Tube Processing Center

Q. What can the tube processing center do?

A. This plasma processing machine can process 21 foot stock lengths and work round material from 5/8" diameter tube to 6" Schedule 40 pipe into weld ready components. Using Piecemaker Software; programming can be done at the machine or in the office with network connectivity. This makes for quick work when fabricating handrails.


Dustless Blaster

Q. What is a dustless blaster?

A. The Dustless Blaster works by mixing water and abrasive inside the blast tank. By introducing water, we're drastically increasing mass and energy that the machine is putting out while eliminating the dust. Imagine throwing a handful of dry sand versus a handful of wet sand; which one is going to have a more significant impact on the target? Not only will the wet sand hit the target harder, but it won't disintegrate and become a cloud of dust like the dry sand will. This is the very simple principle behind Dustless Blasting.

Even better, containment is made easier by this process. When you blast paint, rust, or etc. off with the Dustless Blaster, it mixes with water and falls to the ground making it easier to contain and clean up when the job is done. Simple and efficient.


Q. What are the advantages of dustless blasting over the old, outdated blasting method?

A. Minimal Dust: The abrasive gets trapped in water and grounded, eliminating the dust. Lower Abrasive Consumption: The dustless blaster uses less media to do more work. Abrasive Flexibiity: The dustless blaster can use almost any abrasive that sinks in water.
