Construction folks; familiar with the Farrow-system?
 
It is a blasting process sort of similar to wet sandblasting but the former *appears* to mix water+blasting media before it enters the lance while the latter only adds the blasting media downstream of a pressure washer lance/wand, just ahead of the exit nozzle (utilising venturi effect)

Any of you familiar with Farrow or other blasting systems using an abrasive media slurry? Any in the UAE , you know of?

Farrow claims they are different from similar systems in that they use heat, which I presume implies heated water?

Whats it for? What are you blasting?

Not familiar myself but depending on what you are blasting I may have some contacts. Sand, bead, glass etc is all done in Dubai as far as I know. Relatively reasonable too.

I can confirm that the later you introduce the media the better. It's a similar effect when we are adding plasticiser to shotcrete.

Live in the US; just wanted some input from people familiar with the system. Figured with all the construction going on in the Gulf, some expats might be familiar with it.

I want to blast painted exterior and interior walls of :
brick or cinder block & cementious plaster coat.
Wood thats been stained & varnished .
Class American cars
Concrete driveway

What concerns me is the airborne glass or sand , because this system barely has any water run-off.
