This cleaning method is particularly effective for gross and stubborn contaminations, such as paint residues and corrosion. During the process, fine sand grains are being blasted against the surface that needs to be cleaned and abrade the dirt. It is possible to choose between different sizes of grain to obtain different results. We have an in-house blasting cabinet with state-of-the-art blasting and suction technology, but we also provide a transport service. We intend to keep our services as convenient and affordable as possible for you.
This method is, similarly to sand blasting, especially effective for coarse soiling. Instead of sand, small glass beads or crushed glass is blasted against the object. Different grain sizes can obtain different results, depending on your needs. Glass bead blasting is most commonly used for surface finishing or deburring.
Soda blasting is a relatively new technology in the field of abrasive blasting. While it is technically used as an abrasive, many professionals in the field consider soda blasting non-abrasive. Specially granulated sodium bicarbonate (more commonly known as baking soda) is applied at high pressure on a surface. Upon colliding with the surface, it causes ‘mini-explosions’ that remove contaminants or smooth the surface.
Here, we differentiate between air soda blasting and wet blasting to avoid dust. Blasting soda is a non-toxic, non-hazardous, food-grade material that dissolves in water easily and is 100% friendly to the environment.
Dry ice blasting refrains from using ‘rough’ abrasives which grind or damage the surface. Instead, it relies on the purifying force of dry ice, which is being blasted with high pressure on the object.
During the process of blasting, the contaminants are cooled down to -78°C and subsequently blown off by the airflow. This is a process that leaves no residue, as the dry ice sublimates into the atmosphere.
The distinct advantages of dry ice blasting are the absence of erosion on the workpiece, as well as the preservation of mechanical or electrical components. With this method, it is possible to clean on the spot, without an inconvenient dismantling or cooling-off period. Dry ice is non-abrasive, non-flammable and non-conductive, and above all particularly environmentally friendly, as it produces no secondary waste.
For our dry ice blasting, we use products of AMG-Tech GmbH, an affiliated company of Saar Industrie Service GmbH.
