ThermaTech - Modular, superheated-water cleaning equipment

ThermaTech is a modular range of equipment producing superheated water at temperatures up to 150ᵒC, for the purpose of masonry cleaning, paint removal and coatings removal on heritage and other structures.

It has been designed in 110v from the ground up to be environmentally and user friendly as well as easy to transport and manoeuvre on site. ThermaTech can be used by a single operator, or for certain applications, two simultaneously using one machine.

The majority of stone surfaces were simply cleaned by washing with water, but the sandstone and render vaulting within the church as well as some of the chapel altars and areas of limestone had suffered from more ingrained dirt and staining. We used Restorative Techniques' Latex Poultice Cleaner (weakest strength A) on these areas. The controlled method of cleaning, and stable non hazardous waste product made this an efficient and effective cleaning method for these areas of the church.

The long duration of this project enabled us to develop our method of working with the latex to achieve a wonderful even appearance, and the client was extremely happy with the results. The smell of ammonia from the pre-cured latex was an issue, so applications were limited and when possible applied late in the day to minimise the impact on visitors. We would certainly consider using the Restorative Latex Poultices again on future projects and indeed have since.

The patio and sunken garden had been neglected for many years, and there was substantial staining and algae on the surface of the stone. The brick walls surrounding the sunken garden were also affected. A test area by another firm using high pressure washers had caused noticeable damage to the surface of the brick and pitting of the stone. We were asked to clean these areas without damaging the brick or stone.

As well as cleaning the sunken garden we were asked to clean 450m2of stone patio. We also had to remove modern plastic paint from the exterior brick of the main house, some 3,240m2, and then repair damage and repaint with mineral paint. Jamie visited the site and we decided that the best approach to take would be to use the Thermatech Superheated Water Cleaning System. Whilst some areas in the rose garden had stubborn staining, we achieved the desired result by going over them two or three times.

The church takes the form of a Greek cross plan, with an octagonal tower above the crossing.

This had caused a significant damp problem within the church and spalling to the bricks. Our task was to remove the existing paint coatings and carry out the necessary masonry repairs.

The paint removal was achieved using a paint softener and the ThermaTech Superheated Water Cleaning System. To assist us in identifying the right approach, Jamie came to site and we carried out various settings for water pressure and temperature. On areas of firmly adhered paint coatings we used the acrylic and polyurethane paint softeners. Having removed the old coatings, we replaced the spalled bricks with matching reclaimed bricks. The existing lime pointing was matched using lime and sand.

Overall, the rendered substrate was in very good condition. Localised areas of dirt had built up in the splash zones alongside pathways and under some of the more open joints in the coping stones along some walls. Because of the nature and use of the building, algaecides and other cleaning chemicals were prohibited and attention needed to be paid to the segregation of work and public areas

We couldn't use chemicals so we tackled the cleaning job using the ThermaTech Superheated Water Cleaning System, as supplied by Restorative Techniques. For the most part, the desired results were achieved in a single pass with the ThermaTech operating at 140ᵒC and 80 Bar pump pressure, allowing us to treat the elevations quickly and efficiently. The areas of deeper, more stubborn staining required a second pass to lighten them to an acceptable level, but yielded very well after the substrate had cooled and dried from the first pass.

Had the use of chemicals been permitted, it is very likely that we would have been able to remove more stains from the walls. However the ThermaTech system removed the majority of the dirt very easily and to the satisfaction of all parties. The coping stones on the walls cleaned up very well, as can be seen in the pictures. As a ThermaTech owner, I'm happy to say that it's gaining a good reputation in and around Limerick.

Philip Scorer

A modular approach to design

ThermaTech is a modular system designed for safety, usability and ease of transit. Some elements are removable to facilitate use, storage and compact transportation.

Pump

The standard pump unit is 110v with a flow range of 4.0 – 8.5 litres/minute. Pressure is adjustable from 30 – 140 Bar (See Lances for optional 0 – 140 Bar and next to no water flow setup). With the addition of a drop-in transformer and appropriate pump unit, ThermaTech can be run on 230v and achieve a maximum pressure of 160 Bar.

Triggers / lances

Triggers are available as either 'Standard', offering constant flow in operation, or as 'Pressure Reducing', which allows pressure adjustment in the range of 0 Bar – Maximum pressure. Standard lances are fitted with standard nozzles to provide a 40ᵒ fan jet of superheated water at temperatures of up to 150ᵒC. Other lances and nozzles are available on request and can often be tailored to your requirements, such as more diffuse steam-type jets etc.

Frame

The tubular steel frame is designed for life cycle longevity and ease of access for maintenance and servicing. It provides hangers for the fuel supply and pump unit as well as providing an exoskeleton to house and protect the boiler unit.

Jerrycan

A removable Jerrycan eliminates the need for an integrated fuel tank in the base unit and minimises the risk of any fuel spillage on site.

ThermaTech has been specifically designed for reliability using high quality, recyclable materials, reducing reliance on chemicals and boosting the performance of milder agents.

User Friendly Design

Designed for one person to load into and out of most vehicles safely. Can be transported in multiple positions.
Digital primary temperature control achieves more accurate temperatures, with less fluctuation, providing better efficiency.
Removable fuel tank with lockable pick-up device minimises risk of serious fuel spillage on site.
Colour-coded high-pressure hoses aid quick set-up times and improve safety awareness. Cold hoses are blue; hot hoses are red.
Numerous in-built safety features to keep machine, operatives and public safe.
Designed to be run on various fuel types* (or a mixture thereof) without adjustment to the fuel delivery system. [*Red or White Diesel, EN14214 Grade Bio-Fuels and 28-second Kerosene.]

Key Technical Details

IP67 rating on pump controls and electronics, exceeding current regulations.
Pump units have secondary outlets allowing for: operatives to depressurise the system from the base unit (as opposed to depressurising from the trigger); easy priming when running from a static water supply (i.e. a barrel or bowser); and even two boiler units to be run in tandem from one pump.
Ground-up design incorporates environmentally responsible manufacturing processes with very little non-recyclable waste produced.
24v controls exceed current regulations and provide a safer working environment.
Five-stage contamination separation in the fuel system ensures good, clean fuel supply, achieving best possible boiler efficiency.
All switches have ‘under-volt’ and ‘over-current’ protection, which protects against the effects of improper power supply and overloading.
A visual gauge on the control panel allows operatives to gain an indication of the condition of the fuel filter, meaning routine maintenance can be carried out before it causes a problem.
ThermaTech utilises a particular angle of nozzle (40 degree), where most systems make use of 25 degree angled nozzles, that as well as being narrower in scope, will potentially provide slower and reduced work rates (and therefore increase labour costs), plus there is an increased risk of substrate damage.
