What is High Pressure Water Blasting?

High pressure water blasting serves as an effective cleaning technique employed to eliminate the accumulation of dirt, scale, and contaminants on various surfaces.

When you consider the rigorous nature of daily industrial work, it is not surprising that such buildup occurs easily. This advanced method of high-pressure cleaning surpasses traditional approaches in terms of speed and efficiency.

Its versatile applications encompass surface preparation, cleaning, pipe and tank maintenance, removal of scale, paint, or dust, and even pathways and roads. The versatility of high pressure water blasting contributes to its popularity in Brisbane and beyond.

How does it work?

A specialised nozzle directs a highly pressurised stream of water to the targeted area. The jetting equipment’s pumps draw water from a reservoir, which is then pressurised and forcefully released. With water pressure reaching up to 36,000 psi / 2,482 bar and customisable levels of abrasiveness, this technique provides the necessary force for any task at hand. The combination of the nozzle and high pressure allows access to challenging and inaccessible areas.

Our team of professionals in high pressure water blasting extends their services to a diverse range of locations, including sewerage systems, drains, tanks, marine vessels, bridges, buildings, manufacturing plant facilities, and other amenities.

Why Use Water Over Dry Blasting?

  • Environmentally friendly: Our high pressure water blasting services in Brisbane offer an environmentally conscious approach to ensure safety and cleanliness in industrial areas. Unlike dry blasting methods that employ materials like coal slag, smelter slag, and sand, which can be detrimental to the environment, our water blasting technique minimises environmental impact. Coal and smelter slags can release hazardous pollutants into the air, while sand rapidly turns into dust. In contrast, high pressure water blasting involves no additives or abrasives, resulting in negligible environmental impact. By using only water and pressure, our method not only cleans the surface area effectively but also ensures the preservation of equipment. 
  • Lower costs and increased productivity: Our water blasting equipment relies solely on pure water for the cleaning process, reducing overall costs. Moreover, since water is the primary component, other concurrent projects can proceed simultaneously, thereby minimising the overall project duration.
