SuperBlast® Portables

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.

The Sure-Flo® grit valve (Pat. No. 4,518,145) delivers reliable and precise performance. The valve is durable and can be easily serviced at low cost.

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.


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 operator.

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.
