Question

Sandblasting And Coating In High Humidity


I have a coating subcontractor working at a water treatment plant in the Rio Grande Valley region of Texas. This area commonly has days with high humidity, and at this time of year the dew point is often the same as the ambient temperature. The subcontractor is currently working on sandblasting and priming interior areas of water filtration boxes, but cannot work during these high humidity days. The filtration boxes have an open top that the sub is covering with a tarp, but the tarp only contains the blasting material. It does not have an affect on humidity inside the filter. This issue is impacting our schedule and delaying the project day-for-day.

I am looking for any suggestions on solutions to this issue whether they be dehumidification, alternative equipment, or any other possible resolutions.

Thanks in advance for any input.

You can get with Hurtz rental and they can do out door AC and dehumidifiers. That will take care of your problem.
