Red-D-Arc Blasterentals Keeps the Fleet Rolling at Smith Transport

Trucking companies like Smith Transport need to get at least 12 years out of their trailers. Replacement costs are substantial at over $70,000. In 2007 the US trucking industry began using epoxy coating to protect against corrosion. Over time the epoxy gets broken down by the elements and needs to be stripped to allow for visual inspection and repairs. This is a time consuming process requiring a team of up to 12 workers scraping the coatings for more than a week.

Using the power of the Farrow 150, Smith Transport was able to cut prep time per trailer from weeks down to hours. The protective coatings are stripped from the trucks so that they can be inspected, recoated and returned to service in less time, and at a fraction of the cost. Fleet life is extended, down time reduced, and money is saved. That’s smart business.

Red-D-Arc offers an extensive line of Farrow Coating Removal equipment for sale, lease and rent.
