Sustainability-Based Characteristics of Abrasives in Blasting Industry
The abrasive blasting industry is identified as the most unsafe operation in terms of potential exposure to airborne crystalline silica. This is due to the free silica content in the common abrasives
DUST MONITORING EXPOSURE: ABRASIVE BLASTING PROCESS
Abrasive blasting is a process that is widely used to clean and remove the coating on a surface by using a variety of media. In Malaysia, blasting process subjected under the Occupational Safety and
Evaluation of parameters affecting adhesive strength of high build epoxy coatings on textured and plasma treated metallic substrates
Abstract Epoxy coating systems have been used throughout the years for protecting critical industrial assets. To ensure superior coating adhesion and longevity, abrasive blasting has been
Geometry optimization of dry ice blasting nozzle for the noise reduction using experimental validation
Dry ice blasting provides many advantages to surface cleaning in which the blasting medium sublimate during the surface impact will not leave a secondary contamination. However, on the negative side
