Graco

Graco Inc. supplies technology and expertise for the management of fluids and coatings in both industrial and commercial applications. When Minneapolis-based Graco began investigating the blasting market, the equipment seemed like the perfect fit with the company’s history of moving, measuring, mixing, controlling, dispensing and spraying a wide variety of materials. After carefully researching the pros and cons of both dry blasting and methods of wet abrasive blasting, Graco launched the EcoQuip 2 vapor abrasive blasting system.

The vapor abrasive blasting method gives the operator more control over the water/abrasive mixture, which often results in a reduced amount of media expended. Not only does it use far less water than wet abrasive blasting methods - approximately 0.5 to 1 quart of water per minute - the EcoQuip 2 reduces dust by up to 92% over traditional dry blasting resulting in less containment and clean-up. To learn more, visit graco.com/EcoQuip


Methods of combining water with abrasive blasting to reduce dust has existed for decades. While new regulations to the abrasive blasting industry are forcing more companies to consider wet or vapor abrasive blasting, the perception in the market still remains that wet methods are messy, unreliable and not much different than a wet slurry coming out of the blast nozzle.

To combat these attitudes, manufacturers are introducing new equipment and technology to the surface preparation and cleaning markets. In this webinar, you will learn about different wet and vapor abrasive blasting methods, their advantages and disadvantages, and five things to consider before choosing your next blasting equipment.
