Reduce Variables And Liabilities

Increase asset life and the time between shutdowns. Alleviate community concerns and optimize strategic asset management. Sponge-Jet technology replaces disruptive surface preparation practices, reducing up to 30% of shut-down time – while increasing coating life. Ultimately one can extend both operational status and maintain asset value. Non-invasive Sponge Blasting technology allows:

  • Most preparation and coating work to be achieved during regular operations (leaving shutdowns free for other trades)
  • Management to improve, predict and control their operational schedules
  • Management to eliminate community environmental concerns by reducing hazardous fugitive emissions

Testimonials

"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 & Programing Superintendent, Petrosucre-PDVSA

"This system is ideal for use with motors since it reduces dust and particulate normally generated during surface preparation. This significantly reduces the risk of contaminating the motor." - Wally Elger, Noesis, Inc.

“Composite media abrasives helped in saving us time and money that would have gone to a shipyard.” - Ken Peterson, Marine Superintendent, Sandy Hook Pilots

"We recommend Sponge-Jet as an environmental friendly abrasive blasting method which fulfills our health and environmental regulatory requirement.” - Mechanical Manager, TownGas

  • Surface Preparation 101

    Imagine a 50 year old municipal water tank. It’s only been five years since it was last coated, but for some reason the paint is already starting to fail. Rust can be seen spotting all over the tank’s exterior. If we were to do a forensic style analysis on the surface of the tank and the flaking paint chips, we’d most likely see that poor surface preparation is to blame for the failure.
