Achieving a More Productive Blast Cleaning Operation

Originally Presented: Tuesday, November 10, 2020

Mineral abrasives disintegrate at a rapid rate. A few cycles render them into dust, leaving the user with great quantities of it to dispose. Added to that is the productivity cost of working in a dusty environment,  which among other things increases the possibility of re-work. However, mechanical surface preparation does not have to be this challenging. Viable alternatives exist for a more productive blast cleaning operation.
