WHITE PAPER REPORT
BLASTING MEDIA DUST DISPOSAL SOLUTION
Dust generated by a blasting process has always been considered“a necessary evil.” Or so it seems. It’s caused by the relatively low durability of the media being used to do the blasting work. Disposing of this waste product has always been an additional cost of doing business.
The dust causes safety issues while being collected…adds cost to the process when it is packed…and then adds additional cost when an outside vendor charges the customer to pay for its disposal.
Any way one evaluates blasting process dust disposal…it’s certainly an issue to be addressed.
A small but leading-edge business in Columbus, Ohio, USA, has developed the solution to this issue. Founded in 1970, the Transmet Corporation manufactures a Cast Zinc Blasting Shot alternative (called ZA4) that is revolutionizing the blasting industry.
When compared to traditional steel blasting media, the cast zinc shot is considerably more durable…and generates 33-66% less dust. Cast zinc shot is FAR more durable than more friable media such as aluminum oxide, glass bead, silica/sand or garnet resulting in 99-99.5% less dust generated.
And because zinc dust has value, local recyclers will usually pick it up at no charge…and occasionally will PAY to take it away. This, along with the better durability leading to a longer blasting life, makes choosing cast zinc shot an even easier choice.
