Shot Blasting

The abrasive material sprayed onto the metal as well as the blasted metal itself can generate emissions of potentially toxic and hazardous for health dust. Removing them from the indoor atmosphere is required to maintain a safe production environment and to reduce outdoor contaminant emissions.


Defining the most suitable dust collector

The characteristics of the abrasive technique used, manual or automated, play a key role on the definition of the final configuration of the dust collection solution.

For big materials, automatic shotblasting machines use a turbine that typically generates large dust concentrations. In this case, sparks can be created and therefore spark protection systems or pre-separators in the dust collectors are required. NFPA compliant will also be required to comply with the regulation when handling explosive dust.

In the case of small pieces of material, however, manual shotblasting using compressed air can be applied. There is no explosion risk, so the dust collector does not need specific explosive prevention certification.
