A modern UHP water blasting unit, is effective on epoxies, paints, resins, rust and scale build-up. In certain situations, especially in cleaning ships, oil rigs and areas where a lot of water is involved. Water blast unit , sometimes ,we called UHP water blaster machine in USA and UK . As you know water blaster as the toy for some children if we search in google. But UHP machine will be the professional name for the ultra high pressure water cleaning equipment .

Sandblasting use compressed air to propel particulate matter at high velocities to clean a surface or prepare it for the application of paints. But we should take care of the pollution and fatal disease like silicosis. If both factors can be controlled ,sand blasting also a good option .

Sand blasting methods can also cause a number of problems including abrasive clumping, clogging and containment issues. As well as the need to purchase expensive grit and pay for its disposal. While the abrasive cost is a high budget day by day ,rather like water can be recycle after water treatment .

Especially in some place lack of water , we have some clients in Middle east like Saudi Arabia and UAE ,Oman , Kuwait , they only consider our UHP water blasting unit as the main tool for their oil tank cleaning and ship hull maintenance .

While modern advances in abrasive blasting equipment such as air dryers and moisture removal systems. UHP water jetting system can alleviate some of these issues.

UHP water blasting unit comparing with sand blasting equipment

High pressure water blasting equipment can be a fast and clean alternative to traditional grit blasting solutions. And it will not bring airborne pollution in some hot weather places . While in winter ,if condition allowed , we also suggest sand blasting ,due to the water should be water from 1-50° for the inlet water of the boost pump .

The impact of abrasive blasting on the surrounding environment requires the worksite to be evacuated. During rainy conditions, sandblasting techniques have to be halted to avoid risking damage to expensive equipment .

And dealing with excessive formation of mud from the abrasive particulates. High pressure washing techniques using water jetting machine involve a heavy duty pump delivering the raw cleaning power of 25,000 psi of water to clear paints or coatings .

Clean up is significantly easier without the need for containment and disposal of hazardous waste. Watex , a professional supplier of quality UHP water blaster cleaning machine. With the right accessories and lower running cost spare parts for our clients get the reasonable cleaning service for their client or supply repairing for their own use .

After many years goes , the pressure go high is necessary due to the cleaning efficiency need from the final users . And many more advanced accessories like magnet crawler water blasting robot are widely used for both tank and ship hull . Whether the operator operate the machine by pressure valve or remote control system ,please put on the protective suit .

Accessories are necessary to wash

Most of the accessories such as lances, valves, nozzles and high pressure hoses help high pressure cleaning machine deliver their powerful payload.

Watex’s UHP water blasting unit can even be mounted on skids or trailers for increased mobility. UHP water blasting unit can be used for surface preparation in many applications.

One ingenious method involves employing UHP water on surfaces previously treated with abrasive blasting. Cleaning contaminants And soluble salts from the bottom of valleys within the existing surface profile.

Surfaces prepped in this manner are ideal for bonding, displaying less folding and flattening while featuring a texture of sharp peaks. Watex demonstrator used a 2800 rpm rotating nozzle at 40,000 psi to remove one square foot of coating from an aluminium vessel in 24 seconds.

Implying an impressive rate of 4M²/hour, displaying the raw power and speed of Watex’s UHP water system.
Since pressure cleaner can produce comparable results to abrasive blasting equipment without environmental health hazards.

It is used in a wide variety of applications from shipyard coating removal, offshore oil rigs and weld inspections to plant maintenance.

With no dust generated during the operation, workers can continue with their daily tasks without worrying about a hazardous atmosphere. For hard epoxy removal , we also supply 2500 bar ,2800 bar , and 3000 bar machine for you chosen . But it has a high requirement for the safety of the operator . Mostly , we always suggest them consider protective coating and suit for whole of the body .

The key benefits of UHP water blasting unit

UHP water blasting unit deliver several benefits including minimal preparation. The avoidance of abrasives, chemicals, solvents or caustics, and ability to work in all conditions. We offers diverse solutions for a variety of surface preparation and coating projects.

No chemicals required during the pump working

Pure water is the only material for cleaning, and it is no need to use any toxic or abrasive chemicals at any point in the process.

Environmentally and friendly

Since no chemicals are used, there are no fumes or pollution directly caused by hydro jetting.

The water mixes with the remaining material after cleaning to form a slurry, but this can be processed to extract and recycle.

Training is quick and easy

Experience helps to improve efficiency, but the basic training does not require significant investment.

Low safety risk

Since the material being demolished is broken down into very small pieces .

Water is the only other material involved, safety risks when conducting hydro blasting are relatively low.

Although specific precautions are still needed, most alternative methods are significantly more dangerous.
