When should you specify UHP waterjetting on bridges?

Selected Answers

From Lydia Frenzel of Advisory Council on December 5, 2017:
A comprehensive study by the FHWA was completed in 2001 by Corrpro: “COST EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVE METHODS FOR STEEL BRIDGE PAINT SYSTEM MAINTENANCE,” FHWA: CONTRACT NO. DTF H61-97-C-00026 September 2001. Corrpro talks were given on the results. The complete report is found at "downloads" Item No. 12. Wayne Senick of TermaRust uses 7000 psi hot water at 6 gallons per minute and his HR CSA system on bridges globally. Moisture cured polyurethanes work very well on bridges with waterjetting. The trick is to think about what you are doing and plan ahead.
