EcoQuip 2 EQm

When shopping for a Vapor Blaster, it’s critical to know the following:

  • Media and Hold Tight Consumption
  • Total Run Time
  • Ease of Fill and Cleanout

Our Vapor Blasters use A LOT LESS media and Hold Tight than the machines made in Texas, go faster, and do not need to be refilled as frequently – our machines may cost more up front (depending on size), but quickly give you a payback with media and labor savings, not to mention less waste and clean up time. Here is a quick chart which compares our EqoQuip® 2 EQm to the “commercial-grade” DB series of machines

*Recycled Bottle Glass (other medias can be used too) Important Features We Offer Not all Vapor Blasters are created equal – we are proud to offer “Best in Class” equipment, and have many customers who have rented other systems and tell us their experience with our equipment was better – here’s why: INTEGRATED WATER PUMP The pump used is engineered for our Vapor Blast systems – other OEM’s use no pump or one that’s off the shelf and not designed for vapor blasting environments.  The Texas-born Dustless Blasters have no pump OR water tank – this means each time you fill their tank with abrasive you also have to fill it manually with water and Hold Tight.  Have you ever tried to lift a 5 gallon pail of water, over and over again?  And don’t forget the amount of time it takes to fill the pail each time. Our EQm model comes with a garden hose connection allowing for a continuous supply of water – no refilling required throughout the day.  Working in a remote area?  No problem – our equipment can also draw water out of a water tote or check out our H2O To Go accessory.

EASE OF CLEAN OUT Have you ever seen what it takes to empty a “Texas-born” Dustless Blaster?  They actually recommend just blasting out the leftover media if you are in a hurry (that gets expensive and messy very quickly!), and if you have more time then you need to disassemble the bottom valve assembly using tools (very time consuming). Our systems use a simple clamp on the bottom of the vessel that can be undone with no tools.  This is critical – in today’s world of blasting, no two jobs are the same.  Although today you may have only needed to use crushed glass, tomorrow’s job may require something harder like Jet-Mag.  The EQm unit has the ability to quickly empty the vessel and easily contain the slurry mixture as it drains out. TANK LINING AND EXTERIOR PROTECTION You would expect all OEM’s to coat the inside of the vessel, especially since it is in constant contact with water and abrasive.  Well………believe it or not, some don’t.  Our machines use an advanced 2 coat system that fully protects your investment inside and out, ensuring a long life and low maintenance operation. SERVICE AND SUPPORT We have many stories of when our equipment performed better than others – if you are in the market for dustless blasting system, make sure you talk to us first as we can help you make an informed decision and ensure you invest your money wisely and do not have any ” post-sale” regrets. We have been in business since 1984 – our focus is “all things blasting” and helping our customers wherever and whenever they need it.
