Especially by using a high-pressure water jet, it is possible to profile the surface quickly, efficiently and in an environmentally friendly manner. However, the water jet is directed at the surface to be treated with a pressure of up to 3,000 bar. As a result, it is removed and roughened evenly. In conclusion, compared to the sandblasting process, the high-pressure water jet is significantly more precise. In addition, there is no risk of damaging the material or causing unwanted changes to the surface.
Is roughening with water much more environmentally friendly than conventional methods?
To sum up, the usage of water jets for surface roughening isn’t only very suitable for the job because it is fast and efficient, but also comes with great advantages for the protection of the environment. Because of the high pressures, the water can do without additives like sand or artificial granulates which could then potentially pollute the direct environment.
As a result, the high-pressure water jet method protects the environment much more than other conventional processing methods such as sandblasting. At least, when roughening with water jets, the environment is protected much more than with other, classic processing methods.
KAMAT provides everything from a single source – from the high-pressure pump to the water tool: KAMAT is a direct supplier for entire pump units even with surface cleaners designed for that purpose that can also be mounted on vehicles.
