Spartan Blasting Systems (Durham, California) recently introduced the Universal Blasting Station, a system designed to be compatible with multiple brands and pot sizes, and to reduce the number of times workers need to refill the pot.

The Universal Blasting Station comes with two parts: the skid, which holds the pot, hoses and breathing air, and the bin, which holds up to 5,000 pounds of media.

Workers can use a forklift to empty the 5,000-pound super-sack of media into the bin.

Spartan says the system is intended to save blasters time and money, by eliminating the need to repeatedly refill the pot. Instead of filling the pot manually with smaller bags, the system allows the use of a 5,000-pound super-sack of media. Workers can use a forklift to empty the super-sack into the bin, the company explains.

Spartan also notes that eliminating the use of 50- and 100-pound bags that workers must lift and carry manually can help to limit injuries during blasting. The Universal Blasting Station is made for operations that utilize portable blasting pots and operate on-site and mobile off-site jobs, the company says.
