PRS BLAST & RECOVERY SYSTEMS
THE RIGHT RECOVERY SYSTEM FOR YOUR PRODUCTION NEEDS
Mechanical recovery consists of a bucket elevator and drum separator
Empire offers a full spectrum of media-recovery systems to meet almost any application requirement. These range from our economical pneumatic recovery system (PRS) to configurations incorporating full-recovery floors. The PRS, which employs the same type of cyclonic reclaimer as our Pro-Finish® blast cabinets, can be used alone or in conjunction with a vibratory or screw floor. However, with the partial or full floor shown on the facing page, mechanical reclamation is more economical. Mechanical recovery consists of a bucket elevator and drum separator—or media air wash—that quickly recycle a large volume of media regardless of whether it’s introduced through a sweep chute or full floor designed for nonstop production. Empire floors can be adapted to an existing enclosure or one you build on site. With Empire, you can select the system that’s right for you and be confident we’ll help you make the best choice. Plus, we offer the option of turnkey installation backed by the best warranty in the industry.

PRS system offers an economical alternative to a full blast room for limited-use operators. In addition to pneumatically collecting media, the unit recycles and cleans abrasives through a cyclonic reclaimer attached to a media-filtration system.
