IBL Abrasive

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, it is mostly is too slow and will require a large compressor. The solution to the 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 the clean-up and general protection of the environment on and around the blast site is minimized. The IBL abrasive is controlled by air and with the combination of a diesel compressor and therefore no electricity is required, which makes cleaning in remote areas or on building sites possible.

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
