How to setup your mobile grit blasting unit for onsite blasting projects!

There are a few important steps to take to maximize safety when setting up an abrasive blasting unit. We will go over these steps in this article and have you blasting like a professional in no time! First of all regular maintenance needs to be carried out on both air compressor and blast equipment as required. Make sure you check oil and water level of your air compressor before starting. The first step we take when setting up our mobile blast truck when onsite is connecting the blast hose to the sandblast pot, ensuring wire is placed through both safety holes as well as using whip checks correctly, this ensures we are protected in the case of a blow off. Our blast trucks are already plumbed up to the air compressor however if this is not the case your next step to take when setting up onsite shot blasting equipment is to connect your air delivery hose from air compressor to blast pot, inserting safety pins through both holes and always using a whip check...

Grit Blasting Concrete.

Concrete Shot blasting Sandblasting concrete also known as concrete shot blasting or concrete grit blasting is a common practice used for aggregate exposure, to achieve a slip rating on pavements , to create a anchor point for coatings to adhere to or to remove a coating. Concrete grit blasting can be performed with both traditional dry sandblasting and wet or dustless sandblasting technologies. When performing onsite concrete sandblasting works there are a few things that need to be done to ensure safe and smooth operations - Creating an appropriate exclusion zone prohibiting the entry of unauthorized personnel. - Protecting adjacent surfaces from over blast - Ensure all appropriate PPE is being worn - If working in enclosed areas ensure sufficient ventilation - If necessary wet blasting technologies and full contamination must be utilised - Never allow untrained personnel to operate grit blasting equipment...

Dustless Blasting/Wet Grit Blasting

Dustless Blasting/Wet Grit Blasting Dustless Blasting/Wet Grit Blasting is similar to traditional dry blasting methods with the addition of water supressing up to 92%of dust created.  Over the years, the technology has also acquired different names such as wet abrasive blasting, wet blasting, wet sandblasting, slurry blasting, vapour blasting, or dustless blasting. There are two different ways to perform dustless blasting/wet grit blasting. By using a traditional dry abrasive blasting pot and using a special water induction nozzle that connects to a hose and introduces water at the nozzle of the blast hose. By using a task specific wet blasting pot, a pressurized vessel that mixes the water and abrasive together in pot and propels it at the substrate using air. Both methods have a very similar end result. Benefits of Dustless Blasting/Wet... See More
