Aqua Drill International

- High-Pressure Water-Jet Cleaning Technology


Our Aqua Milling process is the most advanced high-pressure water-jet cleaning technology available today. Based on years of operational experience and continuous improvement, Aqua Drill’s Engineering has developed the proprietary Aqua Milling technology exclusively used by Aqua Drill International. Employing high-energy water-jets and more than one hundred eighty different customized cleaning tools, the cutting-edge technology can be used for cleaning of pipe systems, vessels, heat exchangers and other equipment.

Incorporating features that are unmatched in the industry, the following Aqua Milling® capabilities will offer you optimal and cost-effective solutions for your cleaning projects:

  • Aqua Milling® removes scale using only high-pressure water
  • 500HP or 650HP powered remote controlled Aqua Milling® units with safety features built in to shut down pressure and all equipment components within ½ sec. in an emergency.
  • All parameters such as cutting speed and overlapping cutting track are precisely controlled by Hydraulic Feed Control System, providing full surface coverage
  • Internals of virtually any conduit from ¾ “ to 120 “ diameter can be cleaned
  • Utilizing a single access point, Aqua Milling can clean up to 1200 ft., cutting around multiple directional changes
  • Ability to climb vertically 300 ft. from ground level without support from above
  • Heavy scale such as 100 lb. pieces of construction debris can be removed from piping
  • Hard scale can be shattered without a slicing effect to protect internal pipe walls that are made of PVC, Teflon, Refractory, Graphite and other delicate materials
  • Hazardous materials can be completely contained. Operators are not exposed
  • Aqua Milling® can save you money on scaffolding and dismantling of bends or vertical sections, increase your heat transfer and improve process efficiency, providing superior cleaning quality

Consider Aqua Milling® as your industrial cleaning solution:

  • If Ultra High Pressure Hydro-Blasting cannot cut the hard incrustation
  • If conventional methods can cut the scale but cannot transport and remove the debris
  • If too many openings or cuts in your system are required prior to the cleaning operation
  • If personnel entry in your system imposes a risk
  • If hand-lancing or hands-on cleaning should be avoided
  • If the access is limited or excessively elevated (Aqua Milling can be performed from grade)
  • If you want to clean your pipe system without shutting down the process (PIO Aqua Milling enters pressurized systems)

List of scales, coatings and materials successfully removed with Aqua Milling ®:

  • Corrosion, Tuberculosis, Mill-scale, Heat Treated Mill-scale
  • Coke, Crude Oil Deposits, Paraffins, Hydrates
  • Water Scale, Calcium Carbonate, Mineral Deposits
  • Epoxy Coating, Zink Coatings, Epoxy Liners
  • Concrete, Salt Water Concrete, Concrete Liners
  • Polycarbonates (Bullet-Proof Plastic)
  • Green, Black and White Liquor
  • HDPE, LDPE Polyethylene, Polyurethane
  • Rubber and Associated Products
  • Sand and Settlements
  • Sea Growth, Mussels, Ocean Deposits
  • Extremely Hard Catalyst, Cobalt, Nickel
