Graco Inc. announces the new EcoQuip 2™ EQp, part of the EcoQuip 2 family of Vapor Abrasive® blast equipment. Featuring a portable cart with lift handles that allows users to transport the device from one job to another, this new machine is an affordable option for many surface preparation jobs.
While there is ultimately no such thing as dustless blasting, the EQp emits up to 92% less dust than traditional dry blasting, and works with coarse, fine or non-destructive blast media. The equipment is designed for a variety of applications including steel and concrete surface preparation, graffiti removal, paint and stain removal from wood, brick and patio cleaning, and iron fence and railing preparation. Long blast times of 30 to 60 minutes between refills, along with low water usage, allows users to complete the job quickly and efficiently. In addition, the machine features fast removal rates compared to other methods, such as pressure washing, with blast pressures up to 150 pounds per square inch (psi).
