TORC System An Environmentally Friendly Industrial Cleaning System As Used By Industrial Cleaning Company Charles Piton Ltd.
What is Torc? The TORC systems’s most distinctive feature is its revolutionary modulised nozzle, which creates a gentle swirling vortex utilising low volumes of water, fine inert granulate and air. When in the hands of a competent person the results that are produced are probably the most sensitive and efficient methods of cleaning masonry. The TORC system supersedes and offers additional benefits as well as other improvements over the original Jos system which Stonehealth introduced into the UK back in the 1980s. The innovative TORC nozzle is available in a range of different sizes and types which can be selected for cleaning and removing unwanted matter from many various surfaces including large areas of ashlar or fine detailed stone carvings without damaging the substrate.
TORC most effective in removing?
Carbon sulphation Lime & cement based paints Paint and plaster residues Some old oil based paints Bitumen (if oxidised) Limescale Efflorescence What surfaces should I use the TORC on? It is most effective in removing carbon pollutants and other unwanted matter from stone, brick, terracotta, ceramic tiles, glass, faience and concrete; also oxidation and sulphation from bronze, brass, copper, and anodised aluminium.
TORC How Does It work?
The TORC Head is modularised into separate components which results in an efficient and gentle swirling vortex using less water and granulate. The combined effect of the high frequency spinning Torc components produce the necessary pressure at the surface to be cleaned.
TORC has a removable nose section allowing choice of 5, 7, 9, 11 or 13mm apertures. Plus a 5mm parallel version, for detailed cleaning. Our highly skilled Torc User approved technicians that get the best out of the TORC system.
