Increased Equipment Reliability

For decades, the predictable event after an unplanned plant shutdown was a long chain of rotary and instrumentation failures. Running from floor-to-floor bypassing pumps and valves a week after abrasive blasting had taken place was a common situation for maintenance crews in every industry all over the world.

Today the clean, dry, low-dust, ricochet-free technology offered by Sponge-Jet Sponge Media™ increases reliability of all plant equipment by eliminating the pulverized particles of dust common to all ordinary dry abrasive methods.

With Sponge-Jet, expect protection to:

  • Rotating equipment, shafts and bearings
  • Hydraulic and pneumatic cylinders
  • Electronics, switches, sensors and vision systems
  • Mechanical seals
  • Motors, engines, turbines and compressors
  • Heat transfer surfaces
  • Rails, guides, conveyors and transport systems

These fine, breathable, microscopic particles are not only toxic to humans but are a destructive enemy to all rotary, electronics and sensitive equipment.
