Hydro blasting (water blasting) is a productive and cost effective cleaning and surface preparation technique that uses high pressure water to remove surface residue, debris, oxidation, and scale deposits. Hydro blasting equipment pressurizes and accelerates water through a blast hose. As the high pressure water exits the blast nozzle at high velocity, it impacts the target and cleans residue and debris from the surface.
The terms hydro blasting, water blasting, water jetting, and hydro jetting are essentially the same and are commonly confused with water washing and pressure washing. The following table clarifies the differences between the methods.
