Optimize Suction to Maximize the Effectiveness of Recovery Blasting Machines

Reading time: 2 minutes

At the heart of recovery blasting machines lies an element that plays a crucial role in maximizing operational efficiency: the suction system. This device, separate from the pressure tank, not only helps maintain a safe and clean working environment but also performs the essential function of separating dust from the abrasive used, ensuring a more efficient and sustainable blasting cycle.

Dust Separation from Abrasive

The suction system stands out for its ability to isolate the dust generated during the blasting process from the abrasive itself. This separation capability is essential for maintaining the abrasive in an optimal state for reuse, thereby reducing costs associated with purchasing new material. Furthermore, dust separation helps maintain a cleaner and safer working environment, eliminating the risk of contamination and the dispersion of harmful substances into the air.

Types of Suction Systems

There are various types of suction systems used in recovery blasting machines, each with specific characteristics and functionalities.

Among the most common are:

  • Semi-Automatic Cleaning System:

Next to the blasting unit, there is a single-phase motor with a conical base cartridge filter. An innovative cartridge shaking system, utilizing vibration, allows the accumulated dust in the filter to be discharged into a designated container.

  • Self-Cleaning System:

This system features cyclical cleaning that blows against the filter cartridges, ensuring thorough cleaning.

  • Single-Phase Industrial Vacuum:

Equipped with an automatic cleaning system, it operates by vibrating on the filter cartridges for effective cleaning. The cyclone placed on top of the sandblaster allows for the recycling of abrasive material, while the vacuum directs waste materials into a wheeled container for easy disposal.

  • Internet-Connected Central Vacuum System: 

This innovative central vacuum system, equipped with an intuitive touchscreen, provides easy access to functions and delivers a status report of the suction unit. Immediate alarms notify of any anomalies, ensuring continuous efficiency. The cyclone integrated into the sandblaster separates dust and recycles the abrasive.

  • Continuous Bag Industrial Vacuum Cleaner:  

This recovery system allows the operator to avoid contact with dust and waste during blasting and disposal.

The suction unit alongside the blasting unit ensures the recovery of both the abrasive and the generated dust. The separation of dust from the abrasive improves the quality of blasting and prolongs the life of the abrasive, offering benefits such as lower maintenance costs, faster blasting speeds, and increased operator safety.

Regardless of the type of suction system used, it is essential to choose a solution capable of meeting the specific requirements of the application and ensuring optimal efficiency of the recovery blasting process.

In conclusion, the suction system represents an indispensable element in recovery blasting machines, enabling efficient separation of dust from the abrasive used and ensuring a more sustainable and efficient blasting cycle. Choosing the most suitable suction system for your needs is essential to maximize operational benefits and reduce costs associated with managing the sandblasting process.
