The Blast Ninja nozzle was developed to solve a series of challenges that have impacted the health, safety, and happiness of industrial workers who regularly encounter high-decibel noise levels. These levels are typically ranked by The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) as ‘hazardous.’ Under OSHA’s noise standard compliance (29 CFR 1910.95), the legal limit is a maximum of four hours of work for those in a facility with sound levels exceeding 95 dBA.
Oceanit's innovative noise-reduction blasting technology helps to reduce the average 115 dB that abrasive blasting emits. At a normal 115 dB, OSHA sets a max safe exposure time of just fifteen minutes per day. Blast Ninja reduces that sound level to just 95 dB, a huge leap in protecting the hearing of blasting operators and nearby workers.
Oceanit’s Blast Ninja system works by reducing the nozzle air exit velocity and sound pressure level, while preserving particle velocity to maintain equal abrasive power. With the Blast Ninja, workers and company stakeholders experience an improvement of productivity, with less distraction and liability risks. Additionally, the Blast Ninja has an estimated life of 400 blasting hours before replacement, increasing savings and ROI.
