Some of the dangers attributed to the job are:

Abrasive Dust & Epoxy Fumes

the-blaster-safety
  • When inhaled, the abrasive media that is used, can cause severe lung damage including silicosis and eventually cancer.
  • The dust fills the inside of the water tank, obscuring vision and creating a very slick work environment. Injury from falling is all to common.
  • Fumes from the epoxy are toxic and should never be inhaled.

Sound

  • Abrasive blasting inside a water tank can produce up to 130 Decibels or more all day long
  • The best blasting mask is good for up to 120 Decibels of sound for 5 hours per day.

Other Dangers

  • Most towers are between 120-160 ft high, with the interior of the tanks being 40-50 ft deep. Accessible by ladders and manlifts.
  • Slipping and falling from these heights results in injury and death.
  • All materials must be hoisted up on cables or by the worker on a ladder or manlift.
  • The merry-go-round systems and modular platforms used to get around in the tank are shaky and difficult to walk on.
  • It’s pitch black inside the tank while blasting.
  • Mask gets covered in dust and grime further obscuring vision.

The Blaster is the Solution for You

Nobody in the Water Tank!

the-blaster-safety
  • Higher standards of safety in an easier to operate system.
  • Best and safest solution is to get the person out of the tank.
  • After the initial setup of The Blaster, the worker leaves the tank and operates the device from the command center outside.
  • See everything your doing from the safety of the command center on the ground. View the whole job on a monitor as it is recorded by the 7 high definition cameras and high powered lights mounted on The Blaster.
  • No more dealing with deafening sounds, black-out conditions, and suffocating dust and fumes.

Our Mobile Crane Hoists Itself!

  • Our patent-pending Mobile San-Crane lifts itself to the top of the tower, pulling the pieces of The Blaster up one by one after, and lowering them into the tank to be assembled.
  • Once assembled, the operator leaves the tank and only returns to reposition the Blaster until the job is completed.
  • When the job is completed the crane then lowers the pieces one by one and safely lowers itself to complete the job.
