Industrial Cleaning

When you need to aggressively clean the insides of pipes, tanks, and process reactors to remove chemical buildup, blockages, and scaling, AK Industrial Services delivers fast and effective industrial cleaning services.  When you need to restore the operating efficiency of your heat exchangers or pipes to their original condition, industrial cleaning with hydrolasing is a cost-effective solution.

Hydrolasing (also called hydrolazing and hydro lancing) combines high pressure cleaning power with fully rotating hoses and nozzles to efficiently clean one hundred percent of the inner diameter of tubes, piping, and more.

AK Industrial Services’ remote-controlled hydrolasing equipment can be used on long lines and tubes, and delivers one of the safest industrial cleaning methods for variety of applications.

Save More and Get More with Industrial Cleaning by AK Industrial Services

Remote controlled hydrolasing effectively uses ultra-high pressure (UHP) water jetting to remotely remove hard-to-reach materials, build up, and deposits on horizontal, vertical, and overhead surfaces. Hydrolasing is frequently used on materials including paint, epoxy, asphalt, fixatives, concrete, metal, and much more.

Traditional methods of cleaning tubes and lines can be cost-prohibitive.  Without hydrolasing, pipefitters must assemble scaffolding, break down pipes and lines, and then begin the process of breaking down build-up, contaminants, and deposits. With hydrolasing by the AK Industrial Services team, you save more by reclaiming that time, productivity, and labor cost. Request a quote now, and take advantage of robotic UHP water jetting that’s far more efficient.
