Dustless Blasting

What Is Dustless Blasting?

Enviroprep does run the Dustless Blasting setup

Dustless blasting is known as a wet abrasive blasting or vapour blasting. They are exactly the same thing however there is a blast pot that was created by an American company called MMLJ who produce and manufacture the Dustless Blaster which is where the word derived. Many people interpret the dustless blasting process as blasting with no dust. That is incorrect. There is dust however there is less dust then there would be dry blasting.

The Dustless Blaster is a wet abrasive blast pot that combines water, air and abrasive together to perform the blasting process. There are a number of other blast pots on the market that are similar such as Geoblast, Ecoquip, Farrow and more.

MMLJ (Manufacturing Marketing Logistics Juxtaposition) are the manufacturers of the versatile dustless blaster. MMLJ have been manufacturing since 1941 in Houston,Texas, United States.

However when we ask what is dustless blasting we need to understand that there is no such thing as ‘dustless blasting‘ or dust free blasting. There is research that has shown that the most effective vapour blasting system suppresses no more than 92% of dust produced by dry blasting.

There are a number of different terminologies used when referring to wet blasting. They are:

Dustless blasting is a term used to cleverly trick the customer into thinking that this process is dust-free however any wet blasting process does leave some sort of a mess. Even though the wet blasting process may not create plumes of dust as the traditional sandblasting method does it leaves a mess on the ground from the water that encapsulates the abrasive media.

This wet blasting process causes the dust that would initially be suspended in the air if using the sandblasting process to fall to the ground. By laying out groundsheets we can easily clean up most of the mess that is left behind. Gardens can be hosed down as the abrasive media that is used is completely eco-friendly however its the surface substrate profile that is the concern as that can contaminate waterways and land.

Enviroprep Media Blasting is a mobile abrasive blasting company that covers Brisbane to Gympie and as far inland as Kingaroy. We have a very small setup that enables us to get around quickly and get into places other blasters can’t reach.

Dustless Blasting: Revolutionising Surface Preparation

When it comes to surface preparation, dustless blasting has emerged as a game-changer in the industry. This innovative technique combines the power of traditional media blasting with advanced water suppression technology, resulting in a highly effective and eco-friendly solution. Dustless blasting not only delivers exceptional results but also addresses the common challenges associated with traditional blasting methods, such as excessive dust, environmental concerns, and operator safety.

Unlike conventional dry blasting, dustless blasting utilises a slurry of water, abrasive media, and a rust inhibitor to remove paint, rust, and other surface coatings. By introducing water into the process, the abrasive particles are encapsulated, effectively eliminating the generation of harmful dust particles. This makes dustless blasting a cleaner and safer option, both for the environment and the operators involved in the surface restoration process.

One of the key advantages of dustless blasting is it’s versatility. It can be used on a wide range of surfaces, including metal, wood, concrete, and more. Whether you’re restoring a classic car, revitalising an industrial structure, or preparing surfaces for repainting, dustless blasting offers a comprehensive solution.

In addition to its effectiveness and versatility, dustless blasting also stands out for its efficiency. The combination of abrasive media and water enhances the blasting power, allowing for quicker removal of coatings and reducing the overall time required for surface preparation. Furthermore, the slurry created during the process can be easily contained and disposed of, minimising the impact on the surrounding environment.
