Vertical, horizontal & overhead blasting power.
The VertiDrive M3 Pipeblaster robot was designed for the removal of coatings and any type of dirt or marine growth on vertical steel pipes with a diameter of 500 mm and up (no limit). This includes the legs of oil rigs, bridges, mooring jetties, windmill towers, etc. It is remote-controlled for operator safety, comfort and productivity.
The unit can be equipped with a one-blast, two-blast or hydroblasting nozzle for coating removal. The reciprocating boom can be easily adjusted to suit the required pipe diameter. The boom will follow the pipe surface at an equal distance at all times. Depending on the size of the pipe, the unit will clean/blast up to 50% of the circumference in one stroke.
The nozzles can be adjusted to the most efficient angle and distance to the surface. Connected to two blast pots, an air flow of 20 cubic metres ensures the fastest blasting operation on the market. The unit adheres to the wall with permanent magnets in the drive assembly. The drive assembly can be adjusted to a suit a minimum pipe radius of 500 mm (no maximum). The lightweight construction and quick (dis)connect systems reduce the assembly time to approximately ten minutes.
Ladders, aerial work platforms and scaffolding are no longer required with the application of our robot, as it can easily drive vertically, horizontally and even upside down against steel surfaces.
Easily change applications in just a few minutes, which allows you to change from Dry-blasting to Washing without wasting any time. Easy to use UHP water jetting, wet blasting, camera inspection, NDT, induction or any other desired application.
The longest running model with a worldwide track record. Series production for this model started as early as 2013, while development continued to give us the model we have today.
Enthusiastic users deploy the robot across theworld for various jobs such as UHP Water Jetting, Washing, Dry Blasting, Wet Blasting and camera inspection, but the possibilities are still expanding.
