Mill Scale Removal Made Easy!

It was a busy week here at Dustless Blasting! Part of our team was at the Offshore Technology Conference, showing how Dustless Blasting helps companies maintain productivity while still achieving higher safety and environmental compliance.

Meanwhile back at our headquarters, Bobby told us about his difficulties removing mill scale from steel. He even brought a couple of panels to blast, so he could be absolutely positive that Dustless Blasting would do the trick. Watch the video below to see how it went! 


Mill scale is a tough layer of iron oxides and magnetite which coats the surface of hot rolled steel. It is necessary to remove mill scale before welding or painting can occur, but the process is usually difficult and time consuming. Our process eliminates mill scale quickly and efficiently, leaving a white metal finish. 

Bobby was very impressed with the results, and eager to start using the Dustless Blasting system in his operation! During his search for a solution, Bobby had been given a demo on a different blasting system which uses water to suppress dust, but said the system was much messier, and about 4-5 times slower! 

Dustless Blasting is a great way to improve efficiency in many businesses, and with tightening EPA and OSHA regulations, Dustless Blasting can help you stay safe and eco-compliant as well!
