In areas of high relative humidity (RH) causes the freshly blasted steel surface to flash rust prior to the application of first layer of paint. Once the steel starts to rust, it will no longer meet required the quality standards and need re blasting. The level of RH is one of the factors which determines speed of corrosion. Higher RH level will accelerate corrosion rate, whereas lover RH level will extend the time taken for the part to start to rust. Hence, the process of lowering the level of RH in a closed blasting environment using a dehumidifier is widely practiced.
CLEANBLAST™ provides standard and customized dehumidifiers that have been trailer developed for Blasting and painting industry.
