Standard Systems Meet All Blasting Needs
Specify mechanical recovery with air- wash abrasive cleaner, or pneumatic recovery with cyclone separator. Available options let you tailor the pre- assembled room to your application.

For most recyclable media, from coarse ALOX to steel grit and shot, choose the Flat-Trak low-profile recovery floor coupled to a bucket elevator and air- wash abrasive cleaner. For fine glass bead and ALOX, or other light-weight media, the M-Section pneumatic recovery floor and cyclonic reclaimer work best.

The standard blast machine package includes a 6 cu. ft. blast machine, flexible Supa blast hose and silicon carbide nozzle, pneumatic remote control system, and an Apollo 60 respirator with CPF air filter. Plastic media, wheat starch, or other lightweight media require a special blast machine with steep cone and accessories to enhance media flow. Special accessories are available to protect components from aggressive media like ALOX.

Dust Collection Designed for Abrasive Blasting
The standard reverse pulse cartridge dust collector ventilates the blast enclosure and powers the media cleaner. Eight reinforced pleated-fiber cartridges provide a 2.1-to-1 filter-to-air ratio, trapping particles as small as 0.5 microns. The filters are automatically pulsed clean with compressed air.

Directing exhaust air back into your building reduces heating and cooling costs. Optional HEPA filters virtually eliminate microscopic dust emissions.

Outstanding Distributor Support
The world-wide network of Clemco Distributors has more than 50 years of experience planning, installing, and maintaining industrial blast equipment. Your authorized Distributor has the trained personnel and a ready inventory of standard parts to keep your blast room operating at peak efficiency.

Blast Room
Standard size - 14 ft long x 7 ft wide x 8 ft tall

(Other sizes by special order, but must meet federal DOT size limitations for transportation when assembled.)

Construction - 10-gauge steel walls, and 16-gauge steel ceiling and door panels.

Structural steel base supports recovery floor and standard 11/2° grating. Double doors swing open full width and full height for easy part loading. Large personnel door for ease of entry.

Safety Features
Apollo 60 respirator is NIOSH-approved and OSHA-certified to protect operator from lead dust concentrations up to 1000 times the permissible exposure limit. CPF filter removes moisture, oil and particles from breathing air.

Optional carbon monoxide monitor warns of dangerous CO levels.

Blast suit and gloves (included with the blast machine package) protect operator's hands and body from rebounding abrasive.

Remote control handle stops blasting automatically if operator drops blast hose.

Interlock system prevents blasting if any door is open. View ports allow monitoring of operator without interrupting blasting. Red emergency stop button on control panel shuts down entire system.

Media Recovery
Flat-Trak® - Low-profile, full-area mechanical recovery is simple to operate and maintain. Grating: standard 1 1/2-inch thick for 250 lb./sq. ft. loading.

M-Section - Full-area recovery with few moving parts to maintain. Optional rubber lining in transition elbow protects against wear. Grating: standard 1 1/2" thick for 2000 lb./sq. ft. loading. Optional M-Section design for plastic media.

Dust Collector
Pleated filter cartridges automatically pulse clean for efficiency and long life. Rigid ductwork connects blast room to dust collector. Flexible ductwork connects media separator to dust collector. Dust collector sized to suit application - 3400 cfm for air wash separator or 4000 cfm for pneumatic recovery and cyclone separator.

Media Cleaning
Reclaimer: For lightweight and fine media - 1200 cfm cyclone separator with rubber-lined inlet wear plate and 5-hp booster exhaust motor.

Air-wash abrasive cleaner: For heavy and coarse media - Two-stage cleaning with scalping drum and air- wash curtain. Includes bucket elevator.

Optional rubber-lined reclaimers, magnetic particle separators, dense particle separators, and multi-stage vibratory screen classification for applications that demand it.

Control Panel
Externally mounted panel with automatic start sequence and one-button shut down.
For Flat-Trak recovery floors, the panel allows precise control of recovery rates.

Standard wiring is 460 volts, 3-phase, 60 hertz, with transformer for step down voltage. Wiring and conduits between components must be supplied by customer to meet local electrical code.

Blast Machine Package
6 cubic foot capacity, 150-psi rated, ASME-coded pressure vessel with 1 1/4-inch piping and 1 1/2-inch moisture separator with automatic drain. Includes 25-foot Supa blast hose, pneumatic remote controls, 3/8-inch orifice silicon carbide venturi nozzle and all couplings, gaskets, and locking pins.

Installation and Startup
Pre-assembled blast room systems include complete plan drawings, air and electrical specifications, installation instructions and one-day start-up supervision for operational and maintenance training. Most customers, with advice from their Clemco distributor, have the resources and personnel needed to install the complete system. As an option, Clemco can provide turnkey installation.
