Air Blasting

4652, ProFormer™ Blast Cabinets

  • Consolidate all Systems in One Enclosure
  • Move Easily between Work Areas
  • Hook Up with Only Two Connections

Empire ProFormer™ cabinets put it all together in a single assembly that's easy to move and simple to hook up. These cabinets require only two connections, air and electrical, and include features offered in our high production Pro-Finish® line. Plus, they come in two sizes: the 3642 with interior working dimensions of 36 inches deep by 42 inches wide by 48 inches high and its bigger brother, the 4652, with working space of 46 inches by 52 inches by 48 inches.

Both include a tunable media reclaimer, capable of recycling a variety of abrasives, and a cartridge-type dust collector, monitored by a minihelic gauge, contained in the same enclosure as the cabinet, along with all electrical and pneumatic interconnections between components. Forklift slots are also provided, making these units easy to move between work stations.

The dust-collector filtration system is designed for easy maintenance. Filters can be pulse-cleaned with the press of a button. When filters need replacement, they can be changed quickly and cleanly with a twist of two nuts. The filters slide into the cabinet where any loose dust falls into the cabinet, not onto the work floor.

Designed for production blasting, these versatile cabinets enable you to perform multiple tasks. You can clean or peen and perform almost any finishing job in between by simply varying air pressure and blast media.

These rugged cabinets can be specified with either suction- or pressure-blast systems and a wide range of standard factory options.

Rolling turntables, designed to expedite loading and processing, are just one of many standard factory options available with ProFormer™ cabinets.

Dust Collection & Media Loading

Dust Collection & Media Loading

ProFormer™ cabinets are equipped with cartridge dust collectors to facilitate a quick change of filtration surfaces. These two cartridges have a filtration area of 103 square feet each, providing a total of 206 square feet, and can be replaced in minutes through the cabinet door. As a result, loose dust falls into the cabinet rather than onto the work floor.

The standard minihelic gauge shows pressure differential across the filters, prompting the operator to activate the pulse-cleaning mechanism. With the photohelic upgrade, pulse cleaning is initiated automatically when the system detects a pre-set pressure differential.

Replenishing media is essentially fool-proof with ProFormer cabinets. They are specially designed to prevent clogging when abrasives are loaded through the cabinet floor. Pressure (middle) and suction (bottom) configurations appear on the left.
