Fine atomized abrasives are the enemy of machinery and equipment as well as those responsible for keeping them operating. Micron-sized abrasive particles travel freely throughout a plant and can penetrate deep into every component, damaging shafts, cylinders, electronics, switches, sensors, bearings, mechanical seals and all rotating or moving parts. Thermal, electrical and corrosive properties of abrasives can also take a toll on electronics. Removing abrasives from equipment and machinery is extremely important to the longevity of each piece.
Uncontained dust from abrasive blasting can destroy valuable machinery like:
- Actuated valves
- Motors & engines
Sponge-Jet’s MicroContainment™ Technology allows for abrasive blasting directly adjacent to sensitive equipment – with a 95% reduction in dust; it also nearly eliminates the damaging ricochet commonly associated with ordinary abrasives.
