I assume the ceramic media doesn't leave any "grit" behind. There are horror stories out there on the use of various "blasting" methods and some sort of grit being left behind and not easily cleaned out of all passages/etc. BTW - very nice looking case.

Dry Ice just contains water. You don,t have to worry about grid.
Mainly they use this method of cleaing for the food industy to clean their
tools. Food equipment does not allow any other cleaners.

Actually, sodium bicarbonate is used on food equipment here in the US, but expensive dry compressors must be used (as opposed to oil-bath type which put an oil film in the blast air).

As a reminder, following the tumbling process, ALL the oil plugs in this case were removed and the passages thoroughly cleaned. Ollies isn't about to let a case go out the door if there's a possibility of it stroking out on startup. That said, I will thorougly clean it before assembly just to be certain.
