Industrial And Commercial Sandblasting 

Sandblasting is a large part of business, in some more than others. That said, you understand how important it is to have a name that you can trust in the industry. We understand the importance of sandblasting or homes, or boats, cars, and etc., but it comes a bit different when you’re sandblasting for a pursuit in which you make your money.

Even though sandblasting may not be as important as equipment and personnel, industrial uses for sandblasting can be paramount if you don’t have a plan in place. Be sure to check out our marine page!

In fact, in some cases, it can be downright dangerous, as you may find that your tools and/or equipment may not operate at its highest level. In some cases, this actually may put a stop to operations, which is something that no one can reliably afford - in temporarily lost capital or complete halt of services. 

That said, we at Mobile Sandblasting SoCal offer our heralded dustless sandblasting services to all commercial outfits. 

Heavy Equipment Sandblasting

If you’re working with heavy equipment, you assuredly know what sandblasting can do for you. It’s something that you definitely need to be abreast of, especially when you consider the safety of your personnel and your bottom line. Sandblasting services are a dime a dozen, but when it’s something as precious as your variety of heavy equipment, you can’t just trust this in the wrong hands. 

Dustless blasting, unlike a variety of traditional means, does much in the way to remove virtually everything without compromising its integrity. While some of the materials you use may not be as delicate as other uses of dustless blasting, such as antiques or boats, there’s no need to leave it to chance it if you don’t have to. Dustless blasting With a series of removable nozzles and pressures, you actually have the versatility that the sandblasting world never quite had. 

This is good for heavy equipment because you don’t have to worry about warping any equipment that you apply dustless blasting to, as it’s tough on the coatings that you need to remove - but gentle on your equipment in an eco-friendly way, a new service for companies who specialize in industrial sandblasting.

Asbestos Removal

In the past few decades, we have extensive research on how dangerous that asbestos can be on your health. As a society, we have made extreme strides in its safe abatement, though we know that there is still work to be done. 

Traditional sandblasting has been one of the ways that we have removed asbestos in the past, and while we still consider it to be effective, dustless blasting is a natural and safer replacement for more than a few reasons. Since you know how important it is to have asbestos gone from your property, any safer alternative can be of great use.

In and of itself, removing asbestos is inherently dangerous, even following proper protocols. In sandblasting, a lot of this has to do with the amount of runoff that the water provides when blasting. Any high-pressure system will produce a great amount of water.

Dustless blasting uses 95% less water than UHF, which makes cleanup a lot safer and a lot easier. Traditional sandblasting also creates a lot of dust plumes and sediment, which is a danger that’s magnified when there’s asbestos about. Dustless blasting uses just enough water to suppress the asbestos that would otherwise be in the air. 


Safety is key when you’re operating a refinery, otherwise there will be some pretty big consequences. When it comes to sandblasting, it’s extremely important that you consider virtually everything that you’ll need it to do and what you can’t have done. In specific regards to a refinery, sandblasting can cause some issues through its media - sand. Sand can cause sparks, dust, and static electricity. 

None of these things are good for your refinery. This is a major reason why more and more refineries are choosing dustless blasting, as water suppresses these things, rendering it harmless in its operation.

Dustless industrial sandblasting also does a lot in OSHA compliance. For business owners, OSHA compliance is hugely important if you’re trying to protect your workers, and blasting has long been a part of removing harmful silica that may be in your workspace. In fact, one of the Final Rules of OSHA dictates that you use a less abrasive blasting agent, which is perfect considering that water and glass are the main driving forces when blasting. 

The other rule dictates that more water is used to reduce the amount of dust, as it means less work on the respirators. 

Time is Money

Of course, nothing is more important than the protection of your personnel, but it still stands to reason that work still has to get done. Unfortunately, traditional blasting doesn’t really allow for a job to be done both quickly and thoroughly. Dustless blasting will allow any operator to go without shutting the plant, rendering it useless for the time being. 

This is the fear at the heart of many plant owners, and dustless blasting was designed in mind for it to be quick as well as it is extensive. While it may seem that this method cuts corners, the media in which it uses (water and glass), means that you don’t have to wait a long time for cleanup.

What’s more, is that it doesn’t sacrifice any power. Trust us, dustless blasting has all the power and effectiveness that you need from sandblasting, though it doesn’t have much of the headache that it can provide. The efficiency to remove paint, primer, rust, and surface coating in one step won’t really be matched by traditional sandblasting, especially if you can have it done without worrying about the state of your equipment.
