Tunable media reclaimer assures
high-quality blasting results by recycling only the correct-size
blasting media. Ultrawear lining on reclaimer interior provides
SuperBlast® pressure system, with dependable Sure-Flo® grit valve, simplifies maintenance and yeilds high production rates.
Media recovery hopper can be
moved around work area for easy media retrieval. Optional long troughs
allow media to be swept into system without shoveling.
Pressure blower, with
10-horsepower motor, extends effective work area and recovers media at
rates exceeding 70 pounds per minute. System handles media sizes up to
A-12 aluminum oxide and G-25 steel grit.
Dust collector, which captures
99% of particles one micron in size, permits conveying air to be
recirculated into the workplace, thereby reducing HVAC costs.
PRS Blast & Recovery System
Reduces Operating Costs and Improves Finishes
Using "economical" blast media,
such as sand or slag, for industrial blasting can be very costly
indeed. Because the low-cost abrasives break down so quickly, reusing
them is impractical. As a result, you're constantly paying for
replacement media, disposal of spent media, and man-hours to move this
material around -- all of which can put a big drain on your profits.
With Empire's Pneumatic
Blast & Recovery System (PRS), you can tap the cost-saving
advantages of more durable media for only a modest investment. Empire's
PRS lets you move up to recyclable media such as aluminum oxide,
chilled iron and steel grit, which can be used effectively over and
over -- from 6 to 200 times. The result is usually a very attractive
return on investment in media savings alone.
Reusable media are also
faster acting and less dusty, meaning you get the additional advantages
of increased productivity and a cleaner working environment. With the
PRS, you can move blasting operations into enclosures to comply with
increasingly stringent environmental regulations. And, because the PRS
lets you recycle only the abrasive you want, finishes are more
Simple blasting controls
and convenient media-loading procedures make Empire's PRS very easy to
operate. A built-in access ladder and viewing window in the system's
storage hopper are just two examples of the PRS's many convenient
features. And, with heavy-duty duct, an Ultrawear-lined reclaimer, and
a silicone carbide nozzle, you know the system is designed to last.
