Blastroom - ABS Blast

Abrasive blasting has been around for as long as man could throw a mineral abrasive, such as silica sand on to an object. The reasons for the surface preparation vary from removing an existing coating to preparing the surface to accept a new coating. The idea is simple and the industry was born with the advent of the air compressor.

An abrasive blast room is the core to any modern abrasive blast system.

Confining the blasting operation to a controlled clean environment enables efficient abrasive recycling.

The design criteria required for a properly sized blast room system includes the size of the largest work piece, weight of the largest work piece, material handling method, the number of hours of blasting per day, and the base material of the work piece.

Each of these items needs to be addressed in order to finalize the configuration of the blast room.
