Thunderblast HPW Hammer


RME’s innovative processing solutions extend to the alumina refining industry also. Having won a major design and build project for de-scaling settling tanks in Western Australia, RME contracted Solidtech Engineering to take on a particular portion of the overall scope. The vision which we turned into reality combined the effective yet previously unrelated de-scaling methods of high pressure water (HPW) blasting and hydraulic impact hammers.

Solidtech Engineering self-managed the design, production, testing and commissioning trial of the prototype Thunderblast HPW Hammer. The trial was very successful, resulting in de-scaling time improvements of up to 350%. Further trials are continuing and there is also the possibility of adapting the technology to suit different hammers and applications.
