Aqua Laser Alberta Ltd.

COMPANY PROFILE: Aqua Laser was formed in 1985 with the intent of introducing new technology into the industrial cleaning industry. Our expectations were far exceeded and we soon became the leader in Ultra High pressure water jetting and abrasive water jet cutting. We now operate four Ultra High pressure units which are capable of 35,000 psi (240,000 kpa) for extended periods. These units are extremely reliable and we usually exceed our clients expectations in all areas such as job performance, employee knowledge, attitude and safety.

We have performed our cleaning and cutting tasks for most of the major Petro Chemical and Refining plants located in western Canada.

HEAT EXCHANGER CLEANING: Our heat exchanger cleaning equipment is of our own design which was developed in 1985 for the Petro Chemical industry which had extremely hard deposits which fouled their heat exchanger tubes and where conventional cleaning methods were unsuccessful.

Our goal was to design a cleaning lance that did not require personnel to hold the lance and also incorporate a method to rotate the water jets while maintaining the ability to regulate the rate at which the lance was inserted into the fouled tubes. The result was a method that was safe and effective.

4 Rotary Cleaning Lances capable of cleaning exchangers 60' long in horizontal position or 40' long in the vertical position
MULTIPLE cutting tracks & guides for cutting tanks, vessels

ABRASIVE WATER JET CUTTING: Our abrasive water jet cutting system is completely mobile and is used where the requirements are of a nature where flame cutting can not be tolerated, such as stainless steel vessels and piping, refractory lined vessels and piping and also where the internal atmosphere may be explosive.

As abrasive water jet cutting is done from the outside of the tank or vessel, most jobs can take place before any vessel entry is required. Most jobs utilize a tracking system to hold the cutting head. This method allows for the cut to be made with some degree of accuracy which is beneficial if the piece that has been cut needs to be re-welded.
