A Pre-Engineered Blast Booth (PEB) is designed for the company who is contemplating bringing work in-house. With no below grade requirements a PEB is a modest investment. Some key features of the system include; OSHA compliant enclosures, BVS ™ booth ventilation system, Electrical Controls , Safety Interlocked doors to assure safe blasting, SuperBlast®ASME – approved pressure vessels, Tunable Media Reclaimer and 10-hp blower to recover media at rates exceeding 70 lbs per minute.
Empire’s new line of Pre-Engineered Booths (PEB) feature all the essentials contained in blast rooms at a fraction of the cost. These 10’-high booths not only provide the blast punch to strip large parts fast. They also reclaim media, remove dust and breathe fresh air into the work enclosure with Empire’s exclusive Booth Ventilation System (BVS) . Moreover, they come in 10’ x 10’, 12’ x 17’, 12’ x 24’ and 12’ x 31’ models, all of which go up easily on a standard plant floor without welding or excavation.
In operations relying on a heavy flow of single-pass abrasives to air blast large work pieces, the move up to an Empire room typically pays for itself in less than a year. By empowering users to switch from a one-pass abrasive, such as coal slag, to a durable abrasive that recycles many times, Empire rooms slash costs for replacing and disposing of blast media. Per-day savings on a media flow of over two tons exceed $400 in operating costs alone, not to mention the associated environmental and operator-safety dividends accruing from blasting within an enclosure designed specifically for the process.
The adage, “Success breeds success,” rings true for Empire’s blast-room business. Superior product quality and effective selling continue to fuel our growth in the room market, and improved logistics have added another catalyst. More specifically, our increasing abilities to source production and provide turnkey service from multiple locations within the United States have put Empire rooms at the forefront of the industry in this country.
