Alternatives held up to the light

The solution is easy based upon the 100-year tradition: Dry blasting.
From the state of the art, dry-blasting outdoors is prohibited!
- the environment and especially the health of the staff say thank you.

Solutions such as airtight enclosures (time-consuming and cost-intensive), dry blasting with added water (high operating costs, susceptible to failure), maximum water pressure above 2,000 bar (crater landscapes on concrete, no roughness on steel, and high wear and tear costs) result in disadvantages rather than advantages.

Avoidance of dust, reduction of operating costs, cleaned but even concrete surfaces, sufficient roughness depth during steel refurbishment, and high-performance.

The requirements are clear, the answer is simple: torbo
