Where high-pressure water descales and cleans

The steel industry is a very important market for high-pressure technology. In this key branch of the economy, WOMA high-pressure pumps in various performance classes are used in the operating of forging presses, saw blade cooling in rolling mills or for descaling plants. In the cleaning of casting moulds nowadays, WOMA innovative high-pressure jet technology has also largely replaced the established cleaning methods. The optimum solution in each case depends on numerous factors. Various pressures and flow rates are employed, depending on steel quality, process speed and size. WOMA has been the reliable partner of the steel industry for decades and supplies turnkey plants and accessories perfectly adapted to the required applications.

Water Jetting Applications in the Steel Industry

General parts and surface cleaning

Widely different surfaces and materials must be cleaned regularly so that continuous processes and safety are ensured during operation.

Descaling

The effective removal of scale in the hot rolling of steel is of decisive importance for material quality. Hydrodynamic treatment using high-pressure water jets has proved to be an ideal method for descaling.

Pipe cleaning

Pipes have important functions everywhere in industry. To fulfil these functions, their flow continuity must be ensured.
