The ALG Technical Working Group recently issued an updated Appendix to the minutes regarding Abrasive Blasting Removal Systems (Appendix 6/17). The updated Appendix states that control measures for the use of Abrasive Blasting Removal Systems should include:
‘Abrasive systems using fibre suppressant as part of the blasting media should be used’
ESL’s Torbo Dustless Blasting Systems have always been at the leading edge of technology due to continued investment in Research and Development in order to provide the most efficient, reliable and environmentally friendly abrasive blasting solutions in the world.
We are pleased to announce that all ESL-supplied Torbo machinery and equipment is now available with the all-new Torbo-Mix which complies with the directive of the updated Appendix by automatically mixing a fibre suppressant with the blasting media.
Steve Thomas, Business Development Director for ESL commented: ‘Once again, the Torbo range of machinery and equipment has taken a lead in innovation and development by providing a compliant solution for efficient asbestos removal. Our entire hire fleet is now equipped with the new Torbo-Mix. The demand has been very high because this is a solution that works so well.’
