Capture Dust From All Types of Blasting:
Special considerations for:
Farr Gold Series® Dust Collectors on Blasting Applications
Blasting is a very diverse market made up of wheel blasters, air blasters, and cabinet blasters. The blasting media also varies widely from sand, steel, plastic, slag and various shot. This section focuses on wheel blasting and large blast rooms. Camfil APC has over 100 Farr Gold Series on these applications and numerous Tenkays.
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.
