Providing Comprehensive Environmental Services for North America
Clean Harbors Scarifying and Media-Blasting Services remove staining or near surface contamination from porous and non-porous surfaces. Our processes can also be used to prepare surfaces such as concrete, for sealing with chemical resistant sealers in process floor space, and for secondary tank containments. By removing only the contaminated portions of surfaces, unnecessary demolition, reconstruction, transportation and disposal expenses are avoided.
Clean Harbors evaluates the type and extent of contamination and then selects the best available technology.
Pre-cleaning samples are taken at various locations and depths. These steps provide a baseline that measures the effectiveness of the cleaning technique if the first pass is not sufficient in reaching the established goals.
Engineering controls and proper decontamination techniques for both personnel and equipment ensure that no fugitive emissions or contaminates leave the work zone.
Clean Harbors performs post-cleaning sampling and confirms the effectiveness of the operations after the work is completed, but before demobilization begins.
Clean Harbors can provide customers with reports summarizing the operations performed along with the final results, without incurring the cost of a third party.
Clean Harbors Sodium Bicarbonate (Baking Soda) Blasting is a cleaning and surface preparation technique, an environmentally friendly replacement to conventional sand or grit blasting, and an alternative to chlorinated solvent applications.
Utilizing compressed air at high volumes and medium pressure, specially engineered Sodium Bicarbonate is used to remove many surface contaminants or coatings. Since Sodium Bicarbonate is not harmful to the environment, the residue is easily disposed. read more »
