New Sandblasting System Provides Recycling Of Blasting Abrasive

Schmidt Manufacturing, Inc. of Houston, Texas, has introduced the Model BRC 4000, a unique new sandblasting system designed to blast, recover, and classify blasting abrasive.

The BRC 4000 is comprised of a blasting unit, a vacuum recovery system, and a classification system, all in a single package.

Although designed to pick up 2,000 pounds per/hour, the unit is capable of handling up to 4,000 pounds per/hour in specific applications.

Recovered material is classified into three separate chambers — reusable abrasive, trash, and dust.

The systems blasting unit is equipped with automatic remote controls, moisture separator, precise metering valve, and l^-inch piping for low pressure drop.

When the blasting unit is on, it automatically seals off from the classification chamber to allow simultaneous recovery, classification, and blasting.

Total storage capacity of the separator and blast pot is 12 cubic feet (6 cubic feet on the separator and 6 cubic feet on the blast pot). Units may be skid mounted or trailer mounted. A Model RC 4000 is also available, and consists of the vacuum recovery system and classification system without the blasting unit.
