Cleaning with abrasive material like sand or glass can sometimes be very messy. To avoid secondary waste and dust the alternative often is dry ice. Even though dry ice can do paint stripping, then it mostly is too slow and will require a large compressor. The solution too cleaning of many surfaces ranging from very soft and fine cleaning of wood to paint stripping is the use of Lava or granite in a low pressure vacuum injection system. With an average consumption of 25-40 kg of blast material per hour then the after cleaning and general protection of the environment around and on the blast sites is minimized.
To even further reduced secondary waste or dust then an option is to combine the IBL abrasive with an INTELblast dry ice blaster, thus reaching a consumption as low as 10-15 kg/hour.
Industries and applications that can benefit from IBL abrasive blasting are:
- Rust removal
- Paint stripping
- Fire restoration of wood and stones
- Facade cleaning where secondary waste has to minimized
- Removal of antifouling on boats
