Dust Free Robotic Blasting Solutions

We offer innovative dust-free robotic surface preparation services to industrial markets throughout the United States, which can be applied to tank roofs, tank floors, interior/exterior tank walls, ships and vessels, and Fiberglass Removal (High Frequency Induction Stripping).

Our method of robotic blasting for surface preparation is environmentally friendly, technologically advanced, ergonomically designed for better operator interaction and safer than traditional abrasive blasting methods. We utilize both horizontal and vertical machines for abrasive blasting that are designed to reduce the noise and self-contain the dust and debris normally associated with abrasive blasting operations. With our environmental blasting systems dust and debris is safely collected in the units' dust collection system, reducing and sometimes eliminating the release of airborne particles into the atmosphere. This process of abrasive blasting is particularly effective when managing debris from lead containing coatings, eliminating many potential health and environmental risks.

Where applicable, we also utilize advanced High Frequency Induction Stripping units that require no abrasive media for the preparation of surfaces.

All of our robotic blasting units create a safer working environment for operators and directly result in time/cost savings as multiple service lines can be scheduled simultaneously in the same work area. This significant technological competitive advantage in the surface preparation and coatings market segment allows us to more effectively provide our customers meaningful integrated service solutions.

Horizontal Machines:

Our most widely-used machine, the horizontal unit is ideal for use on horizontal concrete and steel surfaces of storage tanks. This robotic blasting unit can be disassembled and passed through a 24" tank opening to reach areas normally inaccessible to other machines. It is electric-powered, self-propelled and offers variable travel speed control to provide a consistent blast pattern.

Production Rates:

Near White: SSPC - SP10:
2,000 - 3,000 Sq. Ft. per day
Commercial Blast: SSPC – SP6:
3,000 - 3,500 Sq. Ft. per day

Vertical Machines:

Our vertical units are designed to clean and profile large vertical steel surfaces for applications such as storage tanks and ship hulls. These electric-powered machines are suspended by a crane or winch and operate vertically by remote control from a mobile control station.

Production Rates:

Near White: SSPC - SP10:
1,500 - 2,000 Sq. Ft. per day
Commercial Blast: SSPC – SP6:
2,000 - 2,500 Sq. Ft. per day

High Frequency Induction Stripping Unit:

Our High Frequency Induction Stripping Unit is the most advanced industrial surface preparation tool in the global market. Its use of electromagnetic impulses completely replaces the need for using traditional blasting media. Utilizing this innovative technique, we are able to reach a staggering 99 percent of the surface, even on vertical surfaces. This process is ideal for thick glass fiber reinforced coatings.

Production Rates:

Near White: SSPC - SP10:
3,000 - 5,000 Sq. Ft. per day
