24" JET FAN

SKU: 60850094

Using a jet fan, also known as an air mover, during sandblasting operations is necessary to maintain a safe and efficient working environment. Sandblasting, by its nature, generates a significant amount of dust, abrasive particles, and potentially toxic fumes, depending on the materials being blasted. A jet fan plays a crucial role in managing these environmental factors.

USAGE OF THE JET FAN

Ventilation & Air Circulation: One of the primary roles of a jet fan in sandblasting operations is to provide adequate ventilation. By circulating air, the fan helps to disperse and remove airborne particles and fumes from the work area. This is particularly important in enclosed or confined spaces where the lack of natural airflow can lead to the accumulation of hazardous substances.

Health & Safety: Removing dust and fumes is crucial for the health and safety of workers. Inhaling dust particles and toxic fumes can lead to serious respiratory and other health problems. By ensuring effective air circulation, jet fans help in reducing these health risks.

Improving Visibility: In sandblasting operations, the cloud of dust and particles can significantly reduce visibility, which is a safety hazard and can affect the quality of the work. By using a jet fan to clear the air, visibility is improved, allowing operators to work more effectively and safely.

Dust Control: Jet fans help control the spread of dust outside the blasting area. This is important for keeping the surrounding environment clean and preventing contamination of other areas, which could be critical in certain industrial settings.

Heat & Humidity Management: Sandblasting can generate heat, and humidity can also increase in confined spaces. A jet fan helps regulate the temperature and reduce humidity, creating a more comfortable and manageable working environment.

Explosion Risk Reduction: In scenarios where flammable materials are present, the build-up of dust and fumes can pose a risk of explosion. Proper ventilation using jet fans significantly reduces this risk by dispersing potentially explosive concentrations of particles and gases.

Types and Placement: Jet fans come in various sizes and capacities, and their placement is strategically planned based on the size and layout of the sandblasting area. Multiple fans might be necessary for larger or more complex spaces to ensure effective air movement.
