Flowtech Abrasive Blasting Systems

Why Flowtech Systems beat the Competition!

NO PRESSURE VESSEL - NO HASSLE !

THE WORLD'S 1ST NON-PRESSURIZED COMMERCIAL ABRASIVE BLASTING SYSTEM

Flowtech abrasive blasting systems are unique in design, compared with older “welded pressure pots” which have a host of issues such as downtime in between filling, moisture contamination etc…

Flowtech Systems do not utilize a pressure vessel, enabling for hassle free abrasive blasting with the world’s most efficient blasting system, reduce air consumption, abrasive use, eliminate downtime and enjoy blast cleaning again!

The main benefits of Flowtech abrasive systems is the ability to fill the machines with dry abrasive, and start blasting right away, without tedious setup and cleaning out after use. Letting you get on with the job at hand and eliminate downtime.

Although dry blasting, is still widely used where appropriate (we also offer our technology in our Infinity blast cabinets for dry blasting, and our Model-B system for blast room installations or dry blasting only).

Flowtech Abrasive Blasting Systems offer unrivalled productivity for all your wet/dry/vapour abrasive blasting projects!

Abrasive Control and ease of use

Control of the abrasive-water mixture and flow is critical for creating a consistent blast pattern. The Flowtech systems includes a built-in metering system that enables precise control of abrasive media. The metering valve has a lockable set-point so production rates can be set once and automatically controlled by the system. Competing equipment requires ongoing visual monitoring of production rates and adjustment of valves as needed. This creates challenges in tracking what settings work best for certain types of media and substrates. Precise control of the flow rate allows a faster start-up, as the settings are known, rather than visually adjusted by working with the nozzle person to communicate a desired result.

Ease of Maintenance

Maintenance of Flowtech Systems is aided by a hinged, easily opened panel for access to valves for servicing, when required, competing equipment often requires removal of multiple screws and total removal of the cover panel. In addition, Flowtech technical service team and distributors to diagnose and fix a machine while operators are in the field, helping them get back up and running quickly.

Health, Safety & Environmental Benefits

The Flowtech Model-V/B systems have also demonstrated great benefits related to health, safety, and environmental concerns. Flowtechs vortex enhanced abrasive induction significantly lower levels of dust and silica than both water-injection blasting and dry blasting. One major advantage is the on avergage 30% less air consumption (in comparison with welded pressure blast pots), due to the increase inefficiency.
