Soda blasting verse grinding

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I was going to look at having my 250 gal tank soda blasted but unsure of cost? Anyone know about what the cost would be and if it's worth it over just performing a good grind?

I am not sure on the cost but I am going to have mine done rather than grind the whole thing. I want all the rust and chemicals out of the cook chamber and it will make the exterior ready for paint!

Guess it depends on who does it. When I built my UDS, the 55 gallon drum sand blasted inside and out (lid included) was $25.00. The powder coat shop that I use for powder coating did the blast job. I had the exterior of the drum powder coated with high temp powder coating and that was another $50.00. I take lots of small stuff in for blasting and it seems that $25 is the minimum fee my shop charges.

When I worked for a cosmetic manufacturer we would use the aluminum oxide wheels to refinish the inside of our SS mixer tanks when the job had to be done "in house" and cleanup was a factor. Cost was minimal but labor was intensive. If you have the option, go with blasting. Different media will produce varying surface textures if that is important to you.
