Jetstream Europe has increased its rental fleet of magnetic crawlers to five and has plans to manufacture many more in order to cope with demand from customers...
The company also has plans to add a vacuum unit to the system in order to recover debris that is created in the cleaning process, according to regional sales manager Billy Campbell. He says: "Our magnetic crawler has really taken off. We now have five on our rental fleet and they are constantly in demand. Customers have been impressed with the benefits it provides when used on internal and external storage tanks and other surfaces.
"Surface preparation is a major issue from an environmental point of view and the crawler means that you haven’t got the environmental damage done by the dust and grit associated with grit blasting. The cost savings are incredible. The crawler will be a major growth area for us and that is why we will be investing more in its production at our Halesowen headquarters.”
