Blastmaster 156E Electric Remote Control Switch
A remote control switch gives an operator the ability to remotely activate and deactivate the remote control system at the abrasive blasting nozzle. An electric remote control switch reduces the cycle time required to activate and deactivate the remote control system compared to a pneumatic remote control switch. The reduced cycle time is most noticeable when the operator is working at distances greater than 100 feet from the abrasive blasting pot. The Blastmaster® 156E Remote Control Switch is designed for simple maintenance and repair. Typical applications include blast rooms, blast yards, bridges, oil refineries, pipelines, railcar shops, shipyards, and storage tanks.
The Blastmaster® 156E Remote Control Switch allows the operator to remotely activate and deactivate the remote control system at the abrasive blasting nozzle, eliminating the need for a pot tender, increasing productivity and reducing costs.
OSHA requires an abrasive blasting pot to be equipped with a remote control system, which only operates with continuous hand pressure and closes immediately upon release of the control switch by the operator (29 CFR 1910.244(b)). This remote control system meets the OSHA requirement by providing a “Fail-to-Safe” configuration, which will deactivate the remote control system in the event the operator drops or loses control of the remote control switch.
