Micro air abrasion is the best way to clean historic buildings, sculptures and monuments with precision and the utmost care. This equipment offers tremendous versatility by handling Wood, Metal and Glass surfaces. It is great for Marine surfaces.
There are three models that have a PSI Range of 3 to 123 and the two smaller models have a 3 feet hose while the larger unit has a 5 foot hose, and all can have an extension.
Thanks to the low air pressure, it will minimize media consumption by 50-75% in comparison to traditional sand blasting equipment. This will reduce the cost of media drastically by reducing consumption needs and disposal costs while maintaining achieving perfect cleaning results. Due to the mineral hardness and low friability, it can be reused several times, producing even more cost savings for the operator.
The units are forged out of lightweight aluminum, making the system extremely portable. The equipment can easily be transported to and from job sites and even up scaffolding. The units and the required compressor can fit nicely into the back of a van or truck.
USE WET OR DRY
By connecting a garden hose to the pot, you can operate both the HELIX and ECO Blaster nozzles with water. You can control the flow of water at the nozzle to create a dust free work environment or to create optimal cleaning solutions for gentle removal of surface contamination.
Multiple abrasive media are available, depending on your requirements.
Garnet – this media is made from a mineral called almandine which is 100% natural.
Calcium Carbonate – with a fine grain size it is best for cleaning bricks, stone and sculptures especially for removal of salt efflorescence, air pollutants, carbonization, soot and black crust.
Sodium Bicarbonate – ideal for use within the food industry as it guarantees hygiene. Also a favourite of automotive, glass, oxidized metal and plant maintenance.
Nut Shells – Crushed walnut shells are 100% natural.
