Drydocks around the world and above ground storage tanks are the key beneficents of our patented UHP Robotic systems.
Need a solution for your surface preparation challenges? Then look no further than the ENVIROBOT® or the SCORPION. Working individually or paired on your project . . . these robots are the answer for your toughest jobs.
Waterjet Robotics is currently under reorganization. Please check back for future updates. Thank you.
IMPROVED for 2019 - The SCORPION - All the features of the ENVIROBOT® but designed to work in smaller, tighter spaces.
Like the ENVIROBOT®, the SCORPION attaches to large metal surfaces using our patented magnetic air-gap technology and, combined with our vacuum effluent containment system that removes and contains 99% of the waste (water, paint and corrosion), both the SCORPION and the ENVIROBOT®, using a straightforward water treatment, allows us to deliver a surface that is ready for coating immediately after blasting.
Both the SCORPION and ENVIROBOT® clean using the energy of water striking the hull's surface, operating at pressures as high as 55,000 psi. As no abrasives are used in the process, dust pollution does not occur and the need to dispose of spent abrasives is eliminated.
Although the ENVIROBOT® is equally efficient across a wide range of larger vessels - cruise ships, oil tankers, Ro/Ros, and container ships as well as an array of above ground storage tanks and myriad industrial applications - the SCORPION is at home in both small and large environments and popular with smaller yards and mid-to-small-size ships.
The ENVIROBOT® or SCORPION, using ultra high pressure water, strips coatings and corrosion from ship's exterior surfaces (hull sides, flat bottom, and decks.
