ADVANTAGES OF DUSTLESS BLASTING
Unlike traditional methods of media blasting, “dustless blasting” utilizes a mix of water and recycled glass media. There is no “dust cloud” and no hazardous airborne contaminants that are common to sand (silica) or soda blasting (NaHCO3, a strong alkaline).
100% environmentally inert, our crushed glass abrasive will not kill grass as with soda blasting. It eliminates the health risk of airborne carcinogens such as silica. It’s non-hazardous and non-toxic. Suppressing the plume of dust, with water allows us to work safety in almost any urban environment without containment.
For easy cleanup, the operator can lay down plastic in the affected area ahead of time so that the abrasive media can be easily collected for fast cleanup. Because there are no plumes of dust, the media is entirely localized and is easily cleaned away after the job is done.
NO WORK INTERUPTION:
Dustless blasting will not affect your day to day operations. The ability to perform plant maintenance quickly and efficiently without having to shut down operations is invaluable. Nearby workers can continue unaffected, keeping you productive and profitable.
LESS CONTAINMENT NEEDED:
Because there is no dust plume, expensive, time consuming containment doesn’t need to be set up.
CLEANER AND SAFER:
Dry blasting indoors would fill the space with dust and reduce visibility and breathability. Because our process suppresses dust, it’s ideal for confined spaces, like parking garages.
REMOVES VIRTUALLY ANY COATING:
From industrial enamels to epoxy paints our dustless blasting system can remove it all.
SAFE ON MOST SURFACES:
Perfect for restoring all types of surface including wood, metal, brick, concrete, fiberglass and much more.
Our dustless blaster can use almost any abrasive that sinks in water.
SAY GOODBYE TO WARPING:
Our system is powerful on coatings, but gentle on sheet metal. The water in our process decreases heat and friction, which eliminates warping.
LEAVES A PAINT READY SURFACE:
The rust inhibitor decontaminates the metal leaving a clean, chloride free paint ready surface.
FAST AND EFFECTIVE:
No sanding or grinding. We can blast clean any surface in no time.
Because of its abrasive characteristics and fast clean-up, dustless blasting generally offers a lower overall cost than sandblasting, soda blasting or acid dipping and without the side effects.
A rust inhibitor is added to the water during blasting to reduce the potential for flash rusting if left exposed. This rust inhibitor is also environmentally friendly and will prevent rusting for up to 72 hours provided the metal is kept dry.
Dustless blasting will not leave a residue film like soda blasting.
