WET BLAST FOR BETTER STEEL PREPARATION

This article explains the advantages of the low-pressure wet blasting process developed by Kue Engineering Limited, of Bradford, and known as System 918. The main advantage over dry blasting is that wet blasting will give a surface freed from all water-soluble residues which, if not removed in the surface-preparation stage, would later form ferrous salts attacking the metal and spoiling the paint coatings. Kue Engineering offer a free demonstration of System 918 to any shipowner or shipyard.
