Averda is a well-known brand in the waste management sector. However, the company extends its services beyond waste collection, recycling and landfill management. We operate in numerous sectors in South Africa, including the industrial cleaning industry. One of the services we offer is high-pressure water jetting.
High-pressure water jetting is a method of cleaning and maintenance that utilises high-speed streams of water to blast away dirt, grime and stains. Pressurized water is forced through a small hole in the jet nozzle, resulting in a fast-moving stream of water that is capable of blasting and cutting.
Water jetting can also be used as a precision method of cutting. Fine grains of sand are fed into the water jet that then acts as an abrasive blade to cut precisely through solid materials. Averda can offer high-pressure water jetting services in the range between 100 bars and 3000 bars, depending on the required application.
Averda offers a range of water jetting services
Our water jetting services include the following:
- Cleaning of concrete structures
- Internal cleaning of tanks
- Removal of lime and scale deposits
- Removal of rust
- Removal of paint and graffiti
- Surface preparation as an alternative method to sandblasting
When preparing metal surfaces, Averda uses a process of Super Ultra High Pressure (SUHP). This SUHP water jetting produces a clean metal finish that is free from dust, abrasions and metal peaks that can cause corrosion and rust. It is a method of surface preparation that ensures paint sticks to the metal without flaking and cracking at a later stage.
Water jetting is safe for the environment and human health
Water jetting offers many advantages over other industrial cleaning and sandblasting methods. It is a versatile service that can be used for a number of applications, as outlined above. Water jetting is also safe and inexpensive, unlike many other forms of chemical cleaning, sandblasting and cutting.
High-pressure water jetting has no environmental impact or health side effects. This method of cleaning and blasting does not damage surfaces and produces no harmful byproducts, which is why it should be the method of choice for industrial organisations and corporations.
