The Torbo system handles industrial maintenance applications; such as cleaning or removing layers of concrete, removal of paint by layers, total coating removal to a specified degree of cleanliness (white metal etc.) or removal of oxidized layers from steel with ease. The Torbo system is also very effective in sensitive applications such as the petrochemical industry, where sparks or static electricity are prohibitive (by coating each particle of the blast medium with water, the system effectively eliminates this concern).
