ISTblast MSW1200 Pneumatic Floor Recovery System is a very affordable solution, limited only in terms of recovery hopper length (max. 10 feet) and type of abrasive used. Abrasive residues must be swept or shoveled into a floor hopper in order to be recovered by the system.
This recovery system can convey lightweight abrasives such as glass beads, aluminum oxide of small mesh size, and GMA Garnet (heavy media like steel grit or steel shot cannot be vacuumed). With media recovery capacity of approximately 1,500 lbs per hour, this system offers increased productivity and minimal room cleaning after blasting operations at a very affordable cost.
Dust collector associated with this system is DCM230.
HOW IT WORKS
ISTblast offers various types of recovery floors that can be adapted to your production space. Either for surface or excavated installation, dimensions can vary from 4 feet in length for compact installations to maximum 10 feet for high output industrial facilities.
Shallow and space saving over-floor design is easy to install and requires limited maintenance. 17” floor excavation is sufficient for existing floors. System can also be installed on concrete floor or any other permanent or temporary floor.
We manufacture a complete line of Recovery Systems to accommodate sandblasting facility constraints, and these systems are compatible with our equipment, other manufacturers’ equipment, and even with self-made facilities. Good abrasive-recovery systems respect the 3R fundamentals: Recover, Recycle, Reuse.
Recycling abrasives brings substantial savings in abrasive consumption while protecting the environment from harmful sandblast dust. Because of its fragile molecular structure, non-recyclable media deteriorates quickly while generating harmful residual dust and substantially reducing operator visibility.
Although cost of GMA Garnet is about 3.5 times higher than non-recyclable media, GMA Garnet abrasives can be recycled and reused up to 5 times compared to only once with standard media. Not only does it make sense environmentally – it is 2X more economical to recycle your abrasive.
