NEW! Riley AirTech shot blast media vacuum recovery system


Riley Surface World has launched the new AirTech vacuum media recovery system for manual shot blasting. It will be part of the company’s growing portfolio of new surface engineering products, complementing its huge stocks of used plant and machinery.

Pressure pot shot blasting results in a lot of media all over the floor. Naturally, you can sweep it up and put it in a bag, but when you’re using tonnes of media and it’s a large area over a great distance, then it helps to have an industrial size vacuum system. Couple this with a receptacle and you have the means of either re-using the media or disposing of it easily.

The new Riley AirTech vacuum recovery system consists of a sink tube that sits in the blast room floor, an abrasive knockout silo, an air operated vacuum generator and a twin cartridge reverse pulse filter unit. It has twice the filter area of ordinary vacuum recovery systems.

The system features

• Heavy duty steel frame and construction
• Twin oversize particle sieves
• Sacrificial exchangeable blast plate to prevent wear and tear to the hopper unit
• Hi efficiency pneumatic vacuum generation
• Automatic reverse pulse filter cartridge cleaning system
• Quiet operation
• Recovers media from up to 30 metres away

The new Riley AirTech vacuum recovery system should be used in conjunction with:
