Cryogenic Blasting uses dry ice pellets that replace blasting medias to clean suraccfes and strip various coatings. The beauty of dry ice blasting is that when the dry ice pellets hit the surface they subliminate turning back in to Co2 gas thus meaning the only waste is the coatings that have been removed from the item being cleaned. Co2 blasting is widely used for cleaning food and drink factories manufacturing facilities and cleaning delicate aviation parts like landing gear as the sublimation process is great fro removing rubber splatter without harming the item.
Soda blasting is an effective soft blasting process. It was originally developed for the cleaning of the Statue of Liberty in New York. The system used for this form of blasting is similar to conventional shot blasting equipment except the vessel is continually pressurised even when letting off the dead man handle. This is a great system fro the removal of grime and graffiti on walls and paved areas, the cleaning of delicate stone work and for stripping paints off of delicate metal sub straights.
Sponge blasting is a fantastic alternative to conventional grit blasting. the particles of grit are suspended within the polyurethane sponge, meaning as you blast with this media upon impact the sponge squashes down causing the media to impact the surface requiring removal, it then bounces off regaining its sponge shape and size along with absorbing a high majority of the dust from the cleaning process. This system is ideal for lead abatement, working in confined spaces and working on open construction sites.
We run a 2400 BAR 35'000 PSI UHP blasting unit. Our staff our fully trained to use such powerful equipment and full PPE systems are always worn. This method of preparation is ideal for the cleaning of Navigation buoys, ships hulls, sheet pilling, removal of road markings, ship decks and Ro Ro Ships.
This is the grandfather of blasting the conventional blasting system used the world over for removing coatings and profiling new metals to remove mill scale prior to paint application. We can also clean stone work, ships hulls, lock gates, storage tanks, piers and bridges with this method and can also use a huge range of medias. Medias we can use range from chilled iron, iron silicate, garnet, olivine, recycled glass, aluminium oxide..
We run a wide range of Trelawny Scabblers from pole low vibration units to pram style units, these are ideal for the cleaning of decks on ships or preparing concrete floors.
