Portable Blast & Recovery Systems that reduce media costs by recycling durable abrasives are available. Used to strip, clean and surface profile larger workpieces, these machines are equipped with a pressure air-blast system, a 10-hp pressure blower, a recovery hopper, a dust collector and a tunable media reclaimer. By capturing 99% of particles one micron in size or larger, the system's dust collector permits conveying air to be recirculated into the workplace, thereby reducing HVAC costs. In addition, the reclaimer, protected by an Ultrawear lining, is designed to assure high-quality results by recycling only the correct-size media. These units recover media in sizes up to A-12 aluminum oxide and G-25 steel grit at rates up to 70 lbs per min.
