Sand blasting has been the conventional way to clean surfaces. You simply shoot sand at the surface to be cleaned and paint and rust flakes off.
The advantages are that it is fairly inexpensive and quite fast. The disadvantages are that it pits the surface being blasted, thins and resurfaces it, and it heats up the surface, which can lead to deformation and expansion. Sand also packs cracks, crevices, and small openings and can hide damage that needs to be removed or repaired.
