Blastrac EBE portable abrasive blast cleaning systems are an environmentally friendly way to prepare steel surfaces such as ship sides, decks and other marine surfaces. The systems use steel shot and grit, and operate dust-free to eliminate the need for containment and mini- mize exposure to the worker and the environ- ment. Vertical systems use a rigging system to crawl around steel surfaces, working three to six times faster than conventional blasting.

A range of models for either vertical or horizontal surfaces assures the right machine to reduce labor cost, exposure, disposal and production time on your job.

CPV Manufaturing

CPV Manufacturing's O-Seal System valves and fittings are rated for heavy-duty liquid or gas service and provide years of reliable, leak- proof operation. The O-Seal Valve's leakproof reliability is the result of two flat-faced fittings that are joined with a resilient O-ring incor- porated into a close tolerance groove that uses line pressure — meaning the higher the pres- sure, the tighter the seal. O-Seal valves and fittings are rated for 6,000 psi, at temperatures from -20 to 225 degrees

Schmidt abrasive blasting equipment is designed to maximize productivity for bulk system applications such as those found in shipyards. All systems feature an efficient pip- ing designed to minimize pressure drop, and

Schmidt valves and controls that use signifi- candy less abrasive. Save on abrasive costs, spend less time on cleanup and minimize dis- posal. Schmidt bulk systems are available in a range of standard and custom systems to meet specific applications. Circle 129


The Vacu-Blast BRS systems use a wide range of abrasive media to remove coatings and other materials from steel surfaces. Applica- tions include large jobs where productivity is paramount: weld-joints, barge and ship clean- ing, bridge work, and more. BRS systems can perform blast and vacuum functions simulta- neously, thereby virtually eliminating dust clouds, poor visibility and costly cleanup. The simultaneous blast/vacuum action makes the Vacu-Blast BRS ideal for situations when open air blasting is neither possible nor practical. The

BRS systems can also perform each function independendy, making them versatile and powerful tools for any blast cleaning application.
