Ultra high pressure water blasting crawler robot or hydro blasting robot is an industrial cleaning method. Which uses the force of pressurized water, generated by the water jetting power source, to achieve the required cleaning effect on a selected surface. Metal surface which can be cleaned by the water blaster can include metal, glass wall. Traditional handed water jetting gun methods are efficient but they do present an array of problems and concerns within industrial environments. Let’s explore these issues in the following text.
High pressure cleaning crawler robot : High pressure water blasting crawler robot are routinely used for ship hull maintenance. This method functions as a safe and effective method for hull cleaning method. After adopting blasting robot which can liberate manual labor and save the labor cost and improving the working efficiency.
What is water blasting crawler robot used for ?
Magnet crawler water blasting robot can be used to clean industrial surfaces for various industries. The main subjective industries listed below utilize hydro blasting most often for the following purposes:
Maritime industries: Due to lots of maintenance and surface preparation necessary for metal surface. Water blasting is often used for the removal of any antifouling, old paint, protective coating, rust or marine growth found upon a ship’s hull, deck, storage tanks, oil platforms, cargo hold and more.
Metal works: water blasting robot can be used for eliminating stick weld slag, metal burring, mill scale as well as rust from aged material.
Preparation works for some giant surfaces : Hydro blasting robot can be used for cleaning away paint. Rust, grease, antifouling, salts, grime and more as effective step for maintenance or surface preparation.
Alcohol processing industries: water blasting robot can be used for the cleaning the internal wall of the tank, vessels even the bottom of the tank as well.
Oil and gas industry: The crude oil tank has many layers by the different gravity, after long time. There are different layers of crude oil stick to the internal wall of the oil tank. In that case crawler robot can be the best option for internal wall cleaning. Besides, external paint removal for the oil tank always need crawler robot to blasting.
Power stations: Hydroblasting robot can be used for decontamination of fuel capsules, pipes, and equipment and for removal of debris.
General cleaning works: maintaining public spaces, buildings and other steel structures.
Water blasting crawler robot is a fast and efficient alternative to sand blasting
This cleaning method uses high pressure up to 3200 bar, with an arm reaching up to 50 meters from the dock floor. You workers will benefit from the robots’ flexibility and dust free work reducing your ship’s hull treatment time significantly.
Robotic crawler hydroblasting machine is a surface preparation device with highly mobile, self-affixing surface preparation equipment. The technology emphasizes on the friendly equipment that utilized the UHP water for cleaning surface relies entirely on the energy of pure water striking of pressurized water directed through a 16 nozzle to impact of surface with no any media used. Hydro blasting is performed with maximum pressure above 40000 psi.
With our latest technology for water jetting system, it includes robots, crawlers and handheld units. We can blast over 262 m2 per hour. Since the method is dust free and it does not interfere with other dock work, which can then be performed at the same time.
Apart from removing old coatings and rust. Ultra-high pressure water jetting also removes deeply embedded crystallized salt. Resulting in a notable reduction in the chloride levels on the surface. Which has been proved to be the single most important phase in the surface treatment operation by extensive testing.
Hydro blasting crawler robot offers several features including hydroblasting cleaning panel and automatic lane change. Making it a preferred option for surface preparation. It has been used for surface preparation of more than 600 ships, covering an area of over 2 million m2.

Water blasting magnet robot for ship
Crawler blasting robot for surface cleaning allows you to perform cleaning, scraping, or inspection processes on large metal surfaces. Such as giant ships, tanks, bridges, or wind turbines by using permanent magnets. Strong magnetic adhesion enables these robots to climb vertical surfaces, providing a flexible and effective solution for various applications. With our W-robot, you can perform HP, UHP, or water blasting applications in an environmentally friendly and efficient manner.
In maritime, energy, and other industries, traditional surface treatments like abrasive blasting. Water jetting, and washing only rely on manual labor. However, this labor-intensive approach comes with drawbacks such as reduced efficiency, occupational hazards, health concerns, environmental impacts. To mitigate these challenges, you can consider Watex robot solutions.
Watex offers significant advantages with crawler robot blasting. It outperforming human labor by up to 10 times in terms of speed and stability. By utilizing high pressure cleaning robot, you can enhance efficiency and eliminate these disadvantages. Water blasting crawler robot helps minimize occupational risks and reduce manpower requirements. It ultimately leading to improved workplace safety, better health, reduced environmental impact, and optimized costs.
Today, there are many methods are used for ship hull cleaning and maintenance. However, many years ago ship hull maintenance was completed by hand through the utilization of scrappers. You can imagine that the job was a troublesome task that required a lot of manpower and time. Ship hull cleaning by hand through many tools is still used today in certain situations. However, it is often eliminated when more practical, safer, and time-effective methods are available. Some of these methods include hydroblasting equipment such as high pressure hydro blasting crawler robot and underwater brush karts systems magnetic robot crawlers.
