Smet Jet Africa (Pty.) Ltd. (SJA) is a South African-based Level 2 B-BBEE industrial cleaning company located in Evander, Mpumalanga.
SJA provides a wide range of specialized industrial cleaning services for large and small industrial producers such as petrochemical producers, power plants, waste processors, metal processing companies, pharmaceutical companies and food manufacturers. Some of our current clients include SASOL, ESKOM, BASF, Sappi and INEOS International Group.
The company is spearheaded by a young, diverse and dedicated management team, who are constantly innovating and improving on our cleaning systems and processes to stay ahead of the opposition and remain the preferred service provider.
In the next few years, we aim to grow and expand into Cape Town, Durban, Richard Bay, as well as African countries, such as Angola, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. We are looking to deliver Turnkey Project Solutions to these countries.

We all have a vacuum at home and it is an almost essential piece of cleaning equipment. SJA also employs vacuums, but on a much larger scale than the ones at home. Our liquid ring vacuums are almost as irreplaceable as our home vacuums. These industrial scale vacuums are integral to assisting in cleaning up spills, draining sumps, wells, blocked sewers, silos and boilers.
Smet Jet Africa proudly owns 3 Industrial vacuum tankers, and a fleet of 5 Industrial vacuum tankers.
Some contaminants are difficult to remove with high pressure like rust and lime scale. Some product residue can be better removed dissolving them using a chemical product. This technique is called Chemical Cleaning. SJA has many years of experience in cleaning using chemicals (and in surface treatment) for industrial contaminated systems and installations.
First, we determine the most suitable chemical product and concentration for the cleaning during a test phase. This product will be pumped through the system or installation to be cleaned through a closed circuit until the contaminant has been fully removed. Next, the system or installation will be flushed so that all chemical residues are removed. This technique is also applied before new systems and installations are commissioned to remove protective coatings.
Smet Jet has performed chemical cleaning of boilers all over Europe and South Africa, some of our clients being Eskom and SASOL.
ONLINE TUBE CLEANING (ATC SYSTEM)
The Automatic Tube Cleaning System is installed on heat exchangers and keeps the tubes clean without time-consuming intervention. Specialized cleaning balls are injected at set intervals into the cooling water flow. The balls rub the tubes clean and are then trapped at the outlet of the heat exchanger, where they are prepared for the next cleaning cycle.
Innovas Technologies’ Helios automatic tube cleaning system is the key to energy-saving, cost-effective tube cleaning for industry, power plants and commercial applications. Traditional cleaning methods have proven to be inefficient, since they require process shutdowns, use harmful chemicals and are expensive to operate.
Ultrasound is used for removing problem contamination from all forms of hard surfaces, such as metals, plastics and ceramics. Its unique properties can be harnessed to clean items of all shapes, sizes and technical complexity by penetrating holes and cavities that are impossible to reach using ordinary cleaning methods.
The principle of the ultrasonic cleaning process is as follows. Piezo electric transducers are attached to immersion plates which are attached/fixed to the cleaning tank. They generate ultrasound waves that vibrate the cleaning fluid at very high velocity, creating a process called cavitation. Millions of tiny bubbles implode within the solution and penetrate into every orifice of the item being cleaned, removing dirt and grime within seconds.
Concrete demolition using high pressure jetting equipment is an alternative to breaking concrete using traditional methods, such as jack-hammering. Water blasting produces less dust, creates less noise, and is safer than the jackhammer to operate. Using hydro demolition, the concrete and rebar are also left in better condition to bond to the new concrete fill. It demolishes unsound concrete at ground level, in walls and pilings, and even overhead.
Aqua Jet uses powerful cutting force of water and sand (garnet) to create a unique cutting “tool”, or jet. Add this to a Numeric Control, with imaginative software and the accurate cold cutting of virtually any material is possible. The process is essentially the same as water erosion found in nature but greatly accelerated and concentrated.
