Dustless Blasting is a form of wet abrasive blasting that efficiently removes paint, corrosion, and coatings from a variety of surfaces including metal, brick, and wood.
Dustless Blasting equipment owners have a distinct competitive advantage from the start.
Armed with brand recognition, marketing support, reliable American-made equipment, and a self-contained rig that’s made to move, you’re able to perform countless onsite jobs that others simply cannot.
You can offer paint stripping, cleaning, and etching services in a variety of high demand markets. Some examples include:
Construction: masonry cleaning, heavy equipment cleaning, paint stripping, and more.
The bottom line is that almost everything is painted, rusted, or dirty, and will eventually need to be restored. By offering this valuable alternative to purchasing new items, you are making money while saving your customers lots of money too. It’s a win-win for everyone.
Blog Post: How many ways can you use Dustless Blasting?
I had more business than I could handle. I made my investment back in about 2 months.— Ryan W, Business Owner
Supplement your income on the weekends
Make some extra cash in retirement
Fit around an unconventional work schedule
(e.g. offshore worker, teacher, firefighter)
Even if you only plan to run your Dustless Blasting machine for 5 hours a week, the cash adds up significantly. That’s because our contractors make, on average, $300 per hour of blasting.
Escape your nine-to-five
Start working for yourself
Stop making someone else rich
If you can run your machine for 10, 20, or even 40 hours a week, you’ll see why so many of our contractors are happy to quit their jobs in favor of working for themselves.
I've already got jobs lined up and I haven't even gotten home yet! I'm looking forward to getting home and getting started.— Lorne A, Business Owner
If you start to get more business than you can handle, scaling up is simply a matter of buying another machine, teaching someone how to use it, and sending them off to do the jobs you can’t. Based on blasting for under 20 hours a week, your business could plan to deliver sales of about:
$300,000 in the 1st year with 1 mobile system
$600,000 in the 2nd year with 2 mobile systems
$900,000 in the 3rd year with 3 mobile systems
$1.2 million in the 4th year with 4 mobile systems
Some of our business owners have done just this. So if you want to take control of your financial future, this might be the opportunity you’re looking for.
The opportunities to make money don’t stop after you have removed all the old coatings, rust, and grime for your customer. Use the auxiliary air ports to power paint guns, air tools, and more.
This means that you can offer sealing, priming and/or painting services in addition to blasting — and charge a premium for doing so. After all, this makes you a one stop shop for your customers.
Unlike most start up businesses, which can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, you can own your Dustless Blasting equipment for the cost of a pickup truck. Hundreds of contractors have used this remarkably affordable machine to supplement their income or quit their day jobs.
Each unit is self-contained, so you’re ready to start blasting as soon as you pick up your machine.
What’s more, Dustless Blasting allows you to make more in an hour than many people make in a day. This is truly a machine that pays for itself in no time.

Dustless Blasting uses water to suppress the plume of dust, allowing you to work almost anywhere with minimal containment and cleanup.
Imagine that you are stripping a car in a football stadium. With Dustless Blasting, the blast media would be contained in an area about the size of the logo in the center of the field. On the other hand, if you were dry sandblasting, the entire stadium would be filled with airborne media.
Unfortunately, the process isn’t magic. Media that goes into the machine must come out, and it doesn’t disappear into thin air. But compared to sandblasting, the process creates far fewer airborne particles.
We are proud to be a 100% American manufacturer located in Houston, TX. Is there a warranty? MMLJ pressure vessels (blast pots) are backed by a lifetime warranty. Other components, such as the compressor, axles, and water pump are covered by their own individual manufacturer warranties.

Your choice will depend on the type of jobs you want to tackle. All our machines are capable of the same process, but we offer various sizes that are appropriate for many different jobs, from small hobby projects to large industrial jobs.
Blog Post: Which machine should I choose?
When fully loaded, the compact DB500 Mobile S weighs about 5,500 lbs and it can be towed by most trucks.
The larger DB500 Mobile XL weighs about 9,100 lbs when fully loaded. It generally requires a 1-ton truck to tow it.
Finally, the DB800 Mobile weighs about 9,700 lbs when fully loaded.
For wet blasting, you can use any abrasive as long as it is clean, consistent, and sinks in water. The most inexpensive and popular choice of media is 40/70 recycled crushed bottle glass.
The mobile machines are also capable of dry blasting and soda blasting, for which you can use any media that a traditional dry blaster or soda blaster can use.

By using our specially formulated rust inhibitor, you can prevent flash rust for up to 72 hours. Add the inhibitor to the blast water to prevent flash rust during blasting, and then use it as a rinse after blasting is complete.

The Dustless Blasting® process is far safer and cleaner than traditional blasting methods. When open air blasting, we recommend (at minimum):
Eye protection, such as a face shield or safety glasses
Hand protection, such as leather gloves
Ear protection, such as earplugs or earmuffs
The RPB® Nova 3® Comfort System is the best way to stay safe and comfortable while blasting. The included climate control module can provide supplied air that is 20°F above or below the ambient temperature.
Since the debris is captured with the water during the blasting process, Dustless Blasting makes containment easy, so it's perfect for use in areas with strict environmental rules and regulations.
Use 1/3 less abrasive than traditional sandblasting
Use a tiny fraction of the water used in power washing
Avoid toxic chemical strippers

Dustless Blasting is not a franchise. There are no fees or royalties, ever. You truly own your business and are free to make 100% of the decisions and keep 100% of the profits. You still get some of the benefits that come with a traditional franchise, like brand recognition and pre-made marketing materials.
We do not require our contractors to purchase our marketing materials. However, consider this: Your time is valuable, especially when launching your business. You won’t get paid $300/hour to design a brochure in Microsoft Office, but you can make that kind of money blasting. Isn’t your time better spent landing that first job? You don’t have to develop a marketing strategy, design business cards, or learn to code a website when we’ve already done all that for you.
