Blastmaster 153 Remote Control Valve
The remote control valve gives an operator the ability to remotely activate and deactivate the flow of air and abrasive at the abrasive blasting nozzle. This increases productivity and eliminates the need for a pot tender. The Blastmaster® 153 Remote Control Valve is an OSHA-compliant abrasive blasting hose-end shutoff valve. When the spring-assisted lever is moved to the blasting position, the air and abrasive mixture in the abrasive blasting hose is released, allowing it to exit the abrasive blasting nozzle. When the lever is released, it returns to the non-blasting position, deactivating the flow of the air and abrasive mixture exiting the abrasive blasting nozzle. Typical applications include monument engraving, touch-up work, automobile restoration, and construction equipment maintenance. Common abrasives used include aluminum oxide, garnet, glass bead, mineral abrasives, and staurolite.

REDUCED ABRASIVE CONSUMPTION

The Blastmaster® 153 Remote Control Valve allows the operator to activate and deactivate the flow of abrasive at the nozzle during operator repositioning, reducing abrasive consumption, abrasive costs, clean-up labor, and disposal costs.

ENHANCED SAFETY

OSHA requires an abrasive blasting pot to be equipped with a remote control system, which only operates with continuous hand pressure and closes immediately upon release of the control switch by the operator (29 CFR 1910.244(b)). This remote control system meets the OSHA requirement by providing a “Fail-to-Safe” configuration, which will deactivate the remote control system in the event the operator drops or loses control of the hose-end shutoff.
