HB1Water blasting or hydroblasting is cleaning with pressurized water. Water blasting capabilities are typically measured in psi (pounds per square inch) and gpm (gallons per minute). High-pressure hydroblasting operates at pressures above 10,000 psi or 10k. Ultra-high-pressure hydroblasting operates at water pressures 25,000 psi up to 40,000 psi or 25k – 40k.

Bodine’s hydroblasting has a capability of up to 40,000 psi, volumes up to 180 gpm, and can use up to 5 water blasting guns from one pump using a high pressure manifold. Versatile 10k, 20k, and 40k water blasting reduces downtime for cleaning and removal of paint, oils, greases, process residue, and scale.

Water blasting with 2-D (dimensional) and 3-D automated spin heads are also available, eliminating confined space entry for tank cleaning and for the cleaning of larger diameter piping. Bodine Services offers multi-capability crews which can handle several levels of cleaning with one visit to your facility.

At Bodine, all hydroblasting employees are required to wear protective “Turtle Skin” suits and Bodine a patented backout prevention device to assure their safety while blasting. Bodine employees are also 10 hour OSHA (many with 40 hour HAZWOPER), First Aid and CPR certified. Learn more about Bodine’s water blasting safety measures by visiting our safety page.
