Keeping your workers safe and your business OSHA compliant.
Owning a dustless blasting machine makes it easy to conform with OSHA standards because OSHA recommends the wet abrasive blasting method over traditional sandblasting. The main reason OSHA approves the dustless sandblasting process is because water encapsulates the abrasive and the coating that is being removed ultimately preventing either of them from becoming an air borne hazard that could be inhaled. Moreover, using an eco-friendly and harmless abrasive such as 40/70 recycled crushed glass, which contains no crystalline silica like that of traditional blasting sand. This as well as significant dust reduction and increased visibility help protect your employees and reduce accidents.

Our design actually pulls the media and water from the bottom of the pot and then is pushed out the top. Gravity fed systems are prone to failure due to having multiple valves and wear parts, and needing intricate, proprietary parts that have to be shipped from the manufacturer directly. Our dustless sandblasting system is simple. There are virtually no moving parts that could fail, and you can change all of the valves on the fly.
