Pressure washing for ships

Pressure washing means the cleaning of various surfaces with clean water. Different types of particles, such as sand, can be added to pressurised water to enhance cleaning efficiency or to profile the cleaned surface. The pressure washing equipment covers a pressure range from 500 to 3,000 bar.

High-efficiency vacuum cleaning for ships

High-efficiency vacuum cleaning offers suction and blowing for the handling of both dry and wet materials. The material is sucked into the tank of the unit, in which the material can be transported to the destination and discharged either by tipping of blowing.

The equipment can be used for a wide variety of applications, also at sites which are difficult to reach: in industries, building sites, ports etc. Low sound level also enables use in urban areas. The equipment can handle almost all materials that fit into the pipe of the unit (152 mm).

Despite its high efficiency, the unit is completely safe and fulfils stringent safety requirements.
