Hydromechanical Descaling Pumps

Industrial Duty Pumps & Accessories for Hydromechanical Descaling Applications



In Hydromechanical Descaling high-pressure water is used to remove the scale after hot rolling steel. The system uses spray bars with special nozzles, to blast the scale from steel surface. The operating pressure of the hydromechanical descaling unit is typically 3,000 to 6,000 psi. There are several advantages to using hydromechanical descaling:

  • Removing scale keeps the scale material from contaminating the rollers and conveyance methods
  • Scales must be removed before steel treatment
  • Provides better material that is immediately ready for a machining process

The durability and long-life of Cat Pumps products have the attributes that system designers require in the hydromechanical descaling systems. A reliable and always-ready high-pressure system is mandatory.

With field-proven dependability in applications around the globe, Cat Pumps provides the best high-pressure water pumps and systems for hydromechanical descaling applications.
