High Pressure Water Jetting
Efficient drainage is never a problem until it stops working. All drainage systems need cleaning at some point in time. Scale, silt, fat and grease inevitably accumulate, reducing capacity and flow, and can even cause a total blockage.
High pressure water jetting is an effective cleaning technique for use in drains, sewers and pipework systems. It can be used to remove relatively soft silt or hard substances such as scale or cement.
Blockages in drains, sewers and stack pipes can be cleaned using this highly effective technique. Powerful jets of water developing pressures of up to 4000psi strip deposits from pipe walls, flush out debris and restore free-flowing conditions.
High pressure water jetting can also be used to ensure that process pipework is clean and clear of obstructions. Naturally, when scale and residue build up, manufacturing efficiency declines. Boiler scale, polymer resins, carbon deposits, milk scale and even concrete can be prised away with relative ease.
But that is not all – the versatility is endless. Used in conjunction with hand-held lances, jets of water can strip floors, walls, tanks and machinery of the toughest dirt, shifting rubber deposits, oil, hardened paints, graffiti and cement spillages.
Other applications using high pressure water jetting include the cleaning of rubbish chutes and skips, the removal of road and runway markings and cleaning grease from garage floors.
