This induction method is used for removing coatings in a clean, safe and simple manner. It works by the principle of generating sufficient heat in the steel substrate to break the bond between the steel and coating layer.
The coating is then entirely removed without disintegrating and the process is completely free of contaminating agents like blast media. This provides a seamless process for disposal and recycling of waste and is more cost effective.
When technicians move our induction head over a steel surface, it creates sufficient heat (typically 150 to 200 degrees) to quickly unbond most coatings from tanks, tankers, pipelines, ships and offshore platforms, allowing coatings (up to 1-inch thick) to be removed in sheets.
It can be used in removing asbestos, lead and toxic coatings without compromising the health of engineers or the environment. No dust and up to 75 % reduction in energy consumption results in minimum waste management and excellent safety record.
Induction coating removal is an eco-friendly solution creating less waste, fumes and noise compared to conventional solutions. Since it is a silent process, operators can work in public areas without a hitch.
• It is safer as the inductors / heads remain cold during the process and localized heat results in significantly reduced fumes and toxic dust.
• It is portable and easy to move around worksites.
• Inductors / Heads can be customs built to ensure an ideal fit.
• It is a faster and quieter method of coating removal than conventional methods and it can be operated day or night without noise pollution.
