Huge Productivity & Financial Benefits

Small team – 1 BLASTRAC operator per system. 4 in total for a full prep and paint team typical for helidecks. Reduced POB and reduced equipment footprint. All BLASTRAC operatives also have full painting skills to allow assistance to the paint team

Increased productivity – Unit can achieve between 5m2/hr – 25m2/hr.

Safe - Suitable for use in hazardous Zone II areas due to low impact energy readings. Removes manual handling and HAVS issues as unit operated using small joystick controls

Closed circuit system recycles shot media and collects dust and grit, eliminating waste and removing time consuming clean-up. No environmental impact.

No SIMOPS issues  - several trades can work in close proximity as there is no large spread of equipment, no large scaffolding / canopy so no congestion occurs.

Single power supply - no need for air compressor or refuelling and the unit ties into the platform shutdown system

Quality is controlled – once the standard is set it can be achieved time after time
