[SuperBlast | Econo-Blast]
Safe, Reliable & Efficient
|E-Z Fill® bag breaker and screen (Pat. No. 4,557,825) automatically breaks and filters bags of grit through a large, six-inch inlet.
ASME construction assures vessel integrity year after year.
SuperBlast's slim design lets you wheel it through narrow doorways. There's no side piping to damage.
Moisture separator prevents freeze-up, improves grit flow.
Compact, front-mounted controls reduce the possibility of damage.
Large piping maintains high operating pressure.
Flexible air line simplifies maintenance and minimizes pressure drops caused by multiple fittings.
||Low profile makes filling less
strenuous. Deep positioning of the screen within the filling head
eliminates the need for separate, height-raising, add-on screens.
A large access port (not shown) provides easy access to the interior.
Tilt control improves stability, makes blaster easier to move and prevents flat spots on tires.
grit valve (Pat. No. 4,518,145) delivers reliable and precise
performance. The valve is durable and can be easily serviced at low
Simplicity, safety, reliability and performance—
those were our design goals when we engineered SuperBlast portables.
Many years on tough jobs, such as removing corrosion, preparing
surfaces for coating and maintaining heavy equipment, have proved that
SuperBlast portables deliver exceptional value in the field.
A look at the callouts above will show you that SuperBlast
portables are made of the "right stuff." These rugged systems are the
product of ingenuity and experience: they combine a host of standard
features designed to boost productivity and profits. In addition, they
can be ordered in a variety of configurations. including your choice of
pneumatic or electric remote controls, a complete OSHA package and a
full line of accessories.
SuperBlast makes short work of big projects, and small jobs are a snap. For the best blasting results, nothing beats SuperBlast.
CONTROL SYSTEMS DESIGNED FOR SAFETY AND PROFIT
Empire gives you
the choice of two remote operating systems. Either can be specified
with pneumatic or electric controls and all conform to OSHA. The four
configurations share a simple, reliable design that shuts down blasting
when the "on/off' trigger is released for operator safety. The key
difference between the electric and pneumatic arrangements is that the
electric systems perform better in cold weather and provide faster
"start/stop," especially when the pressure vessel is far from the
Manual controls, which can later be upgraded to remotes, are
also available, but these systems require a tender at the vessel to
assist in operating the system.
780 (pot-under-pressure) controls, used with
Empire's SuperBlast, PPS and FaStrip systems, stop
blasting when the "on/off" trigger is released while
maintaining pressure in the vessel. This arrangement,
which conserves compressed air and is easiest on
system components, is especially useful for spot
blasting because of the fast restarts it provides.
680 (blow-down) controls, used on SuperBlast and
Econo-Blast portables, vent pressure from the vessel
when the "on/off" trigger is released. This setup makes
blasting easier for a single operator and permits auto-
matic grit refills.
