Protecting Workers From The Hazards of Abrasive Blasting Materials

Worker health and plant safety issues are dramatically improved when Sponge-Jet technology is used for surface preparation. Fugitive emissions (TSP and PM-10) can be reduced as much as 97% over traditional abrasive blasting, drastically reducing reportable environmental emissions. Sponge Media particles capture the contaminants removed from the surface – reducing worker exposure to hazardous airborne dust normally caused during abrasive blasting. Injuries caused by abrasive ricochet are eliminated. Sponge Media is also recycled which can reduce waste disposal up to 96%.

The industry term “low dust blasting” is commonly being replaced by “dustless blasting.” Review the US Environmental Protection Agency for complete test results on abrasive emission factors in file AP-42 and its independent companion update “Emission Factor Documentation for AP-42 Section 13.2.6

  • What is Nuclear Decommissioning?

    Nuclear decommissioning is the process of permanently shutting down the operations of a nuclear power plant. This process must be done safely, and is strictly regulated by government agencies. For example, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (NRC) is the U.S. agency responsible for making and enforcing the rules, regulations, and procedures that govern nuclear power plant decommissioning. In the United Kingdom, it is the Office of Nuclear Regulation that oversees, regulates and monitors nuclear decommissioning.

  • How Sponge Media Is Being Used in Rebuild Facilities

    Many advanced Certified Rebuild Centers (CRCs) and Heavy Equipment Refurbishment facilities are turning away from regular abrasive blasting and/or high pressure washing during their re-manufacturing process. Increasingly, these centers are focusing on cleaning the equipment using Sponge-Jet blasting prior to disassembly.
