Aerolyte Plastic Media Blast Cabinets

The Aerolyte System of paint stripping uses metered propulsion of plastic particles which are directed at low pressures toward the painted substrate. The velocity and angular shape of the plastic media results in breakdown and removal of the paint to effect a cleaned surface. Because the process is operator controlled and sight-oriented, selective layer-by-layer paint removal is possible.



Batch Processing Machines

Our parts finishing batch processing machines, which include both continuous and indexing turntable machines, are ideal for parts requiring long blast cycles. In the typical work scenario, the operator loads work pieces onto the turntable, sets the timer, starts the machine and returns when the cycle is completed. By adding a blowoff manifold and timer, which automatically remove residual material from the part and turntable, the operator is freed from the often dusty task of manual blow-off.

PRS Blast & Recovery System

Reduce Operating Costs and Improve Finishes

Using "economical" blast media, such as sand or slag, for industrial blasting can be very costly indeed. Because these low-cost abrasives break clown so quickly, reusing them is impractical. As a result, you are 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 Empires pneumatic Blast & Recovery System (PRS), you can tap the cost-saving advantages of more durable media for only a modest investment. Empires 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 savings alone.
