Recycling Equipment

To use your Abrasive over and over again...

Blast Room Recycling Systems give you the ability to use your Abrasive over and over again for maximum cost savings. Abrasive consumption as low as 0.1lb Garnet per ft2 have been reported by very satisfied customers with recycling. Recycling allows for greatly reduced abrasive purchases and reduced transport, handling and disposal costs.

The Recycling System can be accurately adjusted to achieve the optimum particle size balance for any particular blasting requirement. Recycling is done in a dry process, so it is critical to have a weather proof enclosure for your blastroom.

Recycling Systems

The Recycling System Model MK3 is a specially designed for use in High Production Blast Rooms. its Rotary Trash screen and Triple Airwashes provide efficient cleaning and reprocessing of used Abrasive for immediate re-use. The MK3 is a modular assembly unit which can be easily modified to suit any height of building and work area. Only an electrical connection and compressed air supply are needed for immediate operation.

The MK3 is designed to clean used Abrasive. All trash such as cigarette butts, broken glass, paint flakes, welding rods, stones etc. are removed from the used Abrasive. In addition the system will remove broken Abrasive grains (fines) and dust particles from the used material.

The MK3 is a low maintenance and easy to operate system with adjustable controls for material flow and Airwash cleaning. The total throughput of the system is dependent on the degree of cleanliness of the used/dirty abrasive and the degree of fines extraction required. Typical throughput capacity is up to 9,000 lbs per hour.

Why Recycle Garnet?

Garnet is one of the world's most efficient blasting abrasives in terms of high speed blasting, very low abrasive consumption, very low dusting and no adverse environmental or health impact. Because Garnet's grains are amongst the hardest and toughest minerals known to man, weathered and toughened over thousands of years, they do not shatter on blasting impact. Depending on surface hardness and nozzle pressure, typically only about ten percent of the Garnet grains break on impact, forming new sharp cutting edges thus maintaining most of their superior effectiveness and cutting ability even after many uses.

In Blasting Sheds, Field Blasting Yards and all other applications where the used Garnet can be recovered, Garnet can be very successfully recycled many times. Garnet Recycling Systems are designed and built to reprocess used Garnet for immediate re-use in blast sheds and field applications. The systems are of modular design and are easily set up and relocated. Garnet Recycling Systems produce exceptionally high quality reusable Garnet through a sequence of screening and vacuum extraction, utilizing Garnet's unique grain size and specific gravity characteristics.
