Industrial Major & Complex Loss Ultrasonic Cleaning on an XXL scale

Mobile Technical Complex De-Rusting

This project proved to be the perfect challenge for newest addition to BELFOR International range of specialist Major & Complex Loss equipment. Designed and built by BELFOR the TBR XXL is perfect for handling large amounts of contaminated items. The TBR XXL Dip Bath Line was transported to site in the UK and was up and running in less than 48hrs. This meant that the recovery programme could be completed in under 2 weeks. In total BELFOR successfully decontaminated over 50,000 damaged stock items with a direct saving of over £750k. The prompt and successful restoration of the items also allowed the customer to fulfil vital customer orders reducing potential costly Business Interruption costs on the claim.
