One system and a range of media to replace other cleaning and surface preparation technologies while providing superior results. Protect what is important: People, Profits, Assets, Schedules, the Environment – every aspect of your operation is enhanced.
When you find yourself in a situation where you need to do blasting but need to control the dust and are concerned about safety and the environment, it's useful to know there's machinery that can do the job -Branch Manager, Brisk Waterproofing Co.
"The other cleaning methods are too destructive." Our goal is to leave the granite and tack and to remove only the dirt." - Project Manager, J.P. Cullen & Sons Inc. -Project Manager, J.P. Cullen & Sons Inc.
"Sponge-Jet Blast Media absorbs the contamination without re-depositing it on the material or the floor and walls of our containment structure, not to mention all of our breathing air samples have been “clean” to this point.” - Materials Engineering Technician, Westinghouse Electrical Company -Dave Jordan, Westinghouse Electrical Company C10
"This technology requires less logistics (preparation) than other alternative technologies commonly used in the oil industry for surface preparation jobs (e.g. hydro-blasting, wet-blasting and sandblasting)." - Ecopetrol S.A. -Nelson E. Rodriquez G, Ecopetrol S.A.
"No more back breaking labor loading the buckets with grit and loading into the blaster. My back has never been happier” - Boat Painter, US Coast Guard -Don Holcomb, US Coast Guard C30
"Dust produced by the process is near zero. The spent media doesn't travel very far from the point of impact, so it can be easily cleaned up. The sponge media is reusable, and we are successfully using it several times over." - Department Head, Todd Pacific Shipyards -Pete Judt A36, Todd Pacific Shipyards C36
"...we have been using [Sponge-Jet] for many years with nothing but excellent results, due to the fact the customer, Pemex Exploration and Production (PEP), continues regular operations while we use it." - Superintendent of Maintenance Operations, DIAVAZ -Francisco Sánchez Pineda, DIAVAZ
"We used your products... where no creation of dust, pollution prevention and a quality finish was a must for us and to meet our customer's satisfaction standards." - Program Manager, Navantia -Pedro Pedraza Bergillos, Navantia
"Sponge-Jet is a much cleaner process for the interior repair and prep of our rail cars. The greatly reduced dust levels and easy cleanup has been a great benefit. The cost is slightly higher than conventional media but the ability to recycle and other benefits far out weigh the initial cost.", Procurement & Operations -Billy Jones A65, Trinity Rail C65
"In regards to the new technology, our experience has being satisfactory from the technical stand point regarding the operators safety and the impact to the environment. The equipment is reliable and the substrate finish quality is excellent." - Ronmel García, Maintenance & Programming Superintendent, Petrosucre-PDVSA -Ronmel García A74, Petrosucre-PDVSA C74
Imagine for a moment that ACME Coatings Contractor has recently completed an important water tank exterior coatings project. The job, which involved removing lead-based paint from the 40 meter (135-ft) tall, 3.7-million liter,legged tank, went well from start to finish. The owners are happy, final payment has been rendered, and the project manager is filing the last bit of paperwork when the owner’s representative calls and asks, “Out of curiosity, how can we be sure that ACME didn’t leave lead dust under or around the tank?”
B. C. Tilghman: The Father of Sandblasting and Abrasive Nozzles
The process of sandblasting as we know it today started around 1870 with a man named Benjamin Chew Tilghman, who observed abrasive wear on wind-blown desert windows. Tilghman also noticed the effect that high-velocity sand could have on hard material and began designing a machine that could propel sand at speeds much faster than the wind - and could concentrate this flow into a small stream.
