleaning methods, using hydro blasting tends to be safer and result in less cleanup. Although a worker coming into contact with the high-pressure water is dangerous, the chemical makeup of the water itself is not. This means that if the substance you are cleaning is nonhazardous, the water can be left to evaporate. These are a couple of reasons that hydro blasting is becoming more popular.
Hydro blasting can also focus on smaller areas in difficult-to-reach places or nearby sensitive surfaces. Because it can be so targeted, you can remove coatings of filth or rust in one place without damaging neighboring surfaces.
Hydro blasters are strong tools, so to avoid potential injuries, it is vital that they are used properly by people who have the requisite knowledge for operation. In addition to the pressure of the water, it is important to be aware that some residues are resistant to blasting techniques.
