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!
