W-S began in 1993 as a hydroblast and vacuum contractor and retains a number of highly trained individuals with 25 years of experience providing these services to the Coal Fired Power industry.

W-S is recognized nationally as a premier provider of Air heater and Waterblasting services. The W-S competitive advantage is based on pump configurations tailored to minimize downtime, maximize horsepower, and optimize flexibility to rapidly respond to changing job conditions and requirements.

W-S has responded to the changing needs in the industry by developing a fleet of High Volume 20,000 PSI pumps and automated tooling to help reduce downtime for our customers. 

New Automated Lancing System

In our unwavering commitment to safety, W-S utilizes fully automated lancing systems for cleaning tube bundles.

Some tube cleaning systems compromise safety because the operator must handle the cleaning lance close to the blast zone.

Our automated lancing systems are different — and safer. They feature up to three rotating flex lances operating simultaneously with remote-control operations, so operators can thoroughly clean fouled heat exchanger tubes from outside the vessel.


  • Reduced incident rates by removing the technician from the line-of-fire
  • Increased productivity by reducing technician fatigue
  • Regulated operating speed produces a more consistent clean, regardless of technician experience level
  • Quicker access to vessels with higher risk environments that would be otherwise too hazardous for prolonged entry
  • Availability for a wide variety of vessels, from: open or enclosed and vertical or horizontal
