    Sandblasting vs Water-blasting

    Sandblasting vs Water-blasting

    In the industry of industrial construction, maintenance, and repair there are quite a few techniques that can be used to shape and form the oft rigid substance known as concrete. That’s why Pride Development & Construction felt that it would be important to discuss and distinguished two very similar, yet still unique, industrial contracted services offered by PDC. Throughout the Four Corner states and the Las Vegas area, PDC has been contracted to both sandblasting and water-blasting. Each have their unique advantages, though they are seemingly very similar.

    Is Sandblasting better?

    The reason sandblasting came to be was because of the inadequacies of pressure washing general sanding’s ineffective power. Hence, sandblasting. The curious thing about sandblasting is that it doesn’t necessarily require sand to be used to bring results. In truth, abrasive materials or any sort can be mixed with water or air which is then power blasted at the surface needing to be cleaned or sanded. So if your Phoenix industrial building needs this method done, PDC has mastered this process and can easily identify when sandblasting is in fact the best solution for your building’s needs. Whether the building needs to be smoothed, needs to be blasted to show more texture, or even completely reshape the targeted surface altogether. Sandblasting truly is a multifaceted service that PDC offers its Phoenix, New Mexico, and Utah clients. The industrial uses of sandblasting can reinforce a deteriorating concrete wall, transform natural and unnatural constructs that might be blocking a Phoenician earthen reconstruction project, or work somewhat like epoxy…only on the industrial floors.

    Though sandblasting does offer a more “final” touches to an industrial project in a city like Phoenix. Water-blasting could very well be equated to the hammer that lowers the boom before sandblasting can rework it into a more polished industrial construct. Water-blasting is often used to a very high pressure to “blast” away substances like concrete, large rocks, bricks, and even cinderblocks. Infact, water-blasting has very little to do with washing or cleaning an industrial surface. Instead, it plays a very large part in reconstructing and renovating large industrial buildings or facilities. Water-blasting jets can weaken and ultimately wash off concrete casings around something like a steel girder, break down dilapidated brick walls, and ultimately is an integral part in the demolition process of a facility needed renovation,

    Of course, both of these contractual services through Pride Development & Construction carry their own importance and functionality with your Phoenix industrial job, or any industrial job for that matter in the Southwest. So how would you know which one your job needs? The answer is PDC will know. The professional and extremely experienced staff at PDC can identify the opportunities of your building’s reconstruction and which service would work best. If not both of them in varying roles! Either way, trust the experts at Pride Development & Construction. It has always been their goal and will continue to be the consummate professional industrial contractor who strive in every job with only the highest quality of work and costs that ensure your building can stay on budget.

    And even if sand and water blasting isn’t what your facility needs, Pride Development & Construction will still work to help your project. PDC provides a range of services to suit your industrial needs, PDC has the experience of serving both large and small businesses. We have the advanced training to get the results you need, no matter how big or small the job.

    Top 3 Ways Carbon Fiber Reinforcement Should Be Used on Your Phoenix Building

    Carbon Fiber Reinforcement is a brilliant way to ensure longevity of any facility’s foundation and other major concrete constructs. This blog recently discussed (which can be read here) how Pride Development & Construction would like to see every new Phoenix building or industrial facility built using carbon fiber reinforcements from the foundation up. But in case you’re company’s Phoenix building has already been standing for years and the idea for a new building is decades down the road, we at PDC wanted to review three ways that carbon fiber should be used on your Phoenix building.

    Top Updates to Make to Your New Mexico Industrial Mining Operations

    Top Updates to Make to Your New Mexico Industrial Mining Operations

    Top Updates to Make to Your New Mexico Industrial Mining OperationsIndustrial mining operations often deal with heavy loads, extremely powerful equipment and highly toxic and corrosive materials. It is absolutely essential that the operations base and all its facilities are kept maintained and updated so that they are always structurally sound. Any breakdowns can lead to catastrophic results that can threaten the safety of people and the environment.

    Ongoing maintenance is essential to making sure that your New Mexico industrial mining operations are as safe as they can be. However, it is worth considering these top updates as they address common problems for industrial mining operations:

    Ceiling Support

    Over time, the ceiling of your industrial mining operations can sag or show cracks. This can happen because of water damage, exposure to extreme heat or chemicals, or simply the burden of very heavy weights over time. Even heavy duty materials like reinforced concrete can begin to crack or to sag.

    Adding ceiling support helps to restore the ceiling and make it structurally sound. Methods for adding this support vary based on the material of the original ceiling and what problems it is experiencing. However, adding reinforcements and a fresh layer of concrete are common methods.

    Structural Column Repairs

    Structural columns help to provide support to the ceiling to prevent sagging and other damage. They can also support the floor above it, which could be holding heavy equipment or essential supplies. Ensuring strong structural columns is essential to the health of your industrial mining operations.

    Like ceiling support, the methodology used for structural column repairs will depend on the type of materials used and the damages present. Adding reinforcements and rebuilding the column through this addition of fresh materials, such as concrete, are common.

    Tank Coatings

    In your industrial mining operations, you probably store a lot of chemicals and other supplies, including water. The tanks you use to store these materials can break down through exposure to chemicals or as a result of aging. Tank coatings help to protect your New Mexico tanks from rusting or corroding, which can lead to leaks that can cost you a lot of money or pose a threat to health. Tank coatings also add a layer of insulation, which can help protect your inventory and reduce your utility costs. Tank coatings can (and should be) used on tanks of any size and holding any type of material.

    New Mexico has a thriving industrial mining base. Pride Development & Construction offers industrial mining services you need to keep your industrial mining operations safe and at peak efficiency, helping you to remain competitive in this marketplace. We serve industrial clients throughout New Mexico, and we offer a wide selection of services. In addition to ceiling support, structural column repair and tank coatings, we also offer such essential services as water and sand blasting, concrete cutting, concrete restoration, retrofitting, tank rehabilitation, and lead or asbestos abatement, among others. We can help you set up your industrial mining operations in New Mexico or keep them maintained to protect your investment and your employees.

    The Perfect Beam for Phoenix Remodels

    When you remodel your home, you shouldn’t overlook the ceiling. There are many more options for your ceiling besides a flat, white surface. You can choose different textures or install foam or metal tiles with different designs. You can paint a design on the ceiling, like a chevron print that’s very popular, or even paint it a solid color other than white.
