Thermac has developed the UK’s first unit that combines both precision dustless shot blasting equipment and a breathing air compressor into a single road-towable, enclosed trailer.
This unique all-in-one solution is ideal for small to medium-sized asbestos removal projects. It removes the need to have multiple pieces of equipment delivered to site, saving on time, delivery costs and the space required on-site.
The trailer is supplied ready-to-use, with all of the individual specialist components being pre-connected.
This unit provides a continuous and reliable source of clean, breathable air to the EN12021 standard for up to four operatives. It also incorporates a detachable air control panel which can be located up to 25m away from the trailer. This allows it to be conveniently positioned just outside of the work zone and provide full entry control.
An emergency air supply cylinder and built-in alarm system is also included. This automatically activates in the unlikely event of the main air supply failing. This guarantees that operatives have adequate air to be able to exit the working area safely.
The trailer has been specifically designed around the equipment components with large panels and doors to ensure that each item can be easily accessed for efficient operation and maintenance. There is also plenty of storage space to carry the required airlines, Ras masks and harnesses for four operatives.
The precision dustless blaster is a 120 litre system with a hose length that can be extended up to 100m. The blasting hose is conveniently stored on a reel adjacent to the blasting unit.
A bulk head has also been created to separate the air compressor from the blasting section to minimise abrasive blast media contaminate (such as grit, glass or garnet) from entering the air unit.
The Blast & Breathe combined unit can be hired across the UK and full user training (with certification) can be provided either on site or at any Thermac depot.
