Efficient cleaning by high pressure water jets

In many areas, the efficient, environmentally friendly and gentle high-pressure water jet process is used to clean or remove residues. The blasting technique uses water and high pressure for applications such as de-varnishing, container cleaning or concrete refurbishment. Surface cleaning of, for example, road surfaces is quick and thorough.

URACA offers a wide range of high-pressure plunger pumps, units, tools and accessories for this technology.

High Pressure Water Jet Applications

There are hardly any limits to the possible uses of high-pressure water blasting. It can be used on streets, pavements or on walls for degumming, chewing gum removal, graffiti removal, facade renovation, restoration of historic buildings or for road marking. Also, the rust removal, paint stripping and descaling of workpieces of various kinds is possible.

Further areas of application are tank wagon cleaning, construction machine cleaning, system cleaning and sewer cleaning. Industries that rely on the process include the construction industry, metal industry, the craft trades, municipalities, shipyards, the oil and gas industry, forestry and aviation industry.

High pressure cleaning and its advantages

High-pressure water jetting uses clear water, which is pressed by a very high pressure pump through a nozzle and blasts it onto the workpiece. Upon impact of the water jet, dirt or other residues such as lacquers dissolve. Even with soft materials, a workpiece-friendly removal is possible. Compared to other processes, no chemical cleaning agents or solvents are used.

The main advantages of high-pressure water jetting are:

  • Environmentally friendly water as a cleaning medium
  • no chemical solvents or cleaning agents necessary
  • can be used for places that are hard to reach and for complex structures
  • gentle on the ground
  • fast, effective and customizable process
  • minimal material removal on the base material
  • use of process water in closed circuit possible
  • no wear of the blasting agent
  • addition of corrosion protection material to prevent rusting

Concrete restoration and concrete removal with high-pressure water jets

When refurbishing concrete, the high-pressure water jet removes the damaged concrete. The parts can then be re-boarded and concreted. High pressure water is ideally suited for the removal of the concrete. It removes the weathered or destroyed concrete quickly, reliably and gently releases the armoring or the construction steel mat.

Large areas are processed with the high-pressure water jetting in a short time. The exposed steel takes no damage from the water and the entire process of removal is free of oscillation and vibration. Cracks or further damage are not caused by work on the concrete. Compared to other mechanical processes, these are decisive advantages.
