Hydro-Blasting Safety Mobile App

While Hydro blasters are fairly simple to operate, they can be dangerous if not properly used. No one should operate hydro-blasting equipment without using the Hydro-Blasting Safety mobile app. A pump is used to increase the water pressure to 10,000 psi, with larger units capable of 45,000 psi or more. This pressurized water is pumped through a flexible steel braided hose and discharged through a pipe called a lance which has an orifice at the end. The water jets, which exit the orifice, act much like a band saw, and this cutting action is the main hazard. This high-pressure water can cut through boots, gloves, aprons and any other protective clothing in a fraction of a second. If the jets cut into your foot or hand, it could result in amputation or other severe injury; or the cleaning solution may be injected into your blood stream, which could be fatal.
