Oily film has steamy ending
A leading manufacturer of precast concrete walls
and floors has found that getting steamed up is
not always such a bad thing.

Hanson Precast used a 240V hot water blaster
from Kennards Hire Windsor to remove an oily film
from the face of 50 brick-faced, precast panels,
destined for use in a new CBD skyscraper.

Quality Assurance manager James richardson
said the architectural precast panels, which have
a natural masonry appearance, came out of the
mould with the oily film.

“These particular panels will be painted, so it
was necessary to remove the film to avoid a
blotchy finish,” he said. “Sanding proved very time
consuming, so we tried the hot water blaster and
it was great.”

The hot water blaster, which is just as effective for
degreasing workshop floors, cleaning machinery
and removing chewing gum and food deposits in
school playgrounds, uses diesel to heat water to
140C, before it is blasted out at 1500psi pressure.

Kennards Hire has a wide range of water blasters
and attachments to meet all needs, and new
models are constantly being trialled to ensure
customers have access to the most effective
cleaning equipment.

Hot water, 4000psi water blasters have been
introduced in the NSW Illawarra for heavy industry
needs, while new trailer-mounted, 4000psi cold
water blasters are now available in Queensland.
