Wet Blasting is a revolutionary concept that ensures significant economic savings as well as provide a superior clean. The consumption of media is reduced by almost 60% and the water per area unit is significantly reduced compared to similar methods. Another benefit is a 95% dust reduction when using wet abrasive blasting systems. This allows minimized or no containment, and no dust collectors or negative pressure.
Any media that is heavier than water can be utilized via this process. The unique pumping system contained in the Wet Blast system allows the use of blast media that can remove coatings as well as creating new surface profiles that conform to the standards issued by the SSPC for coatings specifications.
Each grain of media is encapsulated in a water jacket. In traditional media blasting the only impact is when the dry grain strikes the surface. The power of the Wet Blaster comes from the 3 punch combo.
Punch 1: The leading edge of the water jacket strikes the surface and initiates the process.
Punch 2: The media impacts the surface performing the bulk of the cleaning work.
Punch 3: The rear edge of the water jacket impacts the cleaning site finishing the removal.
Various surfaces require different forms of treatment, but with most abrasive forms of media they have limited applications. Persistent stains and deposits on sensitive surfaces can be extremely aggravating. Wet Blasting guarantees that you avoid the risk of damaging these sensitive substrates. This wet abrasive blasting technology, with specifically developed metering valves, allows an individual adjustment to the surface – and this means safety as well as peace of mind.
