Dustless Blasting is a water-based blasting technique that uses dustless blast pots. It was developed as a result of increasing constraints in health and safety, removing grease, salt and oil, and eliminating sulphates, chlorides, nitrates and phosphates when paired with an abrasive.
The dustless blasting technique involves combining water with an abrasive, such as sand or glass, in a tank. This, of course, depends on the material that requires blasting and the depth at which the material must be blasted, such as with concrete sandblasting. In this way, the blasting method removes up to 95% of dust particles; making it the most economic-friendly dust control system.
Using high pressure, the water together with the abrasive is then blasted against the surface that requires restoration and any debris falls to the ground. This process, therefore, eliminates all toxic airborne particles, as well as uses less material for cleaning.
