Patented Cleaning System:The JOS technique works with a mixture of water (up to 10 gallons per hour), low air pressure and fine inert safe abrasive powder. Together these form a swirling vortex, which when fired onto the contaminated surface, removes the unwanted elements such as graffiti, certain types of paints, carbon deposits, stubborn dirt and scale from a wide variety of materials from brick to stone, metals, even wood and plaster
The JOS technique works with a mixture of water (up to 10 gallons per hour), low air pressure and fine inert safe abrasive powder. Together these form a swirling vortex, which when fired onto the contaminated surface, removes the unwanted elements such as graffiti, certain types of paints, carbon deposits, stubborn dirt and scale from a wide variety of materials from brick to stone, metals, even wood and plaster.
A range of JOS nozzles are available for most tasks. The standard nozzle will quickly and efficiently clean most surfaces. A micro nozzle can be used for more detailed work and for the most intricate work there is a JOS Piccolo Nozzle. Whichever nozzle is used, the JOS method produces results far superior to any other cleaning system.Stone Applications currently use JOS Cleaning on the following:
Stone & Brick
Concrete
Terra cotta
Ceramic Tiles & Glass
Copper (removal of oxidation and sulphur deposits)
Brass (removal of oxidation and sulphur deposits)
Bronze (removal of oxidation and sulphur deposits)
Aluminum (removal of oxidation and sulphur deposits)
TORC
This is a new nozzle design exhibits a swirling vortex method from the supplier of JOS. The TORC allows for varying sized apertures of nozzle and is even more efficient than the JOS method since it uses less water in the swirling process. This means a lower consumption or granulate and the ability to work drier or dry whilst still maintaining the vortex. Torc nozzles can be retrofitted to an existing JOS strong System.
Many significant buildings have been given a new lease of life from cleaning using the JOS/TORC systems. These include:
Buckingham Palace
Harrods
The Albert Memorial
Royal Mews of Windsor Castle
St James Palace
Empire Bath Hotel
Westminster Abbey.
Oxford Colleges
Canterbury Cathedral
Stafford Library
Salisbury Cathedral
