Marine Liqua-Blaster —Literature Available
Butterworth Systems recently introduced the Marine Liqua-
Blaster®, an ultra-high-pressure water blaster unit for shipboard cleaning and descaling. Operating the Marine Liqua-Blaster unit at pressures up to 10,000 psi, one man can do the job normally done by a crew with chemicals, hand tools, or sandblasters. The
Marine Liqua-Blaster unit can also be used to clean condenser tubes, oil spray from machinery, galley grease filters, clogged parts, and the like. 1980 marks Butterworth Sys- tems 50th year of operation. Don
Powell, president of Butterworth
Systems, recently commented at a press conference at their Flor- ham Park headquarters: "In the last 50 years we've seen a lot of companies come and go. Butter- worth Systems plans to keep go- ing strong in the next 50."
