Two water tanks located in Dayton, Ohio required blast cleaning. The tanks had an internal surface area of 28,000 ft2 – with external surfaced of 45,000 ft2.
The tanks are supported by a large central riser column and 12 legs around the circumference. Access is via swing stages. Catwalk platforms are suspended between the columns.
Achieve surface cleanliness and roughness standards.
Ability to complete project deadlines on-time.
Generate considerable savings.
We performed two tests on equally sized towers. The first test used coal slag and the client’s original equipment. The second test used GMA ToughBlast and two Mega Blasters with 1600cfm compressors.
By switching to GMA ToughBlast, our client used 44% less abrasive. Additionally, they saved almost 400 labor hours. Downtime during blasting was significantly reduced. This is due to minimal reloading of the Mega Blasters. Altogether, there was a total savings of 22%. Moreover, he was able to move the equipment on a week ahead of schedule to start the next project.
“I can work shorter days as I don’t have to stop to let the dust clear to see what we are doing! There is basically nothing to clean up!”
