Abrasive cold cutting
Cold cutting is a common means for either precision cutting or demolition purposes where the use of hot work cutting is not possible. Cutting can be carried out at a variety of pressures up to 2800 bar by using high pressure water manipulated and controlled remotely. Total Blasting have a variety of cold cutting systems available for a variety of situations.
machinery washdown and cleaning
Industrial machinery and equipment is a big investment for any company, so maintaining and cleaning these investments is fundamental in order to keep your operations running and reduce repair costs. Total Blasting can offer solutions for yard equipment cleaning, ship and vessel cleaning pumps, DNV certified rig equipment including rig safe zone 2 certified units, power plant equipment cleaning and recreational facilities.
Heat exchanger tubes, condenser tubes, evaporator tubes, boiler tubes, and fin fan tubes need to be maintained and regularly cleaned for operational efficiency. Interior-side and exterior-side, tubes can get fouled when a fluid’s chemical characteristics change, causing hardened salt deposits in or on the tubes. Fluids may also contain biological contaminants like algae as well as particles and sediment that can be deposited in and on the tubes. Likewise, a layer of corrosion products may gradually build up in and on the tubes. In time, all of these things can cause tube corrosion and blockages, which in turn lead to reduced operational efficiency and downtimes as tubes are repaired or a replacement is found. Ultimately, fouled tubes mean less effective cooling and, consequently, the processes that rely on their correct operation could suffer. Tube cleaning is, therefore, crucial to maintaining plants and facilities in many industries. Total Blasting provides industrial water jetting systems suitable for all tube sizes and all types of tube assemblies. We have automated tube cleaning equipment from industry leaders ilke Peinemann and Stoneage automated lancing machine with flexible and rigid options and a variety of nozzles and accessories for versatility, efficient cleaning, and the safety of human operators. We can also custom-build a high pressure water jet cleaning machine for certain applications.
