Offshore Surface Preparation/Protection Using High Pressure (HP) and Ultra High Pressure (UHP) Hydro-blasting - Ultrabar 10E UHP Offshore Unit.
The Offshore Oil & Gas & Marine industries adopted UHP water jetting as the preferred method of coatings removal / surface preparation some time ago & until now have tolerated the use of sometimes oversized / overpowered units that take up too much deck space and consume too much water on the basis that the benefits outweighed the drawbacks.
Hughes Pumps identified the need for a compact, limited power UHP unit designed specifically for this industry & the Ultrabar 10E UHP Offshore Unit was born. Developing 8.5 lpm at 2100 bar (1.9 igpm at 30,500 psi), mounted in a compact EN12079 offshore crashframe & fitted with a 37 kW (50 hp) Zone 1 or 2 electric motor suitable for use from a 63 amp socket. This unit has been extensively trialled in the North Sea, UK on various gas platforms & on a variety of riding crew projects over the last year & has been extremely well received.
Ideal for spot blasting & general surface preparation, this unit is probably the most compact & user friendly UHP unit available on the market. Our range of pumps are capable of discharge pressures upto 2750 bar (40,000 psi) & flow rates to 773 lpm (170 igpm / 205 usgpm) with ratings from 30 kW (40 hp) to 375 kW (500 hp).
