Cleaning and maintenance of structures which are continually subjected to corrosive elements and debris build-up is a key element in managing the overall performance of a wastewater system. Lift stations, manholes, wet wells, vaults, tanks and treatment plant headworks all benefit from periodic cleaning to ensure the system functions at full efficiency. Hydro blasting and sand blasting services are used to tackle even the most resistant build-up and are used as a preparatory step should the structure require rehabilitation.
High pressure pumps and nozzles capable of producing between 4,000 and 10,000 psi of water force strip and clear residue from interior and exterior surfaces. Steam can be incorporated into the cleaning process when necessary to achieve the desired results.
High-impact sand blasting is another method used to remove surface contaminants and is particularly useful when the water/sludge by-product of hydro blasting is restricted. When rehabilitation of the structure is necessary, the deteriorating surfaces will be sandblasted to remove loose debris creating a stable surface ready to accept the next step in the restoration process.
Combination machines, industrial vacuum dry loaders along with other essential equipment assist with debris disposal during the cleaning process.
Many cleaning projects contain inherent dangers in their execution. MSI retains an experienced staff, safety trained and confined space entry certified, to maintain the highest level of safety.
