BRECO CUSTOM BUILT BLAST ROOMS & DUST COLLECTORS
Wall and roof panels are 10 gauge steel cut by a CNC plasma table. This method ensures the accuracy of all dimensions and hole alignment. Aluminum seam caps are installed at each panel junction. Breco blast rooms are equipped with fluorescent light fixtures. Wall lights are protected in 10 gauge housings behind ¼” thick lexan. Silicone is provided as sealant for all light fixtures.Entry/exit work doors are fabricated with heavy wall tubing and double lined with 10 gauge skins. All door exterior edges are sealed with heavy duty rubber. Rubber roll up doors can be requested. Doors are one solid sheet of ¼” SBR curtain, allowing for smooth operation. Doors come with reversing edge and thru beam photo switch safety features.
Our dust collectors are manufactured of 3/16” plate. We use the most common size of filters so most brands/types fit our systems. Whether catching blast dust or torch table fumes, we have a collector for you. We can provide after filters for dust collectors installed indoors. HEPA rated filters are used to ensure clean air is returned into your facility.
Pre-Assembled Blast Room
As the name says, these blast rooms arrive at your site ready to install. Connect the components and add power and air. Because the room must ship via truck, room dimensions are limited to 14 feet by 7 feet by 8 feet tall. The room includes full area recovery – pneumatic or mechanical – as well as lights, control panel, one full-width, full-height door, and a separate personnel door. You can select the blast machine package (one or more operators), dust collection (recovery only or full room), media reclamation system (air wash or cyclonic), blast suit and respirator, and any special parts-handling equipment you need.

Clemco Sweep-In Recovery Systems
Clemco’s sweep-in media recovery systems, with high-efficiency dust collection, offer an economical alternative to full-area recovery. Install a sweep-in system in your new or existing blast facility and switch to recyclable abrasives – the cost saving and increased productivity can pay for the system in a few months.
Belt Conveyor Recovery Systems
An abrasive blast facility reduces blasting costs and environmental contamination by bringing blasting indoors, making possible the use of recyclable abrasives. To make the most of recyclable abrasive, an efficient abrasive recovery system automates the media recovery and cleaning processes. The Clemco Belt Conveyor Recovery System combines simple, reliable, technology with high quality components for a system that is rugged, durable, and economical. The Clemco BCR system is built in custom lengths to suit existing or new blast rooms. It is engineered to suit rooms of all sizes. A standard complete system comprises recovery hoppers, floor grating, a drum motor for each belt run, a bucket elevator, and an air-wash abrasive cleaner.
Engineered to be Simple
The Clemco BCR system features multiple floor collection hoppers installed in a trench in the blast room floor. Partial-area systems can be configured in a single run, in H-, L-, or U-patterns or whatever layout suits the appliction. Floor gratings, flush with the blast room floor, cover the hoppers. Abrasive falls through the grating, into the hoppers, through a metering tube, falling on the 12-inch wide belt below. The distance between the hopper metering tube and the conveyor belt is set for the optimal media flow-rate which prevents belt overload.
Engineered to be Reliable
A 2-HP drum motor drives each belt, conveying material to the bucket elevator for transfer to the abrasive cleaner. Angled rollers beneath the belt form a V-shape support to contain the abrasive on the belt. Abrasive drops off the belt into the bucket elevator hopper. Sturdy buckets raise the abrasive to the air-wash cleaner, where the abrasive is separated from dust and debris. Debris falls into a waste container, dust is drawn into the dust collector, and reusable, clean abrasive falls into a hopper atop the blast machine.
Engineered to be Durable
Collection hoppers are constructed of rugged 10-gauge steel making them ideal for wear resistance and long life. For each run of hoppers, a heavy-duty, multi-ply, endless belt is powered by an electric drum motor. The belt is fabricated to resist wear. The durable bucket elevator assembly has a reinforced PVC belt and tough but lightweight polyethylene buckets.
Screw Conveyor Recovery Systems
Designed primarily for use with steel grit and shot, our screw conveyor recovery module with bucket elevator can continuously reclaim up to 180 cubic feet of media per hour. Available in standard lengths of 8, 12, 20 ft., and up to 50 feet by special order, screw systems feature rigid helicoid 6-inch by 1/4-inch thick flights. Built-in metering plates eliminate concerns of overloading – even with a frontloader filled with steel grit. Because they are used most often with steel grit and shot, most screw recovery modules are mounted in a pit so the heavy media can be pushed into them with skidloaders or other methods.
Hopper Recovery Systems
The hopper and bucket elevator recovery systems process up to 180 cubic feet per hour of dense and coarse media, such as steel grit and shot. With the 3 ft. x 3 ft. hopper system, flush mounting requires a pit just 4 1/2 feet deep. Where a high water table prevents excavation, the smaller 2 ft. x 2 ft. system can be wall-mounted and shovel fed.
M-Section® Recovery Systems
Our standard sweep-in M-Section® pneumatic recovery systems efficiently recover and recycle most medium and low-density blast media, such as glass bead, plastic, and aluminum oxide. The recovery section can be placed in a shallow channel, just 10 inches deep, for a true sweep-in operation, or surface mounted where conditions will not allow excavation.
