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
