Clean It would like to introduce our cold cutting system that cuts steel up to 50 mm thick. This dependable and versatile abrasive water blasting cutting system is ideal for precise straight or circular cuts in a variety of materials.
The cold cutting system utilizes a 4”flexi track that has magnet mounts that securely attaches to the surface to be cut. The composite rail provides linear and lateral flexibility for precise cutting.
The cutting incorporates garnet injection to 40,000psi of ultra-high pressure water at the cutting tip to cut through steel up to 32mm thick.
Recently, Clean It was engaged to cut a 3.0m x 3.5m high opening into the side of a 40,000,000 Litre fuel storage tank with a wall thickness of 32 mm. As the opening was required to access a tank that contained residual fuel oil, a cold cutting method was required.
Clean It’s cold cutting capacity was the ideal solution delivering the required precise cut at a rate of 25mm per minute. The following video captures cutting the final 40mm of the opening. Pilot holes using a magnet mounted core drill were used at the beginning of the cut and then at each change of angle.
If you would like to explore our cold cutting capacity further please contact our Operations Manager Steve Farnden on 0428 657 900 or the Clean It Office on 1300880 822.
