New blast room
25 January 2013
Hodge Clemco has installed a selfcontained blast room with highperformance sound insulation, abrasive recovery and dust extraction systems for Bodycote Surface Technology, a company that undertakes production, refurbish
The blast room measures 5m long by 3.6m wide by 2.5m high and has double access doors at one end to allow large components to be accommodated. It is constructed from modular double-skinned panels with an acoustic lining, which reduces source noise by 30dBA.
Doors are interlocked to prevent people entering while blasting is in progress, and the walls are lined with rubber curtains to reduce abrasion.
Abrasive is recovered for re-use by means of a pneumatic suction filter unit linked to a sweep-in hopper in the floor of the blast room.
