If your operations involve cleaning with chemicals, acid etching or dipping, liquid honing, wire brushing, sanding, deburring, grinding or peening, moving up to a Pro-Finish® cabinet will normally expedite work, improve quality and eliminate the environmental problems associated with chemical finishing.
Built for production blasting, these rugged cabinets enable you to perform a long list of tasks ranging from blending surface flaws to removing foreign matter, such as carbon from pistons, without affecting tolerances. By simply varying air pressure and blast media, you can perform almost any surface finishing job more quickly and precisely than with alternative methods.
Pro-Finish cabinets can be specified with either suction or pressure blast systems—a pressure system being the preferred choice for faster production and more precise control of media at both high and low operating pressures. In addition, they are available in seven sizes and loaded with standard features that reduce operating and maintenance costs.
Modular design, plus an extensive range of factory options, lets you select a system that’s just right for your applications.
Gentle on Work Surfaces and Compatible with Your Pressure Vessel
Empire SafeStrip™ cabinets contain the blast process during the cleaning and stripping of delicate surfaces. They are designed to work in conjunction with our SafeStrip portables as well as other pots capable of delivering fine media.
With a SafeStrip system, you can quickly and safely remove old coatings, dirt, oil, corrosion and other unwanted residues from soft metals, rubber, plastics and other sensitive surfaces. SafeStrip is ideal for work on tools, machine parts and molds, and in many other applications requiring a "light touch." SafeStrip systems assure even flow of light media by creating a differential between the pressure vessel and blast pressure. This pressure differential, which can be adjusted precisely with a manual valve, prevents bridging and produces consistent feed rates.
When used with non-toxic abrasives, such as bicarbonate of soda, SafeStrip systems are environmentally safe, as long as materials being removed from the work surface are also non-toxic.
Other Sizes available.
If you're looking for a fast, efficient, economical method for finishing smaller parts, check out one of Empire's basket blasters. As parts are rotated through an abrasive blast stream, they are cleaned, finished or peened evenly and automatically. By simply varying air pressure and abrasive media, you control the type of finish you get as well as required processing times. Besides freeing you from the tedious chore of manual parts processing, Empire's basket blasters are inexpensive, come fully assembled and ready for operation, and meet OSHA requirements.
