High pressure water jet blasting with Rösler: environmentally friendly and gentle on materials

With Rösler high pressure water jet machines, pure water is blasted at up to 5000 bar through a rotating multi-nozzle on the work piece to be finished. Through the rotation of this nozzle, a “milling effect” is created, which gently removes even hard coatings.

Water blasting has many advantages:

  • no deformation, because there is no peening effect
  • very low material removal of the base material, because no abrasive is used
  • very environmentally-friendly
  • the process water can be reused in a closed circuit
  • subsequent cleaning of the work pieces of dust or abrasive residue is eliminated
  • no use of abrasive materials
  • temporary corrosion protection on the work pieces by addition of compounds is possible
