The new FasterBlaster: Shot Blasting Machine is better and faster than a traditional sand blasting machine and is now being offered by RBW Enterprises at http://www.rbwe.com.

RBW Enterprise’s FasterBlaster, the most powerful and versatile centrifugal shot blasting machine on the market, is now being offered in two sizes with two power options. The FasterBlaster is the only machine on the market that can blast clean both vertical and horizontal surfaces and pipe and is now available in models that can cover either 16-inch or 32-inch blast patterns with remarkable savings in time, labor, cleanup, wastes, and, above all, costs. Both units are available with a choice of 30 HP or 60 HP electric motors.

The FasterBlaster is a fully contained system, so little or no costly environmental protection measures have to be taken at the job site. Several factors result in drastically cutting job time and costs. There is no post-project clean up or disposal of the thousands of tons of sand debris that would be prevalent with traditional sandblasting equipment.

The FasterBlaster steel shot blaster recycles steel shot within the blast unit, and paint that is being removed from the surface being blasted is exhausted to the portable dust collector through a flexible six-inch hose, which eliminates the need for an enclosed scaffold setup. All of these features improve project time, which adds up to reduced costs for the customer.

The FasterBlaster system is being utilized throughout the world for cleaning water tanks, petro chemical tanks, wind tower sections, plate and pipe on jobs ranging from flat surfaces such as roofs and floors to vertical operations where it literally climbs the walls. The unit has a flat mat seal that creates a suction cup affect against the wall, roof, or floor surface. The seal vacuums tightly over weld seals. There are zero emissions, making it possible for paint to be applied simultaneously near the operating machine, another time saving bonus feature.

With shot blasting equipment there is no clean up required, and the total disposable wastes are only a few drums of paint dust, metallic dust, rust, and media fines. A single technician on the ground utilizing a wireless hand held remote control operates the FasterBlaster. Either 30 HP or 60 HP electric motors that drive centrifugal blast wheels to throw steel shot against the surface power the units. No air is required in the blasting process. The machines seal tightly to the surface due to the high vacuum generated by the dust collector, and there are no emissions around the suction cup seal.

The FasterBlaster 16 can clean closely around obstructions and the FasterBlaster 32 is recommended for wide open areas. Both highly mobile and easy to move and set up, these machines deliver unparalleled performance in blast cleaning tank floors, roofs, internal and external walls, wind towers, pipe, plate and concrete floors. They are also the most effective equipment on the market for blast cleaning dome roof and knuckle roof curved surfaces. Highly flexible, the machines clean floors or plate while moving either forward or in reverse, and clean walls while moving up or down the surfaces. The FasterBlaster can be turned a full 90 degrees to clean close to the ground on tank walls and it blast cleans close to vents, pipes and other obstructions.

FasterBlaster’s one-man operation cuts labor costs dramatically as a single operator ‘s production equals that of three to six hand blasters. Using an electric generator, rather than compressed air, adds additional savings. Total maintenance costs average a miniscule one cent per square foot in a typical job that produces just two to three 55-gallon drums of total waste disposal. The units can blast clean from 300 to 900 square feet per hour on new or painted steel surfaces, depending upon surface conditions, type and thickness of paint, and the cleaning specifications. The units provide a 2-5 mil profile, depending upon the size of steel shot being used.

The FasterBlaster literally has to be seen in action to fully appreciate its stunning performance, versatility, and cost effective value. A complete series of videos vividly demonstrating the FasterBlaster 16 and FasterBlaster 32 tackling a full gamut of challenging jobs and heavy duty blast cleaning jobs can be seen on RBW Enterprises’ web site at rbwe.com or on Youtube.com by searching under FasterBlaster.
