USES OF VERY HIGH PRESSURE WATER-JET CLEANING IN MARINE MAINTENANCE

High pressure water-jet cleaning, using pressure up to 10,000 psi, has proven to be a very versatile, efficient, and less costly method of performing many types of marine maintenance. This paper covers three aspects of this cleaning method. A review is made of the basic equipment required and the commercial configurations that are available. Frequently used applications are briefly discussed along with their efficiency and potential cost savings. Finally, the relevant antipollution standards and their effect on cleaning techniques are evaluated.
