Traditional abrasive blast preparation is becoming a thing of the past. State and Federal environmental regulations have created the push away from abrasive blasting. With the increasing cost of constructing environmentally sound containment structures, and disposal cost of abrasive blast media, alternative techniques are growing in popularity. Even the United States Navy has joined in this campaign with the adoption of written and visual standards for high pressure water jet surface preparation. The acceptance of water jetting (10,000 – 40,000 psi) as a preferred surface preparation technique is not solely a financial move. Hennigan Engineering has the expertise and the specialized equipment to remove product build-up, dirt, oil, corrosion scale, and failed coatings down to the substrate, as well as the ability to reapply new coatings or recommended coating system application for steel and concrete surfaces.
