Protect what’s important – industrial surfaces, environment and worker health and safety.
Sponge-Jet’s clean, dry, low dust, reusable technology can achieve results while protecting what's important – the environment, your assets, your workers and the bottom line. Sponge-Jet systems clean, selectively strip paint (or remove contaminants) and achieve profiles from 0 to 100+ microns (4+ mils).
The heart of the Sponge-Jet System is its Sponge Media. This patented technology combines the containment capability of urethane sponge and the cleaning and cutting power of conventional abrasives. The pliant nature of Sponge Media abrasives allow its particles to flatten on impact, exposing the abrasive. After leaving the surface, the media expands, creating a vacuum – entrapping most of what would normally have become airborne contaminants. This is referred to as Sponge Media’s MicroContainmentTM. Sponge Media abrasives are available in 20 types for any application. All provide dry, low dust, low rebound blasting.
Sponge-Jet Feed Units propel Sponge Media abrasives to the surface. A centralized panel provides adjustment of blast pressure and media feed rate allowing for precise control.
Sponge-Jet Recyclers classify and clean Sponge Media abrasive for reuse. Blasted media is collected and processed through an electrically or pneumatically powered classifier – separating reusable Sponge Media abrasives from oversized debris, and fine waste (spent media and contaminants).
Up to 95% of Sponge Media is recycled for reuse. Sponge Media (shown 3X actual size) traps contaminants upon impact
