UHP (Ultra High Pressure) water blasting is often the preferred choice where dry blast cleaning is not practical. The advantages are that it’s a lot cleaner as you are using water as the cutting/cleaning media so it is very environmentally friendly, spark-free and with virtually no waste disposal – rust and paint can be contained using permeable membrane and the water runs away to drainage.
Water blasting will take off any coating, rust, grease or any other day to day grime and prepare the steel for a fresh coating system. It is also the preferred method for taking off very hardened materials internally and externally prior to grit blasting. Experienced operators can virtually “feather back” coat by coat.
