Surface Preparation and Abrasive Cleaning

We cover every industry from Steel and Pharmaceutical, right through to Energy from Waste. We offer a complete bespoke solution for each project, creating a tailored plan as either a one-off clean or a scheduled maintenance service.

Shot Blasting

Shot blasting is ideal for steel and ferrous metals ready for inspection, or deep clean. Our teams have extensive experience which allows them to deliver in a safe and timely manner regardless of the size of project.

Dry Ice Blasting

Dry Ice Blasting is an industrial cleaning process in which particles of solid carbon dioxide are propelled at high velocities to impact and clean, but not remove a surface. No other form of industrial cleaning is as versatile as dry ice blasting for decontamination solutions.

• Cleans without surface erosion
• Dramatic savings in man hours and personnel exposure to hazardous chemicals
• Eliminates potential damage to machine parts
• Eliminates secondary waste streams
• Reduces downtime with minimal disassembly
• Eliminates blasting media entrapment and drying time
• Eliminates electrical and bacterial problems
• Reduces overall cleaning time

We have successfully applied this technique in the following roles:

• Turbine rotor and blade cleaning

During our outage Intech have carried out an incredible amount of work as directed and under the watchful eye of your Lead Supervisor Andy Woodward. I just wanted to let you know that the entire team that you sent are a credit to your company. They have worked incredibly hard and maintained complete professionalism throughout what has been a challenging time. At no point did they complain or moan about anything even when the situation and the conditions were not ideal (Mark almost evaporating in the extreme whilst doing the walking floor and feed screw springs to mind!!). All of the work was completed to a very high standard which is evident in the pictures. I would be grateful if you could pass on our thanks to all the team and we look forward to working with you again in the future.

Being a recently commissioned waste to energy plant we relied on your technical advice and experiences to guide as to the best solutions to some of our industrial cleaning requirements. Intech offered an excellent service and I was impressed with the professionalism of the team on site throughout the duration of the work. Our operations team conducted regular working party monitoring of all contractors on site during the outage, and feedback on the Intech team was positive and it was reported they worked safely and complied with safe systems of work and our site safety rules at all times. Please pass on my thanks to the team and I look forward to working together on future projects.
