Surface Preparation

At Orontide we are proud to offer a wide range of cost effective and environmentally safe surface preparation techniques both on-site and at our Henderson based blasting and coatings facility. Our services include, but are not limited to, traditional abrasive blasting both wet and dry. We select the correct blasting media from a range of abrasives including garnet, aluminium oxide, glass bead and soda. We also offer a fleet of Zone 2 rated offshore compliant ultra-high pressure water jetting pumps, coupled with our Zone 2 rated vacuum recovery systems to ensure the safe removal of coatings, linings and contaminates in environmentally sensitive areas both on and offshore.

Our ultra-high pressure water jetting capabilities set new benchmarks in surface preparation and offer safe and sustainable preparation and removal of coating materials, paints and contaminants, decontamination of equipment, and disposal of residuals.

Our capabilities:

  • Safe and cost-effective surface preparation, including dry and wet abrasive blast cleaning
  • Safe and cost-effective track blasting techniques, high pressure and ultra-high pressure water jetting
  • Stainless steel passivation (glass bead)
  • Soda blasting
