Q: What does SAFE stand for?
A: SAFE stands for Steel Abrasive Finishing Equipment. When we started the business, we pioneered ways to recover and recycle steel grit used in surface preparation. Since that time we have used other blasting mediums based on the type of surface material and the profile required. Silica Sand is strictly forbidden for use in SAFE Systems, Inc. Equipment.
Q: Does SAFE make sandblasting equipment?
A:No, our abrasive blasting equipment typically uses steel grit and other recyclable abrasives. Steel grit and some other abrasives are recyclable, thus minimizing your liability for hazardous waste. Silica sand cannot be used in SAFE Systems’ equipment.
Q: Does SAFE do abrasive blasting?
A: We design and manufacture the equipment used by painting contractors and manufacturers of steel objects requiring surface preparation, but we don’t do the blasting ourselves. We do spend time in the field with our customers to better understand our cutomers needs.
Q: What are your equipment design capabilities?
A: We are constantly innovating, utilizing sophisticated 3D modeling with Finite Element Analysis to continuously find ways to improve field productivity and throughput. If one of our standard pieces of equipment doesn't meet your specifications, we are happy to customize a solution for you.
Q: What is a blast facility?
A: Blast facilities are typically enclosed rooms or buildings in which steel objects such as shipping containers, steel pipes, railroad cars, or other manufactured items are blasted with abrasives. Most facilities include a specialized floor which aids in the recovery, reclassification and recycling of the blasted grit. Blast facilities are frequently located in close proximity to paint rooms.
