Typically, these dust collectors are hired by contractors who are blasting bridges, tanks or working in industrial facilities.

Unique Dust Collector Ordering Considerations

When you are looking to buy or rent an abrasive blasting dust collector, there are a few considerations that you want to think about. We’ll discuss a few of them here, but to really learn more, contact one of our team, they are experts in advising what equipment will get your job done the safest and the fastest.

Power Options – Electric or Diesel Powered?

Something must power that big fan that is creating all that ventilation and you have a choice if it is electric or diesel… Basically, if you have a good source of electric power on your jobsite, you will want to use an electric unit, they are cheaper to run.

Most blasting project sites don’t have the convenience of a good source of electric power, so therefore most of BlastOne’s rental fleet is diesel powered – you can use them anywhere…
Some Dust collectors are available with a hybrid Electric and Diesel motor which allows you to optimize your energy requirements per jobsite.

Diesel dust collector fuel consumption Rates

  • 12,000 cfm Dust Collector – 17.3 L/h @1800rpm
  • 20,000 cfm Dust Collector – 17.3 L/h @1800rpm
  • 27,000 cfm Dust Collector – 14.6 L/h @1800rpm
  • 40,000 cfm Dust Collector – 17.3 L/h @1800rpm

Air Supply requirements for the reverse pulse on the diesel dust collectors

Dust Collectors also need a source of compressed air for the reverse pulse system to work. The reverse pulse system sends a sudden wave of air down through the cartridges to dislodge any dust build up on the cartridges. This extends cartridge life and effective use.

  • 12,000 cfm Dust Collector – 50 cfm of air @ 100psi
  • 20,000 cfm Dust Collector – 60 cfm of air @ 100psi
  • 27,000 cfm Dust Collector – 80 cfm of air @ 100psi
  • 40,000 cfm Dust Collector – 80 cfm of air @ 100psi

Other Components you need to buy with a Dust Collector

When you hire a dust collector you are likely to also need to purchase the following.

Flexible Vacuum Hose

heavy duty ducting dust collectors buying guides

This is Heavy duty ducting that has a tough coated membrane wrapping around and strong reinforcing ribs for suction applications. This ducting compacts up or concertinas for easy of transport and storage. It is flexible enough to go around corners.

  • If your project is over 2 months in duration, you can hire the ducting, otherwise it is to be purchased.
  • For hazardous lead paint removal projects, the ducting must be purchased.
  • BlastOne Dust Collectors use 24” ducting.

UltraWeb Filters

Ultraweb Filtration dust collector Cartridge

Using good quality filters is very important when it comes to dust collectors. It is the filter that collects all the dust! BlastOne dust collectors are lined with Teflon and are built to extend the life of the filter.  Airflow enters the collection chamber in a unique way and is part of the reason that filters in BlastOne dust collectors have a life expectancy of up to 10 years. (Just ask the guys at the Sydney Harbor Bridge!)

UltraWeb Filters used in our dust collectors have a 99.95% efficiency ratio, which make them suitable for lead projects and hazardous dust containment, this is a Merv 10 rating.

  • For hazardous lead paint removal projects, the filters must be purchased and disposed of by the hirer.

  • 12,000 cfm Dust Collector – 20 filters
  • 20,000 cfm Dust Collector – 30 filters

Containment Sheeting

blastclad heady duty sheeting dust collector hire buying guide

Containment Sheeting is a vital component of a blasting jobsite ventilation system. Since the recent fires and disasters in Sydney CBD and the Grenfell towers, more and more asset owners are specifying that contractors use fire retardant containment. You also have options in the strength and longevity of the containment, the longer your project, the heavier duty you will want to purchase, the last thing you want is your containment coming apart part way through a lead paint removal project.

Filter Sheeting is available – this is breathable, but will retain dust and overspray.
