Abstract:

Naval shipyards and other domestic port facilities generate thousands of tons of used blast grit annually and dispose of it in landfills. Also, here are thousands of steel bridges in the United States that are on a repaint maintenance schedule that requires grit blasting for surface preparation this used grit also goes to landfills. However. for environmental reasons in is becoming prohibitively expensive to landfill used blast grit containing paint residues. The Institute of Gas Technology IGT has conducted test work to develop a process to clean blast grit no enable its recycling for reuse.
