20,000 PSI RUNWAY RUBBER REMOVAL   

Airport Marking Removal

Marking Removal  Challenges arise on runways and taxiways when paint flakes and the chips become FOD. When removing this type of paint, the varying thickness present unique challenges. Where the paint is very hard or very thick, and the pavement is older or brittle, waterblasting affords a unique level of adaptability to eliminate markings and preserve the pavement. By managing applied energy and narrower blast patterns, waterjets can target resilient materials. Performance Hydroblasting, INC. supports each project with a ready variety of blast heads. Each head is designed for the specific challenges encountered on airfield pavements.

...20,000 PSI waterblasting for rubber removal on airport runways is a relatively low “pressure” that suggests to the inexperienced mind that there is less energy being applied. The truth of this assumption, however, is that 20,000 PSI will quickly inflict more pavement damage than 40,000 PSI every time the volume exceeds the damaging impact threshold of that pavement. So the following statement, while relative to all the elements of energy, is true. Waterblasting at or below 20,000 PSI will damage your runway faster than 40,000 PSI.

 

Most references to pressure are actually references to velocity, since we know that pressure is only a concept and not reality. Velocity is only a component of applied energy. Of course, when it comes to waterblasting or hydroblasting on runways, effective energy is even more important then applied energy. The trick is to effectively remove the rubber or paint, while protecting the runway pavement and pavement joints from any damage threshold.  

 

Performance Hydroblasting, Inc. has developed both the art and the tooling for precise delivery of the applied energy needed to meet these demands. Performance Hydroblasting, Inc. is on the cutting edge of this technology, and as such, is one of the world’s foremost companies in runway rubber removal and airfield paint removal.
