New SoloBlast environmentally friendly sandblasting machines address silica dust pollution problems associated with traditional designs.
Models are simpler to use. They reduce dust associated with sandblasting by over 90%, use two-thirds less sand, and are one-user operated. The manufacturer has filed for patent protection on several SoloBlast features.
It declares "the proposed reduction of allowable silica dust limits issued by OSHA on Sept. 5 create a demand for sandblasting methods that reduce levels of dust while maintaining productivity associated with traditional sandblasting."
