Dust Collection
In addition to bag-house units, we offer a cartridge-type dust collector with both basket blaster models. The vertical cartridges in the CDC-6 are easy to replace and provide a filtration area of 452 square feet which captures 99.999% of particles one-half micron or larger. With either the bag-house or cartridge-type collectors, air can normally be recirculated to the workplace, thereby reducing HVAC costs.

Empire Pro-Finish basket blasters are designed for use with glass bead (180 mesh or larger}, aluminum oxide (40 to 200 mesh}, steel grit (G-125 to G-200). steel shot (S-70). and nutshells or plastic of any size. Consult Empire for recommendations concerning other abrasives.
Pro-Finish basket-blaster reclaimers are tunable, meaning they can be adjusted to prevent and control the loss of fine, medium or coarse media. They also include a removable filter screen to prevent oversized particles from causing clogging, an easy-access door for quick filling and a polyurethane liner that reduces maintenance requirements.
