Critical Components Of High Performance Blast Room

1. The Chamber

Design And Construction Of Blast Rooms

To ensure a high production and low maintenance from Blast Rooms, it is essential they are carefully designed.

There are several crucial elements you should be familiar with before you begin your project. Educate yourself today and download the booklet 25 Critical components to assess before spending a dime on a Blast Room.

Here are just a few design considerations of the chamber itself:

  • Walls should be constructed from steel plate suitably stiffened to prevent buckling. All interior surfaces should be free from any protrusion inside the chamber to avoid collecting dust and abrasive.
  • Lighting is of paramount importance to provide sufficient visibility levels for the operator to easily see inside angles, corners, cleats or around complex fabricated items. Lights should never be mounted inside a Blast Room.
  • Doors should be open to allow full access to the Room to utilize the entire size of the chamber. Floor grating and the associated support structure should be engineered to handle the loading levels necessary.
  • There are obviously many more design considerations – more than we can fit on this page, so we have compiled a free report for you to download and read – click here to request.
2. Dust Collection Systems

Blast Room Dust Collectors

A Dust Collector is a vital part of any Blast Chamber. It provides ventilation inside the chamber and it cleans contaminants from the exhaust air. It is essential that the Dust Collector is carefully selected to suit the size of the Blast Chamber, to maintain visibility and required air velocity in the room. In general, the larger the cross section of the Blast Chamber, the larger the Dust Collector. Blast-One can assist in all design and engineering calculations. A Dry Cartridge Collector offers high efficiency dust filtration . Dust is trapped on specially designed cartridges which are automatically cleaned by a Smart Pulse™ cleaning system. Dust is collected in bins for easy disposal.

3 Abrasive Recovery Systems

Abrasive Recovery Systems

Recovery Systems range from 100% area under-floor systems to simple sweeping hopper systems. A Recovery System that has 100% floor recovery allows maximum productivity as operators never need be involved in handling spent abrasive. The most common partial recovery system has a H-section layout. 80% of spent abrasive falls against the length of the walls of the blast chamber, so by having the H-section layout most of the abrasive ends up in the conveyors without the need to sweep. Other alternatives include below ground hoppers, shovel-in elevators and strip recovery with one conveyor often placed at the end of a blastroom, into which everything is swept. Different Conveyor types include, Pneumatic, Screw, paddle and Oscillating conveyors. Feel free to ask us if you have any questions on what you should do.

4. Abrasive Recycling Systems

Abrasive Recycling Systems

Recycling systems are designed to take your used blast media, removed the dust, paint chips, cigarette butts, lenses and other waste and reload your blast pot – without you having to worry about anything! Key components to look for are the trash screens, will they capture all the trash from the blastroom, the air-wash, will it remove all the dust, and the storage hopper, does it hold enough abrasive to blast for a whole day without recycling. When looking at different types of conveyors, always take into consideration the energy consumption and maintenance that the different options have. Often the lowest cost recovery equipment has the highest running costs. Further detail is covered in the free report that you can download.

5. Blasting Equipment

Blastroom Equipment

At the heart of the Blastroom is the blasting equipment itself. The choice of blasting equipment is important, as a blast pot that blasts 20% faster will increase your facilities return on investment by 20% as well. Ensure that your equipment will propel your abrasive of choice out of that blast nozzle at supersonic speeds. If you have any questions, we’d be glad to assist you.
