Using "economical" blast media, such as slag, for industrial blasting can be very costly indeed. Because these 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 ...

Empire offers a number of standard Pro-Finish variations for specialized air-blasting jobs. Ergo-Blast systems, for instance, increase productivity by improving operator performance during extended periods of continuous blasting. These cabinets are ergonomically designed for sit-down operation and include other features to reduce fatigue. As a result, machine operators concentrate on the job at hand when working for hours on repetitive tasks rather than trying to find the best position to relieve a sore back. By removing everyday distractions, Ergo-Blast cabinets maximize production.
Pro-Finish FaStrip cabinets are specifically designed for use with low-density media, such as plastics, that provide fast coverage without eroding substrates. Paint stripping, for example, can be performed quickly and economically without the use of hazardous chemicals. FaStrip cabinets deliver plastic or organic media from a large venturi nozzle coupled to a grounded, flexible blast hose. A large, vibrating screen within the reclaimer and Empire's exclusive automatic Sure-Flo media regulator, working in tandem with the MG-78 CR exhaust valve, keeps light media flowing smoothly. A magnetic separator is also included in the system to extract ferrous particles that can damage delicate substrates.
