Dustless Blasting

What is dustless blasting?
The Dustless Blaster works by mixing water and abrasive inside the blast tank. By introducing water we're drastically increasing mass and energy the machine is putting out, while eliminating dust. Imagine throwing a handful of dry sand, versus throwing a handful of wet sand; which one is going to have a more significant impact on the target? Not only will the wet sand hit the target harder, but it won't disintegrate and become a cloud of dust like the dry sand will. This is the very simple principle behind Dustless Blasting.


Warping occurs when the metal heats up due to friction from dry abrasive. The Dustless Blaster will not cause warping, because friction and heat are reduced by the water. In fact the temperature of the metal being blasted usually comes down about 10 degrees from ambient.


We use a rust inhibitor called HoldTight 102 to prevent flash rusting for up to 72 hours. This extremely effective rust inhibitor is added to the blast water to prevent flash rust during blasting, and then used to rinse after blasting is complete.
