The TORC cleaning system is a highly efficient cleaning system designed and created by Stone Health Limited for the gentle removal of carbon sulphation, brittle paints, limescale and more. TORC has evolved from the popular JOS system and it creates a gentle swirling vortex utilising low volumes of water, fine inert granulate and air.
When used by our trained operators, the TORC vortex cleaning system delivers amazing results, especially when cleaning brickwork, masonry and stone. It is the recognised and preferred method for stone cleaning by historic stone restoration contractors and other such specialist organisations across the UK.
We have used the TORC system on several projects with great success, leaving the original stone or brickwork in pristine condition, without causing any surface damage or degradation.
The IBIX system is recommended for the cleaning of every type of natural stone, sandstone, limestone, marble and travertine marble, antique terracotta and brickwork.
The dry IBIX process is suitable for the cleaning monuments in stone, terracotta and brick, especially delicate ones which are overlaid with black smoke. atmospheric particles, carbonisation, and other deposits solidified in the base material whilst allowing the retention of the natural protection (patina).
The dry IBIX process with controlled projection of inert minerals such as almandine garnet with a fine grain size and rounded shape (200/250 mesh) or calcium carbonate “CARBONART Z6” is recommended for cleaning brickwork and antique terracotta.
The appropriate pressure regulation and the correct mix of media/air permits the selective removal of dirt deposits without causing break-up or alteration of the surface, especially on the surface of brickwork from delicate tufo.
TORC system cleaning
The TORC system is a complete stone cleaning system, designed and sold exclusively by Stonehealth. It’s an evolution of the Jos system that was introduced to the market over 20 years ago.
TORC removes carbon sulphation, lime & cement based paints, paint residues, some old oil based paints, bitumen and limescale.
Soda blasting is a non-destructive method for many applications in cleaning, paint and varnish stripping, automotive restoration, industrial equipment maintenance, rustremoval, graffiti removal, molecular steel passivation against rust, oil removal by saponification and translocation, masonry cleaning and restoration, soot remediation, boat hull cleaning and for food processing facilities and equipment and tooth cleaning at the dental laboratory.
Edinburgh Stone Repair use Torc system and ibix system with low pressure as low as 0.5 bar with soda to remove carbon staining from bungalows in Edinburgh to bring back natural sandstone colour with out damaging sandstone.
