Avoid Premature Equipment Failure

Fine atomized abrasives are the enemy of machinery and equipment as well as those responsible for keeping them operating. Micron-sized abrasive particles travel freely throughout a plant and can penetrate deep into every component, damaging shafts, cylinders, electronics, switches, sensors, bearings, mechanical seals and all rotating or moving parts. Thermal, electrical and corrosive properties of abrasives can also take a toll on electronics.

Uncontained dust from abrasive blasting can destroy valuable machinery like:

  • Turbines
  • Compressors
  • Actuated valves
  • Ventilators
  • Motors & engines
  • Pump

Sponge-Jet’s MicroContainment™ technology allows for abrasive blasting directly adjacent to sensitive equipment – with an 98% reduction in dust; it also nearly eliminates the damaging ricochet commonly associated with ordinary abrasives.


Features & Benefits

  • Simplify job staging
  • Blast on operating equipment
  • Extend time between repairs
  • Increase production and profits
  • Protect integrity and reliability of equipment

    Corrosion is everywhere - from a speck of rust on a bridge’s bolt to the advanced chemical erosion of a process pump, to blistering paint on a building’s structural steel, fences, and railings. When coatings fail and metal components oxidize, property and infrastructure risk further damage. Corrosion weakens metal from the outside in - untreated metal can rust away completely, leaving behind gaping holes.
