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

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

    B. C. Tilghman: The Father of Sandblasting and Abrasive Nozzles

    The process of sandblasting as we know it today started around 1870 with a man named Benjamin Chew Tilghman, who observed abrasive wear on wind-blown desert windows. Tilghman also noticed the effect that high-velocity sand could have on hard material and began designing a machine that could propel sand at speeds much faster than the wind - and could concentrate this flow into a small stream.
