Abrasive Blast Recovering Unit Debuts


Airblast AFC has designed a portable abrasive recovery unit that the company says is capable of removing grit from the size of dust particles to debris as large as 2 inches.

The AbVac Grit Recovery Unit is available with flexible hoses, tools and extensions to suction up spilled abrasive quickly and efficiently, the company says. Recovered abrasive material can be collected into a bag for disposal or can be combined with an abrasive storage hopper to allow material to be fed back into the blast machine and reused.

The AbVac unit offers  25 and 40 horsepower power alternatives, a filter system for dry or moist material, automatic ATM filter cleaning system without compressed air, complete start-stop control system and various options of safety filters, according to Airblast AFC.

Filter cleaning is automatic and executed by a filter cleaning valve (ATM) located between the filter and the vacuum pump, the company says. It offers a compact design, retractable legs and forklift sleeves that allow it to be picked up and moved easily, according to the company.
