Water blaster machine , also called waterblaster, uses a high pressure water more than (40,000 PSI or more) to remove rust, old paint, rubber, chemicals, corrosion, or other heavy buildups without damage to the surface below.

It provides a very effective method for cleaning large surfaces, heat transfer device, tanks and vessels, pipes /tubes and process equipment and reactor . Water jetting uses only water, making it washing methods without sand .

Watex has a comprehensive range of high pressure waterblaster machine to meet the requirements of any industrial application. Our high pressure blasting machine removes dirt, scale, and other unwanted materials from surfaces and structures.

Water blast machine, or water blaster cleaning machine is widely used process for the removal of material, coating, or contamination from the surface of material in a competitive price . Watex has experience with all types of water blasters and specializes water jet blasting technology .

Water blast machine process removes coatings with one of two different mechanisms: erosion or delamination. Erosion is used on the majority of hard coatings such as metal. A special nozzle is used to break up the water stream into high strong droplets, which impact the surface of the coating. This causes small pieces of the coating escape from the surface, leaving the substrate intact.

Why use Watex’s water blaster machine?

Watex’s high pressure waterblaster machine utilizes a combination of water and air pressure. This minimizes fatigue on the asset being cleaned and leaves little to no environmental impact, as no additives or abrasives are used. Keeping your equipment clean ensures optimal operating conditions, potentially minimizes asset downtime.

The other method of removal is delamination, such as paint, adhesives, ceramic and abradable thermal sprayed coatings. With these softer coatings a nozzle keeps the waterjet stream intact, allowing it to penetrate the coating and break the surface. Waterjet cleaning spreading out to delaminate the coating at the bond interface.
Our water blaster machine is perfect for:

Hydro demolition with water blaster machine

Hydro demolition is a process that can be used instead of traditional high impact percussion tools such as jackhammers, which are known to cause peripheral structural damage. The beauty of water blaster machine is that it can be concentrated on smaller areas and avoids damaging support or reinforcement structures.

Waterblaster machine can be used on a variety of surfaces including concrete and road maintenance, and removes the risk of manual handling and vibration shock associated with percussion demolition.

We can undertake any size high pressure water jetting and ultra high pressure jet service for client’s side and give them professional cleaning solution . And offering a range of state-of-the-art mobile equipment with water pressure capability of up to 40.000 psi .

Waterblaster machine can be used for a variety of locations, including sewers, drains, tanks, marine vessels, bridges, buildings, manufacturing plant facilities and other amenities. Including lots of industry cleaning .

20000 psi- 40000 psi water blaster machine

Much faster cleaning rates are achieved with this type of removal as compared to the hard coatings that require erosion removal. It is crucial that water jet removal is understood so that the correct water jet cleaning nozzle and process parameters are selected.

Ultra high pressure water jet blasting uses water that is pressurized between 14,500psi. From 20,000psi to 40,000 psi to remove coatings and debris from substrates. Most water jet cleaning solution consist of the following subsystems:

  • Water jet pump to pressurize the water
  • Flat nozzle and rotate cleaning head
  • High pressure cleaning gun
  • Process control devices
  • Protective suit

Water blaster equipment process

Water blaster machine process offers many benefits over competing conventional method to remove coatings. Traditionally coatings removed by the use of chemicals or abrasive blasting or machining. Chemical removal is expensive, slow, and not environmentally.

Abrasive blasting or machining is more cost effective and faster than chemical processing. But cannot be used for lots of cleaning , which usually results in removal of excessive material, hence limiting the life of these parts.

Water blaster machine is fast, environmentally friendly, and can only remove the coating with minimal to no substrate removal. It make it the best alternative for coating removal for critical applications such as removal of thermal sprayed coating from gas turbine components.

Surface preparation by UHP water jet cleaning machine price uses pure water at pressure more than 40,000psi.  No inhibitors or other media added to remove previously applied coatings.  High pressure cleaning gun is available with multiple nozzles and barrel lengths. 

Various types of coatings require different flow rates and pressures. The pressure is regulated by the pump and the flow rate is determined and different types of nozzles .

Two types of discharge water from the water blaster machine

There are two types of discharge water from the water blaster machine. Water discharged at the pump is cooling water combining with chiller system.  It has gone through the filtration system and is used for cooling purposes. This water is discharged on the ground or collected, cooled, and reused.

Water jet blasting machine discharge water typically requires treatment.  After the water strikes the surface. The runoff water can have paint chips, grease, coating particulates, or other solid or dissolved solids.  The water can be put through filtration to collect solids.  Then the filtered water is typically allowed to be discharged on the ground or into sewer treatment .

Lead paint is a good example of a coating that will not mix with water.  By removing the paint particles, the water is then lead free.  This drastically reduces solid waste disposal on lead projects versus disposal of grit mixed with lead paint particles.
