HP & UHP Jetting Services
Water Jetting is a versatile process and can be used for a diverse range of applications. High Pressure (HP) and Ultra High Pressure (UHP) Water Jetting is an industrial process which makes use of specialist equipment to carry out a range of applications including industrial cleaning, the removal of road markings and breaking up of solid concrete. The most powerful Water Jetting equipment can produce pressures of up to 30,000 ps. As a result it has to be handled by highly trained operators.
What are the applications of Water Jetting?
Paint and Coating Removal
There are a variety of ways in which paint and other coatings can be removed from a surface, including burning. However there is no safer or environmentally friendly way to remove paint than with Water Jetting.
Sand Blasting or Graffiti Removal
It’s also possible to add sand to a water jet, allowing it to be used to sandblast a wall, or to use the equipment to remove graffiti from walls
Airfield Rubber Removal & Runway Maintenance
Airfield runways require a certain amount of friction to prevent planes from skidding on landing or take-off. Over time a variety of debris can build up, reducing this friction. Regular maintenance using Water Jetting can remove this without damage to the runway’s surface, re-establish the appropriate level of friction.
Road Marking Removal
Road markings traditionally need to be burned off which is a time consuming process. In addition the process produces dangerous smoke and fumes which are damaging to the environment. Water Jetting can be used to remove various types of road markings in a fast, safe, efficient, and environmentally friendly manner.
Pipe, Heat Exchanger & Industrial Tank Cleaning
Water Jetting is the ideal process for cleaning a range of industrial materials including pipes, pipe bundles and heat exchangers and industrial tanks and vessels. Although there are other methods available, Water Jetting offers a superior clean. Using robotic techniques, materials are cleaned to the highest standards without the need for use of chemicals, making it the most environmentally friendly method available.
Water Jetting is usually preferable to other cleaning methods because there are so few side-effects. Firstly, the process doesn’t cause vibrations, so it can be used to clean buildings without any risk of damaging the fabric of the structure. Furthermore it doesn’t create dust, so there are no health risks for passers-by.
Water Jetting is more sophisticated than simply using brute force to clean. This is a highly versatile cleaning solution. As well as adjusting the pressure, it is possible to heat the water, or to add cleaning chemicals to the water jet. This versatility makes it possible to remove deposits of almost any substance – including paint, oil and dangerous chemicals – without causing any damage to the underlying surface.
As previously mentioned, Water Jetting does not require any addition of cleaning chemicals. In addition, our equipment includes a vacuum system which collects all of the water and sediment created as a by-product of the cleaning process. This means that there is very little chance of contamination, making Water Jetting the optimal choice where the environment is of prime consideration.
This is my first experience of Corecut and I would not hesitate in using them again……The General Foreman, Graham Macdonald even stated that he ‘wished that all sub-contractors would take a leaf out of Corecut’s book.
May I take this opportunity to thank you all for your efforts during the Christmas and New Year shifts. The works were not easy by any stretch of the imagination, compounded by adverse weather conditions , working away from home and site conditions that were not ideal. We completed the works as far as we could and handed back both possessions on time WITHOUT ANY ACCIDENTS OR INCIDENTS which we should be proud of. We had a couple of high level visits from the client who were content with our efforts and achievements.
Again many thanks and best wishes to you all.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for the outstanding performance and professionalism shown during the recent sub-contract works in Liverpool. Right from the beginning where we initially met to discuss the scope required until the final phase of work which was recently completed, your experience and importantly flexibility during the project was excellent. We really did see the benefit of employing Corecut to sub-contract the diamond drilling works to and we will certainly look to utilise Corecut again in future projects.
