Universal Blastco repaired the sump under this paper machine in just 32 hours. It was 100 feet long and 9 feet wide. We began by first cleaning it out, and then hydroblasting the entire area. Next we core drilled holes through the floor for new inserts to be installed. Wire mesh was then installed on the floor, and then we pumped in new concrete. Once the concrete set, we finished and sealed it.
