Abrasive blasting dust collector

Dust Collection for Dry Blasting

Dry blasting is most often used to remove contaminants and irregularities from a metal surface to create a specific finish, prepare it for paints or coatings or enhance its performance characteristics. Dust collectors are the most effect way to capture and collect the particles of abrasive media and contaminate that become airborne during the blasting process.

The loading conditions of the dust collector are different for each type of dry blasting – direct pressure, blast wheel or induction. Camfil APC dust collection experts will recommend the size and configuration that is best for each application including hood position, inlet type, and filter cartridges. Special accommodations are required if the blasted material is explosive, flammable, corrosive or toxic. Camfil experts ensure that dust collectors meet all OSHA requirements and NFPA standards.

Gold Series X Flo


The modular Gold Series X-Flo (GSX) dust collector was engineered to solve tough dust problems with a minimal footprint. It captures dangerous airborne metal dusts before they can be inhaled by operators or build up on shop surfaces. Camfil experts will work with you to understand your specific application requirements. Individual modules accommodate airflows up to 6,000 CFM each, providing a near-limitless variety of configurations that can be delivered in days instead of weeks. All GSX collectors feature heavy-duty carbon steel construction and thermal cured powder coatings for unparalleled strength and durability.
