BAKING SODA BLASTING
CABINETS AND SYSTEMS
In 1991, Ruemelin
pioneered the high-performance dry blast cabinet for baking soda blasting.
Baking soda blasting addresses solvent substitution, waste minimization,
and pollution prevention goals as well as overall environmental objectives
in a wide range of industries. In addition, because it is completely
water soluble, baking soda helps eliminate passageway blockage that is
common with blast media such as glass beads and plastic abrasive.
engineering properties of baking soda are another unique plus for many
applications, especially high-value component refurbishment. Under
proper operating conditions, baking soda can remove aerospace urethanes,
powder coat, e-coat, polymer coatings, adhesives, gasket material, greases,
oils, lubricants, and carbon residue.
Baking soda blasting
cabinets and systems manufactured by Ruemelin Manufacturing Co., Inc. incorporate
patented purge ventilation technology. Purge ventilation is the feature
that distinguishes Ruemelin units from conventional abrasive blast cabinets
and that provides exceptional, uninterrupted visibility for blasting at
any pressure without regard for part configuration. This feature
is of vital importance when blasting with a highly friable single-use media
such as baking soda. Operator visibility is not only a productivity
and ergonomic factor, but also enables critical ongoing inspection during
the blasting process.
