The interaction of blasting media, water, and pressure is decisive. This technique is so universal because these three factors can be individually and independently metered in torbo wet sandblasting. Torbo offers an effective and low-cost alternative to a wide variety of cleaning and refurbishment procedures.
Depending on the blasting media, the pressure, and the amount of water added, the jet can strike the surface so gently that you can use it to clean an uncooked egg or it can be so powerful that a thick coat of paint will spontaneously be removed.
The torbo technology:
In the working process, each grain of the blasting media is already covered with water in the tank. This is how dust protection is activated most effectively. The surface tension of the water forms each blasting grain into a perfect sphere, which optimally fits into the air stream and ensures optimized flow velocity.
The water jacket acts as a lubricant that minimizes wear on hoses and nozzles of the system. On the surface, the grain immediately stops completely, while the water envelope continues to move, preventing the blasting grain from bouncing off.
Then the water envelope opens and pulls the grain down with it. The result is a cleaned surface.
