High-pressure vacuum and chemical cleaning specialists
Our core business is industrial cleaning, using both high-pressure and vacuum techniques for liquids and solids. We also have proven expertise in cleaning, removing and filling fuel and storage tanks, emptying and reloading Catofin catalyst installations and chemically cleaning and surface treating contaminated industrial equipment.
Using high-pressure techniques, we clean a wide range of industrial equipment, including heat exchange units, airfin coolers, tanks, reactors, silos, ships, process piping and other industrial installations.

Hydrodemolition solutions for roads and concrete structures
Smet Jet Group has extensive experience in hydrodemolition. This vibration-free removal technique is well-suited to the demolition of roads and other forms of infrastructure, including bridges and viaducts, as well as buildings and other concrete structures. The technique also exposes and cleans embedded steel reinforcements, ready to be reused.
Our high-pressure techniques are also adapted to the cold-cutting of various kinds of steel and other structures and industrial equipment, including tanks and heat exchange units, among others. This technique is highly suitable for flammable or explosive environments.
Customised high-pressure installations for cleaning tanks, reactors and piping
Our R&D department can develop fully customised high-pressure installations adapted to customers’ specific requirements, enabling them to carry out regular cleaning of production units such as reactors, tanks and process piping.
We have extensive experience in designing and constructing fixed, automatic high-pressure installations all over the world, each fully adapted to the needs and constraints of every customer. We also maintain the operational integrity of every high-pressure installation via regular check-ups, preventative maintenance and repairs.
Sludge dewatering services
Atox, a subsidiary of Smet Jet Group, offers broad-ranging expertise in all kinds of dewatering activities. With its own in-house laboratory for the analysis of sludge samples and an extensive fleet of barges, we are fully equipped to remove sludge up to a depth of 4m.
Our mobile platform is capable of performing dewatering operations via filter press and decanting techniques. These techniques convert the sludge into liquid filtrate and solid filter cake with 80% dry mass content, depending on the type of sludge processed.
We can set-up mobile installations for temporary projects or deliver and maintain semi-permanent and permanent dewatering installations depending on customer requirements. If required, we can also handle the transportation and treatment of the dewatered product.
Installation and maintenance of water treatment systems
Smet Jet Group specialises in the engineering, construction and maintenance of water treatment installations. We can also ensure the operational continuity of existing water treatment installations via regular check-ups, preventative maintenance and repairs.
Waste and environmental management specialists
Over the years, Smet Jet Group has acquired extensive experience in environmental management and is a licensed soil decontamination expert.
We can collect all kinds of refuse waste (both dangerous and non-dangerous waste) from an equally diverse range of sources. We also function as a waste collection and treatment centre and can treat polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), which are primarily used as a coolant in transformers and condensers.
Smet Jet Group also sells and rents a variety of storage equipment for dangerous and non-dangerous waste including drainage, vacuum, liquid and open and closed storage containers.
Alongside the vacuum suction of remnants and refuse, pumping products in and out of silos, and extracting dust from rafters in production facilities, Smet Jet Group can also remove or replace ballast chippings for flat roofs. This technique can be applied to the installation of rooftop gardens and green roofs.
