Blastrac Introduces Global Shot Blaster Line

Monday, May 10, 2010

Comment | More

Blastrac NA (Oklahoma City, Okla.) introduced the Global Shot Blasters line of surface-preparation machines for stripping, cleaning, and profiling of concrete, steel, and asphalt surfaces.

The series—the 1-8DPS30, 1-10DS Global, 1-15DS Global, and the 2-20DT Global—are self-propelled, walk-behind units that are maneuverable in forward and reverse. The machines offer production rates ranging from 450 to 4,850 square feet per hour, are virtually dust-free when connected to dust-collector systems, and operate as a one-step process. The machines strip coatings, line stripings, and compounded residues, and leave the surface clean, dry, and profiled, the company says.

Blastrac 1-8DPS30Consistent blast patterns and improved productivity are partially attained through the AC inverted-drive motors and integrated brakes. The blast travel speed is maintained up or down grades, and on flat surfaces, and all units also feature easily accessible controls with drive and speed adjustments on the steering handles, the company says.

The 1-10DS and 1-15DS Global machines are equipped with dual-voltage motors with auto-sensing technology for literally "plug-n-blast" operation. The electrical panels feature auto-sensing voltage controls for added safety and efficiency, with no need to manually transfer wiring connections for 230 versus 440 volts. All electrical components are UL certified.

The larger 1-15DS and 2-20DT machines carry quick-lift rear caster assemblies that are actuated with the precision leverage bar that stores onboard the units, and the series is equipped with heavy-duty castors and drive wheels for performance and maneuverability. Other features are extended-life motors; long-life blast wheels; laser-cut components; and powder-coated finishes for added durability.
