Empire manufactures a full line of portable blasters, ranging from “do-it-yourself” suction blasters up to our contractor grade SuperBlast® pressure machines, designed to strip structures and large work-pieces at high removal rates.
Backed By The Best Warranty In The Industry: Three Years Limited!
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.
Econo-Blast® portables are compact pressure blasters that share many features with their big brother, SuperBlast®. Available in three sizes with grit capacities 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.
When stripping operations involve delicate surfaces or require precise removal of old coatings, nothing beats FaStrip® machines for speed, quality, safety or economy. By delivering plastics, wheat starch or other soft media at low pressures, FaStrip® makes it possible to strip delicate metallic or composite materials quickly and thoroughly without damaging the substrate.
SafeStrip™ portables are designed specifically to handle fine, light media used in the cleaning and stripping of delicate substrates. SafeStrip™ portables quickly and safely remove old coatings, dirt, oil, corrosion, and other unwanted residues from soft metals, rubber, plastics, and other sensitive surfaces. They are ideal for work on statues, monuments, machinery and molds, and in many other applications requiring a “light touch.”
This pneumatic blast and recovery system (PRS) pays for itself quickly by recycling media. Durable media such as chilled iron and steel grit can be recycled effectively 6 – 200 times.
As environmental codes become more stringent, the demand for contained blasting rises. By enabling media recovery at the nozzle, Empire's Blast N' Vac® product line virtually eliminates the need to collect media manually, resulting in safer, cleaner blasting.
