Dry Abrasive Blasting
This time tested method is the work horse of our industry. Cor-Ray utilizes 8 ton bulk blast pots and Blastrac machines to minimize down time while maximizing production. All our units have recently been upgraded to meet current safety, reliability and production expectations.
Let our experienced and knowledgeable staff select the correct blast media, containment and work plan to ensure a safe and efficient schedule to meet your critical path requirements.
Wet Abrasive Blasting
An environmentally friendly option for abrasive blasting, this system uses a water and sand slurry mix under pressure to prepare the surface. By removing dust that is created by dry abrasive blasting, this method eliminates the need for containment while reducing clean-up costs.
Ideal for buried pipelines, spheres, vessels tanks and concrete, if it can be done with dry blasting we have the equipment to provide you the same profile and cleanliness using water technology.
Using dry ice pellets as a blast media certainly has a place in our industry. Ideal for the food processing industry, sensitive equipment or removing graffiti from finished concrete or steel structures, dry ice leaves virtually no residuals while cleaning your substrate.
Vacuum Blasting/Power Tooling
Vacuum blasting and power tooling is a viable option for removing hazardous materials from your facility. Like the name suggests, the hazardous materials are blasted or mechanically removed from the substrate and contained in a canister for disposal. This method is best suited for small, sensitive environments.
High Pressure Water Blasting
Cor-Ray Painting Co. has extensive experience using water blasting as a safe, effective way of removing a wide range of chemicals and contaminants from concrete and steel surfaces. Pressure washing allows us to prep a surface to be void of all visible rust, dirt, previous coatings, loose scale, and foreign matter that would otherwise be detrimental to surface preparation. We use both hot, cold and steam water washing to meet the demands and needs of our customers.
Lead based paint coatings provided superior corrosion resistance until 1978 when the federal government determined that lead was a health risk and legislatively dictated that lead be removed from all paints. Obviously that leaves countless steel structures, tanks, pipelines, power generating stations, refineries, just to name a few, with hazardous, lead based paints that require remediation.
Over the last 25 years, Cor-Ray Painting Co. has safely and effectively abated lead and other hazardous materials from a multitude of structures and environments. We strive to diligently abate hazardous materials from job sites in a safe and professional manner.
In addition to our standard safety training, all our lead abatement employees receive extensive training in lead awareness and hazardous waste disposal. Each job is supervised by a certified “Lead Competent Person”, SSPC C5, Supervisor/Competent Person Training for De-leading Industrial Structures
