Level 2 Abrasive Recycle System

Clemco M-Section Recycling System

Higher performing abrasives allows owners to utilize recycling methods.

New - We now carry Clemco Blasting Equipment

With modest levels of investment, a blast shop can recycle suitable abrasive media 1 to 5 times.

A larger up front investment will allow a continuous recycling operation. This gives the advantage of THE lowest cost per square foot for any given high performance blast abrasive.

We have broken down recycling solutions into three levels:

Level 1 Basic Recycling - Approximately $1000 to $5000 investment:

  • Offers 1 to 3 reuses of the spent abrasive
  • Requires manual spent abrasive pickup (no automation) and conveyance to the hopper or blast pot
  • Includes screening to remove only large debris
  • No screening for fines
  • Will need to check profile height of recycled abrasive blast for approval
  • Estimated to save 1 ton of high performance abrasive for every 3 to 5 tons purchased

Level 2 Intermediate Recycling  - Approximately $10K to $25K investment:

  • Offers 2 to 5 reuses of the spent abrasive
  • Requires Sweep-In system or Bobcat spent abrasive pickup
  • Includes pneumatic or mechanical conveyance of spent abrasive to hopper or blast pot
  • Large debris is removed
  • Fines are removed
  • Number of reuses are dependent on specific abrasive media and blast impact force
  • Recycled abrasive can be mixed with virgin abrasive
  • Profile height of working mix abrasive needs approval
  • Estimated to save 1 ton of high performance abrasive for every 2 to 4 tons purchased

Level 3 Closed Loop Recycling - Approximately $25K or more investment:

  • Turns will be dependent upon specific abrasives selected for job
  • Automated spent abrasive pickup system
  • Includes pneumatic or mechanical conveyance of spent abrasive to hopper or blast pot
  • Large debris is removed
  • Fines are removed
  • Number of reuses are dependent on specific abrasive media and blast impact force
  • Recycled abrasive can be mixed with virgin abrasive
  • Profile height of working mix abrasive needs approval
  • Estimated to save 1 ton of high performance abrasive for every 1 to 3 tons purchased
