Safety Considerations

When blasting aluminum extra safety precautions must be taken. The collector must be outside with explosion vents, fire retardant cartridges, and a fire suppression system. No ferrous blasting or ferrous materials can be mixed with a dust collector filtering aluminum dust. If any other flammable materials are being blasted, then consult factory for extra safety precautions.

When recirculating air, precautions should be taken to meet all OSHA and government guidelines. In many cases a safety monitoring after filter is required.

Extra caution should be taken when blasting with silica sand to protect workers from air born silica dust.
