EcoQuip 2 Vapor Abrasive Blasting Equipment
Vapor abrasive blasting (also known as wet abrasive blasting) removes coatings, contaminants, corrosion and residues from hard surfaces. It's similar to dry blasting, except that the blast media is moistened prior to impacting the surface, reducing dust significantly and also reducing the amound of water used when compared to traditional wet blasting.
EcoQuip vs. other wet abrasive blasting equipment
Some might claim that their products are "dustless" or "dust-free," but the reality is there is no such thing. Sure, using a wet abrasive blasting machine will cut down on the plume of dust you get from dry blasting, but you're also left with a puddle of water. Make sure you understand the facts around dustless blasting.
With Graco's EcoQuip 2 Vapor Abrasive blast equipment, you will see up to 92% dust suppression over dry blasting without the wet, slurry mess you get from traditional wet abrasive blasters.

How does wet abrasive blasting work?
Water and abrasive are combined in a pot under water pressure and then precisely metered into the airflow. When wet abrasive impacts a surface, the additional water weighs the particles down and creates a “dustless” effect.
Since EcoQuip 2 uses less water than slurry or other water-based technologies, pools of water aren't left behind so there is less need to worry about toxic runoff.
Dust suppression with EcoQuip 2 - Up to 92% less dust
If reducing dust is critical to your business and you are in the market for a new blast machine, be sure to research the claims manufacturers are making to ensure you are buying from a reputable company.
Graco tests 100% of our products internally and has third party qualification tests to make sure we provide customers with best-in-class products and support. Learn more about the testing we did with EcoQuip in this Dust Suppression Report Summary.

Wet abrasive blasting can substitute for sandblasting for virtually any application, but there are surfaces, conditions and environments for which wet blasting is especially advantageous. Learn about the differences between vapor abrasive blasting and other types of wet blasting, as well as the various media that can be used.
Various factors will determinze which nozzle works best for a particular blasting job. Compressor size, media and application all need to be considered. Learn what you need to know to choose the right blast nozzle every time.
When a blaster invests in equipment believing it to eliminate dust, his misconceptions can be costly. Read this article to find out what you should be aware of before making an investment.
