Dust Collection in a Shot Blasting Facility

Redesigning & Building a New Dust Collection System

Shotblasting is a widely used method of cleaning and strengthening metal, where abrasives are sprayed onto a component at an extremely high velocity. The process creates significant particulate, both from the abrasive being used as well as the blasted material. Since shotblasting is used across many industries and in various applications, many shotblasting facilities deal with contaminate that may be toxic, corrosive, or explosive in nature. A properly designed and implemented dust collection system for shotblasting facilities is therefore critical in order to maintain a safe environment and high quality production.

Adding a Clamp On Spark Arrestor for Extra Protection  

Additionally, the client had an existing spark trap in place but had concerns that it was not designed properly. After talking with our design team and watching the video of the spark trap in action, they decided to add it to the system for security.

After implementation, the client's new equipment was able to operate at full capacity, with environmental contaminates now being safely captured with reduced explosion risk, thanks to their new dust collection system and spark trap.
