Blast Media Used for Cleaning Storage Tanks
Traditionally cleaning of crude oil storage tanks may have been completed by sand blasting. The problem with this is dry sand blasting can produce sparks which is a hazard. Also sandblasting causes a lot of dust which means the surrounding environments (homes, properties, cars etc) may have dust residue on them.
MBS uses a special wet blasting process (dustless blasting) which is used to clean your storage tank. The blast media used will vary, but we may use garnet, crushed glass or glass beads.
