In ever-changing sectors where new developments are the order of the day. High efficiency, low emissions and high production are forcing upgrades, new constructions and expansion. For example:
All of the above can benefit from Sponge-Jet’s dry, clean and reusable media, which allows users to operate and sustain their assets without disrupting normal operations.
Sponge Blasting is a proven tool to reduce shutdown time for repairs and new construction while enhancing worker safety and minimizing environmental effects.
Cleaning corroded metal in liquid gas plant YPF Argentina; high moisture location accelerated corrosion on condenser, crude oil, water and refrigeration piping.
Pipe restoration in water treatment plant; Severe coating failure on pipes in digester building surrounded by other delicate (insulated pipes) called for tar-based coating removal using Sponge-Jet, low rebound abrasives.
Taiwanese plastics manufacturer; after premature coating failure on compressed air tanks, the maintenance department relied on the contractor and Sponge-Jet surface preparation with the goal to provide an Sa3 (SSPC SP-5 / NACE 1), White Metal Blast Cleaning finish and match the designed life of the steel tanks.
Blasting chemical tanks at Monsanto Round-Up manufacturing plant; maintenance personal use Sponge-Jet as the only safe and practical solution for routine coating maintenance on flanges and tank internals of ten confined-space chemical tanks.
