1. Essential items that make up a blasting room The first concern when looking for a blasting room is to check if it meets the security standards. It seems like a prominent item, but it's essential to be aware. There are many competitors that, to have a more competitive price, produce equipment that does not meet mandatory standards and regulations to reduce costs. A machine that doesn't meet the criteria can bring several risks to the health and safety of operators. Besides that, a possible inspection can ban a company operating with equipment outside of norms.
A blasting room can have many optional items. Still, some essential ones are the working chamber, service door(s), lighting, horizontal transport of the abrasive, control panel, blasting machine, mugs, abrasive cleaner and exhaust system.
2. How the blasting room can be more effective
A blasting room can be incredibly more effective when it aims to optimize its components (mentioned above). Besides that, the construction needs to guarantee energy and abrasive savings, which are your most significant expenses.
Blasting rooms can be mobile when container types or require an extremely reduced foundation. The truth is that almost everything is adaptable to whatever is most profitable for the customer's needs. So be aware when making quotes if the manufacturer is willing to offer a blast room that meets your needs.

Better visibility due to the downward flow of air inside the blast room. This system is the one that best meets the occupational health conditions for the operator(s), as the particulates harmful to health are directed downwards.
The highly efficient abrasive cleaner reduces abrasive consumption and equipment wear.
Less need for foundations.
Dust collector with downward airflow minimizes energy consumption and provides longer life to the filter elements.
Abrasive pick-up across the entire floor, increasing productivity.
Abrasive conveyor with low maintenance cost.
