What Is Dustless Blasting?

The Future of Surface Preparation

Southern Dustless Blasting

Dustless Blasting 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.

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

We use a specially formulated rust inhibitor to prevent flash rust 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.

Our machines are 100% Eco Friendly. Dustless Blasting can be used to etch concrete without using acids! Chemical etching is an environmental nightmare.
