Ultra high-pressure water jetting is a highly efficient cleaning method. It can be used not only to remove old coating but also to remove rust, biofilm, limescale and much more. As with other cleaning methods, we are able to apply this cleaning method in horizontal and vertical pipes, bends and reducers.
Main applications of high-pressure water jetting in pipeline systems:
Rust, biofilm and limescale removal
Ultra High-Pressure Water Jetting
Up to 3000 bar (43511 PSI) 26 l/min (0,92 CFM)
How It Works:
High pressure water jetting uses a high-pressure water stream for cleaning and/or removing loose paint, mold, rust, grime, limescale, dust, mud and dirt from pipe surfaces. A small amount of abrasive material can be added to speed up the process. The abrasive additive also allows using a high-pressure water jet for surface preparation for next technological steps. Used water can be recaptured and reused. In that way, waste can be reduced.
Depending on the surface to be cleaned, higher or lower operating pressure is used, as well as the appropriate nozzle type and determining the nozzle’s distance from the surface.
Water is a commonly used, a prime cleaning agent due to its capacity to dissolve more substances than most other liquids. Water is often considered to be a “universal solvent.” Water-soluble dirt is dissolved until nothing remains on the surface. High pressure enhances the water’s cleaning ability by using high kinetic energy to weaken and lift the incrustations, coatings and dirt from the surface, which is then followed by a constant water stream to rinse the dirt away.
The flow and speed of pressurized water has to be adjusted accordingly to the difficulty of the cleaning job. High-pressure water jetting is an effective, environmentally friendly and efficient way to carry out domestic, industrial and commercial cleaning challenges.
