Econ-O-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. Less grit capacity and smaller nozzles make these units ideal for spot blasting and detailwork, particularly on a limited budget.

Larger Econ-O-Blast models can be equipped with Empire's patented Sure-Flo grit valve and 680 or 780 remote controls, described on page 9, for safety. With these controls, blasting stops when the nozzle is released.

Complete packages are available to protect the operator from blasting and potentially hazardous dust per OSHA requirements. Further, these packages include all the blasting equipment and accessories necessary to get you up and running safely.

XL Packages offered with 150 and 300 models contain the following items:
  • Air-fed respirator helmet with 50 helmet lenses
  • Personal air filter
  • 25-foot starter breathing hose
  • 25 feet of blast hose with couplings
  • DC3-3 Di-Carb nozzle
  • Package of ten coupling washers
  • Package of 10 nozzle washers
Using a 3/16" nozzle, Econ-O-Blast portables require only 38 SCFM at 80 psi and can be equipped with smaller nozzles to accommodate smaller air compressors.

N/A We support our portable blasters and blast rooms with a complete line of modern safety equipment that protects operators and complies with OSHA when properly applied and maintained. All devices affecting breathing-air quality should be inspected and serviced regularly, particularly when a multi-purpose compressor is used to supply breathing air.
