Hydroblasting to 40,000PSI
Our specialized equipment allows us to operate at a wide range of pressure to 40,000 psi. This provides a versatility that allows us to blast clean everything from industrial equipment to naval ships. Other applications include the cleaning of boilers, heat exchangers, and condensers. We are also able to use our higher pressure units to remove scale, paint, coatings, and concrete from ballast tanks or even water towers. Other applications include the cleaning of heat exchangers and condensers.
It has been proven that marine paint removal with 40,000PSI water blasting removes more of the chlorides and soluble salts that cause future corrosion under new coatings. Other methods of paint removal and/or preparation often need pre-washing to remove these contaminants. Hydroblasting eliminates this step, increasing quality and productivity.
Hydroblasting produces a white metal surface standard equal to NACE No. 5/SSPC-SP12. Major paint and coatings manufacturers have developed coatings specifically for ultra-high-pressure water-blasted surfaces. High-pressure water jetting is not only economical — with so many environmental advantages, it is becoming the preferred process for coating removal by many major industries.
We strive to consistently provide our clients with the optimal level of cleanliness and adhere to the most stringent of schedules. Whether your project calls for one technician and a low-flow, water-conserving wash nozzle, or one of our multiple high-flow nitrogen unloading systems, WMC has a full crew of trained technicians ready to accommodate your specific need.
In-house blast booth and dirty water recovery
Washington Marine Cleaning operates a blast booth at its Everett, WA facility that features full dirty-water recovery and onsite water treatment. We can transport your dirty or scaly equipment to our site, perform the cleaning in the controlled environment of our blast booth, and return it to you completely renewed.
