All the Airblast vacuum blasting machines are designed to provide closed-system blasting by making the blasthead a small “containment structure”. This speeds the job along, whether you are doing large-scale cleaning, or just spot blasting.
The removed coating and corrosion, plus the spent abrasives, are all deposited into a closed waste compartment.
The air is filtered before it’s exhausted. So the entire operation is virtually dustfree and safe for your crew and the environment.
The 1020 model is very well suited for cleaning small areas, and for weld preparation.
Rather than using a pressure blast vessel, the blast media is “lifted” from the machine by a vacuum generated at the blasthead, blasted onto the surface being cleaned and then vacuumed back into the unit for dust removal and reuse.
The recovery vacuum generator for this model is available in a pneumatic as well as an electric execution.
The electric powered model is used in situations where the available compressed air source is limited.
