Blast-One - Your Premier Choice in Blast room Dust Collectors
Blast-One® Dust Collectors are specifically built for the abrasive blasting industry. The unique design boasts of the industries longest filter life, saving you dollars every day.
How do Dust Collectors work?
Dust laden air gets drawn into and travels down the duct work before entering into the dirty-air inlet plenum at the rear of the Dust Collector. Here the heavier particles drop out of the air stream as a result of a change in air pressure.
The air is then drawn through a large bank of specialized filter cartridges and dust is collected on the outside of the filter cartridge. The now filtered air passes through to the clean air plenum and is exhausted through the fan blower back into the atmosphere.
The build up of particles onto the different filter cartridges are continously dislodged by a automatic reverse pulse jet. The dust particles then drop into the hopper of the collector and is transferred by a screw conveyor to a conveniently located dust outlet for easy transfer to receptacle for disposal.
Dust Collector Features and Benefits
Blast-One Dust Collectors are fitted with teflon coated Ultra™ cartridges which give maximum surface area, and an amazing 99.998% removal efficiency for all dusts over 0.5 micron. This means you effectively capture hazardous dusts and meet clean air regulations and standards.
SmartPulse™ Cartridge Cleaning System
The filter cartridges are reverse pulse cleaned using Maxipulse™ cleaning jets so that filters are cleaned from top to bottom. A SmartPulse™ Controller measures how dirty the cartridges are and only turns the pulse system on when required. This greatly increases the life of the filter cartridges.
Screw Conveyor Dust Discharge
A built in Screw Conveyor discharges all collected dust residue into a sealed bag or drum for safe disposal. The operator simply moves a lever to open and the system empties into an EPA approved collection device.
Blast-One® Dust Collectors incorporate a large fan to draw substantial volumes of air through the containment, and remove all dusts by Ultra™ Filtration.
Why Use A Dust Collectors?
There is growing Environmental concern with the dust generated by abrasive blasting. Many old coatings contain a high percentage of lead which when pulverized into powder by abrasive blasting can form a hazardous and toxic dust. Some projects are now requiring that a full dust-tight containment structure encapsulates all blasting operations to minimize danger to personnel and the environment.
A Dust Collector is used to give ventilation inside containment structures in order to maintain operator visibility and maintain the encapsulated area under a negative pressure. It is also important to dilute the levels of hazardous substances in the air within the contained area to levels below the assigned protection factor of operator respirators.
