We are always bang on target with our shotblasting!

We are experts at shotblasting to remove rust, dirt and grime from steel to make it really clean.

Shotblasting – sometimes also known as abrasive blasting or sandblasting – cleans surfaces by using high pressure compressed air jets to fire an abrasive substance against it to remove contaminants, paint or other coatings from the surface.

Qualitech have two types of shotblast equipment in our mobile trailers.

  1. For traditional high pressure blasting either wet or dry for surface preparation.
  2. Low pressure soda or eco-blasting for delicate items like fin fans, wood or stone.

Low pressure eco-blasting uses a biodegradable media which is non-abrasive to the area being blasted. The low-pressure system is ideal for fin fans, masonry or other delicate items which abrasive blasting would damage.

The Ferrous protection team are highly skilled and have over 30 years’ experience in surface preparation, painting, and coating.

The Ferrous Protection organisation being part of Qualitech has massive benefits to our clients meaning we can offer the complete package of cleaning, surface preparation and painting / coating.

Qualitech and Ferrous Protection offer the same services for abrasive blasting to specified standards for inspection and testing or painting and coating.

Qualitech also has the technology to remotely clean surfaces without the need for working at height.


Lining Removal

Qualitech can provide non-abrasive tank lining removal using electromagnetic thermal induction technology. This means there is no mess and waste is reduced.

The technology used in this type of lining removal is extremely effective and quickly removes the lining from tanks.

The lining is removed by the inducted heat which breaks down the adhesive and releases the lining from the surface.
