Why Use a Reclaim Floor?
ABS Blast Abrasive media reclamation systems are a critical part of the abrasive blasting process. An efficient media recycling system will save your operation both time and labor, which translates to saving your business money. An effective media reclaim system reduces costs by allowing blast media to be recycled and thus re-used. Recycling abrasive media will help reduce abrasive disposal costs. It also allows for automation of blast media recovery, thus saving man hours. An abrasive media reclaim system from ABS Blast will pay for itself in no time at all.
H-Shaped Partial Reclaim System
The “H”-shaped partial reclaim system is typically used in an enclosed abrasive blast room design that allows for positioning of the work piece in between two longitudinal metered screw assemblies along each side wall of the blast room. The position of the screw assemblies allows the abrasive delivered from the blasting nozzle, which is either blown or rebounded off the work piece, to strike the side walls and fall into the screws; automatically reclaiming approximately 60-90 percent of the blast media. The remaining abrasive on the floor is pushed into the metered shed plate screw assemblies at the end of the work shift. The “H”-shaped floor design is typically utilized in a “flow-thru” room configuration where heavy work pieces, and/or material handling devices, can drive into the room and position the work piece on the steel covered concrete floor located between the longitudinal screws. This system is best suited for medium to high production.
ABS Blast offers a variety of reclaim floor designs and blast room configurations.
