Robotic Water-Blasting System Cleans Vessels

ENVIROBOT 2010, from Chariot Robotics LLC

The ENVIROBOT 2010, from Chariot Robotics LLC, removes coatings from vessels and above-ground storage tanks using a patented, magnetically attached robot applying Ultra High Pressure water to the surface and vacuuming away the effluent. The vacuum effluent containment system removes and contains 100% of the waste products, the company says.

This radio-controlled system increases productivity, improves worker safety, and allows other work items to proceed simultaneously, the company says. The surface preparation robot eliminates the airborne particulates generated by grit blasting.

ENVIROBOT works across a range of vessels. Operated by an individual, the robot uses patented magnetic air gap technology that allows it to sweep or full blast, back and forth across the hull’s flat bottom, vertical sides, bow and stern shapes equally, the company says

The “all-in-one” design includes a UHP pump at 12 GPM at 40,000 psi.

The system cleans using the energy of water striking the hull’s surface, operating at pressures as high 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, according to the company.

Systems are available for lease, rental or sale worldwide. Learn more at www.chariotrobotics.com.
