Blastrac GPX 16-65 Ride-On Shot Blaster Receives Updated Dust Collection System
Gas or liquid propane powered system cleans and prepares concrete or steel surfaces Fresno, TX - (April 30, 2004) - The Blastrac® GPX 16-65 ride-on shot blaster now features an improved onboard dust collection system. Simpler in design, with fewer moving parts, this new system uses a compressed air pulse to clean the unit's six dust cartridges. This system cleans more effectively, resulting in longer cartridge life and better filtering capabilities. Engine capacity originally used by the dust collection system is no longer needed, providing additional horsepower to the blast wheel for increased shot flow and higher productivity. The GPX 16-65 is powered by a 65 h.p. gasoline or liquid propane engine. With a 16" blast cleaning path and a travel speed of up to 200 ft./min., the GPX 16-65 can clean up to 3,000 sq. ft. of concrete per hour. It strips, cleans and profiles concrete or steel surfaces and is ideal for surface preparation work related to bridge deck repair, highway maintenance, parking deck maintenance and other large jobs. A blast pattern adapter reduces blast pattern width for jobs such as line stripe removal. For more information on the Blastrac® brand, call 800-256-3440 or visit www.surfacepreparation.com.
