High Pressure Water Jetting Cleaning & Descaling
What is High Pressure Water Jetting?
High Pressure Water Jetting (HPWJ) is carried out via a water jet which blasts highly compressed and concentrated pressurised water out of a small nozzle. The resultant water force will cut through virtually anything. Also known in (and out) of the industry as hydro-blasting or water-cutting, HPWJ is employed in a range of applications and environments because it is such an effective, powerful and precise tool.
What pressure does HPWJ generate?
Lanes’ HPWJs will reach pressures of up to 15,000 psi — enough to cut through solid concrete. Importantly, our team of trained engineers carry out all jetting work with meticulous precision, whilst always focusing on strict health and safety protocols.
What is HPWJ used for?
High pressure jetting is ideal for shifting debris and substances found within, around or attached to a drain, sewer or process pipe. Capable of breaking up everything from rust and scale to resins, chemical residues, paint, concrete and rubble, the high pressure jet allows us to remove build up and blockages quickly and efficiently to restore optimum flow back to the pipe.
Here are just some of HPWJ services we provide:
- De-scaling pipes
- Tank cleaning
- Surface preparation
- De-scaling drains and sewers
- Floor preparation
How does it work?
By forcing water through a small outlet, the jet creates the high volumes of pressure needed for cleaning and cutting through the sort of debris found within the drainage and sewer system. The result should then be a pipe system that flows as it did when it was newly installed. In addition, the technology is an environmentally friendly and simple solution to many sewer and drainage problems, as well as descaling process engineering pipework.
What are the benefits?
A cost-effective and fast solution to clearing and cleaning drains, high pressure water jetting is particularly suited to working within sensitive time-frames and budgets. Lanes’ engineers will operate around your needs and your schedule, anywhere in the UK, to deliver an exemplary HPWJ service.
What about the waste?
After pipe de-scaling and cleaning has been completed, the Lanes’ team will organise the collection and disposal of any waste remaining on-site. This will adhere to all appropriate legislation, and include relevant paperwork.
