Reducing the Risk of Wheel Blasting Dust Exposure
Wheel blasting has been around for nearly 100 years, and it remains a widely used process. Efficient and effective, wheel blasting is fundamentally the same as it was in the beginning—pairing a high-speed motor with abrasive materials. There’s no reason to think a technology this simple and great won’t be around for a long time.
Today’s wheel blasting operations can focus on optimizing abrasive materials, delivering the best finishes, and protecting workers. One of the key challenges of wheel blasting is controlling the dusts that come off the process. Some of the dusts found in these operations are regulated by specific standards, due to the toxic substances involved. Understanding what is in your air is a crucial step in protecting your workers and complying with regulations.
