The AmphiBlast system is the industry's most efficient and productive dual-purpose abrasive blaster. Unlike other blast systems that mix abrasive and water inside the vessel, the AmphiBlast system injects water into the blast stream after the metering valve, using a patent-pending, user-friendly and uniquely precise water injection system. With this system, you can quickly and consistently control every aspect: fine-tune air, abrasive and water flows to achieve optimal blasting performance, all while maintaining efficient use of grit and water. Switch between wet or dry blast, blowoff, and softwash™ without having to reset your air, abrasive or water, using a central, easy-to-use gauge console.
At the heart of the abrasive control system is the robust Schmidt Thompson® Valve II, used globally for nearly two decades and capable of metering a wide range of coarse or fine abrasives in the AmphiBlast system. Dry blasting with the AmphiBlast features the same productivity gains and safety advantages found only in Schmidt systems. When wet blasting, operators can set and immediately see any change in water flow by using the gauge readout. This allows the operator to dial in and consistently repeat the water flow for minimal water consumption, maximum productivity, minimum abrasive use, or any other preference.
The unique softwash feature automatically lowers blast air pressure and increases water flow for an effective, gentle rinse at the flip of a switch. Flip the switch back, and the unit returns to the same blast pressure setting as before. Changing to blowoff mode is just as easy, and also provides a lower blast air pressure for easier, safer, and quieter operation.
