What Is Ultra High Pressure Water Blasting?

Ultra high pressure water blasting is becoming increasingly popular, and rightly so. UHP water blasting is ideal for industrial cleaning and cleans heavily contaminated surfaces in a way that is not only efficient but also cost-effective and environmentally friendly.

What does ultra high pressure water blasting clean?

Ultra high water blasting is a powerful and versatile cleaning method designed to tackle heavily contaminated surfaces across a wide range of applications. It is highly effective in removing stubborn grime, sludge, bitumen, and even graffiti from various surfaces such as walls, footpaths, boat ramps, bridges, tanks, and in industrial and commercial settings. This specialised technique can also be employed for cutting purposes, although it is only used very rarely on concrete and steel.

UHP blasting proves to be a non-destructive digging method, making it ideal for excavating soil, earth, and bitumen/road surfaces without causing damage. Furthermore, this technique is instrumental in cleaning the insides of tankers, ensuring the removal of tough substances like bitumen, fuel, and oils, and maintaining a high level of cleanliness and safety for transportation and industrial processes. With its versatility and efficiency, ultra high water blasting stands as a reliable solution for a multitude of challenging cleaning and maintenance tasks.

How does ultra high pressure water blasting work?

Using water under extremely high pressure (ranging from 25,000 to 36,000 psi), high pressure water blasting offers an ingenious solution for cleaning heavily contaminated surfaces. Its adaptable pressure settings ensure the right amount of force is applied, effectively removing all surface contaminants. Compared to other cleaning methods, this industrial cleaning technique proves exceptionally efficient, particularly when dealing with stubborn substances.

The process involves a specialised nozzle that directs a highly pressurised stream of water precisely to the targeted area. Drawing water from a reservoir, the jetting equipment’s pumps pressurise and release the water forcefully. With the capability to reach pressures of up to 36,000 psi (2,482 bar) and adjustable levels of abrasiveness, this method delivers the required force for any cleaning task. Additionally, the combination of the high-pressure water jet and the nozzle enables access to challenging and previously inaccessible areas, surpassing the limitations of many other cleaning equipments.
