These pictures were taken at a recent trial for the efficacy of paint and rust removal using the TORC system, from the iron work on one of the Victorian pump houses at Hampton Water Treatment Works. This section of the Water Treatment Works is being converted into offices.
The DOFF is already being extensively used for the refurbishment of a large section of these buildings and now the TORC is being trialled as a gentle means of stripping back the iron work to allow for inspection without causing any further damage.
All involved were very impressed with the TORCS performance and following meetings with the interested parties the system has now been specified.
The site promises to be particularly impressive when finished. Watch this space as we hope to have further pictures as the work progresses.
