Waterblasting Technologies Inc.
Waterblasting is quickly becoming a preferred method for removing rubber marks from airport runways and road surface paint removal. Waterblasting Technologies Inc. has an extensive portfolio of products and services for roadwa, airfield marking and surface maintenance.
With certain water blasting applications, a water trailer containing up to 2500 gallons of water, feeds the water system with a pump needed to supply the process. Waterblasting Technologies Inc., contacted Wastecorp seeking recommendations for pumps to feed its rubber marking removal process on airport runways. The pump specification called for the pumping unit to be powered by the service truck’s existing hydraulic fluid lines
With service trucks working
between six and eight hours per
day, any pump solution must
be able to withstand the rigorous
schedule on a daily basis.
Wastecorp recommended the
Mud Sucker 2FA-HP hydraulic
powered pump Series.
The 2FA easily connects to the
hydraulic line of the truck with
a Parker Torqmotor operating
at 60 RPM (1000-1300 psi).
With Buna-N flapper valves
and a 7” diaphragm, the Mud
Sucker 2FA-HP has the capabilities
of operating up to 10
hours per day. The best part is,
the pump requires only basic
maintenance with low cost and
easy-to-install repair parts. This
keeps Waste Blasting Technologies’
service crews more
productive on the job.
The 2FA-H is also available as
a wastewater transfer pump for
waterblasting systems. In this
type of application, the pump
transfers wastewater and paint
chips collected and transfers
the wastewater into a containment
system or tote tank for
Water blasting processes are known for their effective cleaning capabilities without damaging the surface of the road or runway.
