Pipeline Blasting

Faster than chemical cleaning, our turbo-blast cleaning capabilities ensure thorough cleaning of above- and below-ground piping with industry-leading systems and processes designed to protect operators, pipes and the environment while delivering unmatched performance at cost-effective prices.

At Keith Inc., our turbo-blast cleaning is accomplished by using a gaseous medium to blast hard particles through a pipeline to remove oxides and deposits from interior surfaces of the piping.

When finished, the interior surface is often smoother than original new pipe. And although calculations, preparation and set-up can take time, the cleaning time is short, which means minimal down time for the pipelines themselves.

It’s a faster process than acid treatment, which often leaves unclean areas and requires neutralizing, disposal and drying. For example, a 25,000-foot pipeline that would take five days to chemically clean can be turbo blasted in four hours.

Other advantages include:

  • Low cost
  • Environmentally safe
  • Use of chemically inert materials
  • New pipe “C” factor or better
  • Non-corrosive cleaning media

And the applications are many:

  • Oxygen service
  • Nitrogen service
  • Hydrogen
  • Propylene
  • Propane
  • Natural gas
  • Alcohol
  • Internal epoxy coating
