All machines are fitted with a well-designed and reliable one-piece, remote control deadman system with silencer, for operator safety and comfort. This feature reduces labour costs, increases productivity, and reduces abrasive costs. Available with either steel grit valves or expendable media valves, they also include a moisture trap, to eliminate possible problems with wet air or condensation.

Airblast blasting machines are designed to be used with a comprehensive range of accessories, including nozzles, wet blast attachments, internal pipe cleaning devices, closed circuit blasting heads, and more.

Announcing the New Airblast Pressure Hold Blast Machine

Airblast is pleased to announce its new range of Airblast Pressure Hold Blast Pots. A modern evolution of the traditional blast pot, Airblast Pressure Hold Blast Pots are more efficient, use less abrasive, and are more responsive than traditional, non-pressure hold machines.

Releasing the deadman handle no longer means depressurising the blast machine. Our new deadman system stops abrasive and air being delivered to the nozzle but maintains pressure in the blast machine, reducing valve wear and preventing wasted abrasive.

The Airblast Pressure Hold Blast Pot drastically reduces the abrasive wastage that results from repeated pressurisation and depressurisation. In our tests, the Airblast Pressure Hold Blast Pot was able to utilise 20% more of the abrasive than non-pressure hold models.

A non-pressure hold blast pot depressurises whenever the operator releases the dead man’s handle. Air is vented through the remote control valve and the blast hose. Blast media then settles in the blast hose, forming a slug of abrasive. Reactivating the blast machine causes the blast pot to become pressurised again. The slug of media that collected in the blast hose is then ejected and blasting can recommence. This process can result in large quantities of blast media reaching the blast room floor without touching the work piece.

By contrast, the Airblast Pressure Hold Blast Pot ensures a steady feed of media and prevents large loads of abrasive from repeatedly pooling. Not only does this help to prevent media wastage, it also reduces wear and tear to prolong the life of your equipment.

Conversion

While the Airblast Pressure Hold Blast Pot is our new gold standard for blast machines, owners of non-pressure hold blast pots needn’t feel left out – our premium range of blast pots can often be retrofitted with our pressure hold system. Converting to a pressure hold system results in significant improvements to efficiency and throughput, ensuring a rapid return on investment.

Pressure hold conversion is available for the following premium Airblast blast pots:

  • Airblast 1440 – a mid-sized pot with a capacity of 60 litres.
  • Airblast 2040 – a large pot that holds up to 110 litres.
  • Airblast 2452 – the largest pot in Airblast’s premium range with a capacity of 200 litres.
