The Basics of Pressure Washing from easy do-it-yourself jobs to heavy duty commercial and industrial projects:

A Simple Pressure Washer

Home-use pressure washer powered by a small gasoline engine

A pressure washer is a high pressure mechanical sprayer that can be used to remove loose paint, mold, grime, dust, mud, and dirt from surfaces and objects such as buildings, vehicles, concrete surfaces, etc. The volume of a pressure washer is expressed in either gallons or litres per minute, often designed into the pump and not variable. A pump’s pressure, expressed in pounds per square inch, pascals, or bar (deprecated but in common usage), is also designed into the pump but can be varied by adjusting the unloader valve. Machines that produce pressures from 750 to 30,000 psi (5 to 200 MPa) or more are available. more

 Versatility, Workplace Health

Safety and Environmental Benefits Immediately

Environmentally Friendly, Safe Surface Coating Removal and Cleaning System

This system is ideal for a diverse range of industries as it allows a single, versatile cleaning or blasting system to operate in a variety of applications from fine, easily damaged or detailed work to heavy blasting.

Farrow wet blasting has the best environmental and work place health and safety credentials available, utilising a 100% clean and safe media along with low blast pressures.

Traditional water blasters use approximately 20 litres of our precious commodity every minute. This water, along with contaminants from the surface being cleaned, is then dispersed in large volumes into our environment. The Farrow System uses as little as 0.5 litres of water per minute, dramatically reducing the clean up liability.

Dry sand blasting causes severe dust problems which in turn create significant health issues. Such systems should only be used in suitable blast enclosures. The media usage from traditional sand blasting techniques can be as high as 500kg per hour. With the remarkable Farrow System your media usage is reduced to as little as 30kg per hour, which, when mixed and absorbed with the small quantity of water, greatly reduces any environmental risk and simplifies clean up. This saves you time and money.

Consider All These Applications

The versatility of Farrow wet blasting will allow removal of surface coatings from most substrates including aluminium, timber, steel, fibreglass, rubber, brick, masonry, concrete, granite, marble, ceramics, terracotta, brass, plastic and in some circumstances has even removed ink from paper.

The portability of the system allows a unit to be manoeuvred into virtually any location further enhancing its versatility.

When it comes to cleaning, Farrow wet blasting is able to remove graffiti from any surface, remove rust and other oxidants from boats, cars, mining equipment, machinery, jetty pylons in marine parks, marine anti-foul and other substances such as old varnish from timbers, black tar, grime, mould, scale, soot and salts from any industrial or commercial applications.

Who Can Take Advantage?
