What Is Needed To Create An Industrial Sandblast Room?

Posted on

If you have decided that your industrial company would benefit from adding sandblast rooms, you are probably curious about what makes up a sandblast room. What is needed? What does each part of the system do? To help you figure out the answers to those questions and more, you will want to check out the following:

The Enclosure Itself

The enclosure is made of special material that prevents the escape of any blasted particles. Everything stays contained so you will not have to worry about getting your floors, other machines, and employees covered with particles of whatever material you are blasting. This also keeps everyone safe because the dust from a blast room can make floors extremely slippery.

The Blaster

This is the part of the setup that contains small abrasive materials that are used to blast things with. There will be options on the blaster that will allow the person using it to stop and start the abrasion blasts as needed. This keeps them in total control of the work being done so nothing ends up with too little or too much blasting. This also saves a lot of materials from being so damaged that they have to be tossed out and replaced by another.

The Dust Collector

Imagine the amount of dust that ends up in the air when you are sandblasting something. While you will most likely wear personal protective equipment, you still want to eliminate as much of the dust as possible. Not only do you want your respiratory filters to last longer, but need to be able to see well while you are working in the booth. This is where the dust collector comes in. It will continuously run while the blasting room is in operation.

Now that you know a lot more about what makes up an industrial sandblast room, it is time to start putting together the plans for one for your company. You can build one yourself and order the individual parts that are needed to make it work or you can hire a professional to do the installation and setup for you. Having someone there with experience will be helpful as they will be able to show you how it all works once it is put together. Learn everything you can about the sandblasting room so you can teach your employees.
