Dustless Vapor Blasting Equipment

High Productivity + Efficiency + Knowledgeable Support

Do You need a Great Selection of dustless vapor blasting equipment backed by Knowledgable Support to help you blast more efficiently?

Dustless vapor blasting is becoming increasingly popular as a result of health and safety regulations. The primary reason companies turn toward this system is to mediate the levels of dust on a jobsite. Less dust is safer for the workers, allows better visibility (which increases productivity) – and requires less containment, so as not to impact neighboring businesses and residential areas.

Traditional dry blasting utilizes the forceful impact of media on a substrate to both clean and create a surface profile. In doing so, the blasting media is pulverized and consequently emits dust as a result. Dustless vapor blasting equipment utilizes water as the means to suppress this dust.

Introducing the Mighty Mist Blaster™

Finally, a Mist Blaster that can do wet and dry blasting

The BlastOne Mist Blaster™ improves dustless vapor blasting performance by providing you with the ability to do dry blasting and vapor mist blasting with the same blast pot, and have an effective wash down cycle. This gives you the flexibility of a dry blasting or mist blasting ability as you need it coupled with the age old reliability you have come to expect from a standard blast machine.


The Mist Blaster™ is very versatile, allowing the operators ultimate flexibility in how much water they need for the task at hand.

  • Uses as low as 1 quart per minute of water when blasting
  • Can increase wash down speeds increasing by up to 10 times as fast
  • Can retro-fit to your existing blast pot

Key Benefits of the Mist Blaster™

Mist Blasters™ are designed to minimize airborne dust particles. Mist blasting uses a mixture of compressed air, abrasive and water to suppress dust in a method that uses less water than a water ring.


REDUCED AIRBORNE DUST

Mixing a mist of water with abrasive inside the blasting air stream reduces the airborne dust particles by up to 90%.


LESS CONTAINMENT

Due to lower dust, some jobs you can use no, or little, containment. On some elevated projects this could save you substantial money.
 

LESS ABRASIVE CONSUMPTION

Using the Mist Blaster™ equipment combined with ToughBlast Garnet, contractors can realize a 60-80% reduction in abrasive consumption compared to typical conventional abrasive with old technology equipment.


FLEXIBILITY

The BlastOne Mist Blaster™ can be used for dry blasting as well as mist blasting. This means that a contractor no longer needs to purchase two different types of equipment to meet all their blasting needs.

Low Water Consumption

 - Uses as little as 1 quart per minute, up to 1.2 as much as other brands.
 

Three Settings Available

1. Dry Blasting
2. Mist Blasting
3. Washdown
The Ultimate in choices, you can use the sames blast pot for all your projects
 

Washdown 10x Faster than other brands

A simple turn of the switch and you have 10x the water at the nozzle.
 

Can retrofit on to your existing pot

Saves you $15,000-$30,000 per machine vs other brands
 

Vaporizer

Ultimate control, introduces a fine mist of water to the air stream and allow huge volume washdown when in washdown mode.

Why use dustless vapour abrasive blasting?

Dustless vapor blasting systems are environmentally safe and cost effective surface cleaning tool. Effectively remove surface coatings, oxidation and graffiti from most surfaces without causing damage to the surface substrate. With a dustless vapour blasting system, blasting operators receive lower exposure to airborne dust and other containments that can effect health than conventional abrasive blasting techniques. The lower dust levels improved visibility while working providing a safer working area for the blasting operator.

Key benefits:

  • 92% lower airborne dust levels, lowering operator exposure to harmful dust particles
  • Simultaneously degrease & blast clean
  • Improved visibility of the blasting surface and surrounding work area
  • Minimalised impact to the environment by containing dust and containments to a smaller area
  • Lower cost, through the use of less abrasive during blasting
  • Less damage to the underlying substrate of the blasted surface

Three Most Popular Forms of Dustless Vapor Blasting:


Vapor Blasting - (aka “vapour” / wet abrasive blasting / liquid honing) – is essentially sand blasting with damp abrasive, typically garnet. Vapor blasting, while reducing the levels of dust on a jobsite, is effective for rust removal, blast cleaning, and surface preparation. It utilizes the least amount of water among the three options which is a benefit for 3 primary reasons:

1) Reduces the cost of water usage
2) Reduces the mess & clean-up costs resulting from water run-off
3) Reduces the quantity of rust inhibiting chemicals needed to stop flash rusting inherit in using water. The more water, the more chemicals needed.

Slurry Blasting - is a dated technology, less preferred than vapor because of the 3 reasons listed above. It is also useful for rust removal and surface preparation.

Soda Blasting - uses sodium bicarbonate (baking soda), compressed air, and water - and is the perfect choice for delicate jobs such as graffiti removal and historical restoration. The baking soda does not warp or damage softer metals such as aluminum, nor does it chemically react with the metal surfaces. It’s great for cleaning but not for establishing a viable surface profile.

How to select the unit for different types of applications

Selection criteria for determining the correct unit for the production job is determined by answering 4 key questions.
 

1. What is the underlying substrate?

When the substrate of the blasting surface is of a metallic nature then a surface preservative agent should be added to the water being used to reduce the possibility of surface rust (flash rust) occurring immediately after the surface has been blasted.

 

2. What are the finishing requirements after blasting?

Contact the coating manufacturer to ensure that the coating agent is compatibility with vapour blasting technology. The coating may react poorly to a surface that has not been prepared to the correct specifications resulting in a substandard finished product.

 

3. Are there any environmental concerns with the location of the blast?

If the coating you are removing or the surface has any contaimination like Lead, you will be restricted in your use of Wet Abrasive Blasters, you will be required to capture all the run off water and filter it for the lead particles. 

 

4. What is the overall size of the project?

Vapour blasting typically has a slower production rate per hour than conventional dry blasting. The slower production time on larger projects will require consideration as to the higher labour component. If it is a large project, you need to rememeber that most dustless vapor blasters only have a single outlet which means you will need multiple units onsite, adding to project equipment needs.
 

Other considerations

Graffiti is placed on quite a diverse range of surfaces from playgrounds (plastics), fences (metal) and walls (brick or concrete). To prevent the damage of the underlying surface structure, vapour blasting is a low impact solutions. With smaller and often unusual locations for the use of a mobile complete system is recommended.
Cleaning of machinery can require the removal of old paint coatings, surface rust and scaling. The surface may also contain contaminates like oils and greases that will also require cleaning from the surface before a new coating could be applied.
