Facility Maintenance

Increased MTBR (Mean Time Between Repairs)

Asset Management, the need for corrosion mitigation or facility and equipment cleaning – are under constant constraint – because of:

  • Production requirements
  • Maintenance delays
  • Market volatility
  • Budget restrictions
  • Safety & environmental regulations

The inability to shut down or disrupt production has led many facilities to forego projects, placing incalculable stress on assets. To achieve the benefits offered by advanced coatings better surface preparation is required. Sponge Media blasting allows for properly cleaned or prepared surfaces with minimal labor disruption or unnecessary shutdown.

Features & Benefits

  • Increase time between shut downs
  • Protect integrity & reliability of equipment
  • Blasting on operating equipment
  • Improve worker health and safety
  • Lower project costs
  • Reliability of schedule & budget
  • Improved coating performance

    Brick has been used for the construction of homes and buildings since ancient times. The first known brick was discovered on an archeology site in the Middle East, dating its use back to 7500BC. This discovery means humans started using brick 3,000 years before the invention of the wheel! Similar to the wheel, the materials used to make brick has evolved.

  • Corrosion Control with Abrasive Blasting

    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.
