How CLEARBLAST Works
The Many Advantages of Wet Abrasive Blasters
The perfect combination of 3 Elements
Water is supplied from an on-board water tank or from an external source (pending preference and model). The water, is then added along with the abrasive in step two, suspending each abrasive particle in a “dust suppressing” bubble. During the blasting process this, first and foremost greatly reduces the dispersal of airborne particles (dust) created from the abrasive while also greatly reducing the volume of abrasive used per hour. Now, don’t fret over the wet! Water consumption in CLEARBLAST equipment is very low using just about 1/2 pint per minute or 3-4 gallons per hour!
Abrasive, or a gentle granular cleaning agent like wet grade soda, is added along with the water inside the pressure pot. The use of granular abrasive makes the removal of industrial coatings and surface corrosion a breeze acting little chisels, getting into the nooks and crannies of a surface that are otherwise nearly impossible to remove with other less-conventional methods. CLEARBLAST technology, though not the first by any means to use abrasive in such a way, does however bring outstanding efficiency, allowing for less abrasive consumption, better control of removal, and added user and environmental safety.
Air is the vehicle, transporting the wet abrasive mixture sending it “blasting” towards the surface. With CLEARBLAST, this air is controlled separately of the water and abrasive mixture, allowing the user to finely control the level of performance desired. Air is supplied via an external air compressor either on-site or on-board one of our all-in-one trailer models. The overall size or volume of compressor needed is generally determined by the level of performance desired, or the application at hand. In all, the “blast pressure” exiting our blasters can range from 30 psi – 130 psi. Combined with the correct abrasive, performance is effectively matched to the desired result, virtually removing any coating or grime, from any surface, any time, anywhere. MORE BELOW!
Our Wet Blasters Are More Efficient
Less Abrasive, Less Water = More. Less material cost, less containment and minimized cleanup means more time working and less time fiddling. Less abrasive means less to store, load and dispose of at the end of a job giving you a bigger return per job. Less water means less mess, less rust inhibitor (when applicable) and less demand onsite. Keep your bottom line in mind when it comes to your business. Getting the “cheapest” blaster on the market isn’t always going to save you money. Think about the long haul. CLEARBLAST is built for your business. To last, to save and to help you tackle a large quantity of applications keeping you and your operation in the black!
WHY OUR WET BLASTERS ARE THE BEST
Experience. Innovation. It’s our motto for a reason. We’ve earned it by developing our technology for over a decade now. Helping customers and listening to clients and end-users. We developed our patented design through trial and error, through field experience and through working directly with you, the customer. By making it our mission not the be like the rest. Our systems are the simplest to operate, hands down. CLEARBLAST produces some of the most efficient blasters on the market, using 100s of pounds less abrasive and tens of gallons less water per hour than our competition. We’ve studied. We’ve learned. We’ve listened to your needs. The result is CLEARBLAST.
Safest and Greenest Option
CLEARBLAST Wet Abrasive Blasters eliminate more than 90% of airborne dust during the blasting cycle making it safer for the user and their surroundings. Our blasters greatly reduce abrasive embedment in the substrate, while also producing a consistent profile allowing for coatings to go further in the process with less. Our blasters consume up to 80% less media as dry blasters, and half as much abrasive and a quarter of the amount of water as that of “tweaked” dustless systems. Our simple controls are not just “easy” they’re safer. Clear layout of components and functions make CLEARBLAST systems safer for new and distracted workers while on the job site, minimizing work related injuries. We continue to strive to be the safer and environmentally conscience blasting solution, everyday.
