Econo-Blast portables are compact pressure blast-ers that share many features with their big brother, SuperBlast. Available in three sizes with grit capaci-ties of 1, 1.5 and 3 cubic feet, these portables include ASME vessel certification for safety, flexible air hose for ease of maintenance, wheels for portability and a pressure gauge. Less grit capacity and smaller noz-zles make these units ideal for spot blasting and detail work, particularly on a limited budget.
Larger Econo-Blast models can be equipped with Empire’s patented Sure-Flo grit valve and 680 or 780 remote controls, described on page 9, for safety. With these controls, blasting stops when the nozzle is released. Complete packages are available to protect the operator from blasting and potentially hazardous dust per OSHA requirements. Further, these packages include all the blasting equipment and accessories necessary to get you up and running safely.
