Maintenance professionals praise the exceptional power and versatility of high pressure washers in managing a host of cleaning applications in commercial and industrial settings. While light cleaning jobs demand the use of medium-powered pressure cleaners, demanding jobs like industrial degreasing and wet sandblasting require the use of heavy-duty machines. If you are in the market for power cleaners that will help with paint removal, consider powerful pressure cleaning machines with proven wet sandblasting capabilities.
Wet sandblaster pressure cleaners from leading suppliers come with tri-mode functions and varying flow rates and pressure levels so that you can select the right power for your specific wet sandblasting applications. In addition to superb construction, these mobile pressure washers are also notable for pressure levels that can go up to 6500 psi and high flow rates of up to 8 GPM. These capabilities enable the pressure washing equipment to remove paint, corrosion, or rust from small areas of metal.
The major components of a high pressure washer with wet sandblasting include the sand point, a pickup tube, and the venturi head. The sand point, draw media or sand from a container. Sand grit of varying sizes, silica, or small plastic pellets are also used for wet sandblasting applications. The sand travels through the pickup tube into the venturi head where it mixes with water under high pressure. This sand and water mixture is ejected at high pressure levels through a nozzle to remove deposits like paint from metallic surfaces.
The Super Max™ 12500 GE WS available from Daimer® is a high pressure washer with wet sandblasting capabilities. It is designed for industrial and commercial wet sandblasting operations such as spot removal of paint. In addition to high flow rates of up to 5 GPM, the machine features high pressure levels of 3000 psi. It also comes with trailer-mountable capabilities and is available in double-gun configurations.
The tri-mode functions enable this pressure washing equipment to generate cold water, hot water or steam. Although it is capable of generating steam at temperatures as high as 330ºF, remember that it must be set to the cold water mode for wet sandblasting operations. The spray pattern of 1.5-inch width makes it perfect for spot removal of paint and rust from metal surfaces. A proportioning valve, allows the machine to control the flow of water and sand through the venturi head.
Wet sandblasting with high pressure washers is safer than sandblasting with compressed air. As a result, operators do not have to wear protective clothing or other safety gear while operating these mobile pressure washers. However, note that this kind of wet sandblasting is only possible for tackling small areas due to the narrow spray pattern. Still, to ensure productivity, these power cleaners are available with two gun configurations so that two users can use the machine simultaneously.
