What is Abrasive & Sandblasting Dust Collection?
Abrasive blasting can be a rough business.
Abrasive blasting uses compressed air or water to direct a high-velocity stream of gritty, coarse material such as silica, sand, coal slag, glass, or steel shot to clean objects, remove burrs, apply texture, or prepare surfaces for painting or coating.
Why Abrasive & Sandblasting Dust Collection is Important
The Abrasive & Sandblasting Dust Collection process can produce a large amount of dust from the abrasive being used, or from the object or surface being blasted. The airborne dust created by abrasive blasting can be hazardous and harmful and can cause silicosis, lung damage, and respiratory problems.
The abrasive materials used to blast can be unhealthy and contain trace amounts of toxic metals such as arsenic, beryllium, and cadmium.
Controlling, containing, and eliminating potentially dangerous dust from abrasive and sandblasting is essential to keep your workplace safe, clean, healthy, and operating smoothly and efficiently.
