Many cleaning projects are delayed or deemed impossible because of their difficulty, high costs and environmental complications. The Farrow System changes this situation forever. The Farrow System is a revolutionary, environmentally safe and cost effective surface cleaning method that quickly removes protective coatings, oxidation and graffiti from surfaces without damaging them. It also cleans wood, plastics, composites, steel, aluminum, brass, ceramic tile, concrete, asphalt, decorative pavers, stone, brick and more.

Patented worldwide, The Farrow System is a low-pressure system that works by adding heat to the cleaning process. This adds energy, creates free flow, adds control and increases cleaning speeds. The system exclusively uses Farrow Green Clean, a natural and chemical-free volcanic crystal, optimizing its properties of environmental safety, cleaning without damage and incredible efficiency.

The Farrow System was invented and developed by Nigel Farrow, who discovered that adding heat to his process increased cleaning speeds to more than double the efficiency of cold methods and enabled him to blast green. His discovery was verified by a scientist at Anglia Ruskin University in Cambridge, England, who proved that adding heat brings tremendous energy and free flow to the process. He also confirmed that heat multiplies the effectiveness of Farrow's natural cleaning media, Farrow Green Clean, which further enables the system to cut cleaning times and costs.

Safer for the environment, safe for you

The Farrow System combines the fundamental elements of nature -- water, heat, minerals and air -- and forges them into a powerful cleaning method. This patented system adds heat to a low-pressure mixture of water and Farrow Green Clean, a natural, chemical-free volcanic crystal. This safe, low-pressure, vapor-like stream is directed against the surface to be cleaned. Upon contact with the surface, the unique characteristics of Farrow Green Clean come into play. Each particle bursts into multiple cleaning “missiles” that lift the coating from the surface. Each particle packs many punches, reducing cleaning time and media consumption significantly.

The process is dust-free and leaves only a moist residue, which is easily swept up and removed. The Farrow System can clean surfaces impossible to clean with other systems. It can take off just one layer at a time and can also create controlled profiles ideal for recoating. Farrow Green Clean is available in several grit sizes developed for a range of cleaning applications.

The Farrow System has almost limitless uses in consumer, industrial, marine, government andmunicipal applications. Hawthorne Cat’s recent customers have included the USS Midway, USS Missouri, Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard, U.S. Coast Guard and many others.
