Eco-Conscious Blasting Equipment

Using the most advanced, eco-friendly vapor blasting equipment in the industry

To best serve our clients and reduce our impact on the environment, McCahill Painting has invested in the latest vapor blasting equipment, including the Graco EcoQuip2 Vapor Abrasive Blaster, as well as compressors compliant with Tier 4 emission standards.

The Graco EcoQuip2 Vapor Abrasive Blaster is the industry standard in vapor blasting, using the latest low-dust wet abrasive blasting technology to deliver extremely effective blasting results while producing 92% less dust or airborne contamination than traditional sandblasting. This minimizes mess and clean up, with containment typically not being necessary.

Key benefits of using this equipment on blasting projects include:

  • Three times more flow than other blasting machines
    due to improved internal water pump
  • Minimal water consumption of about one quart per minute,
    for 8 hours of continuous use
  • 92% elimination of all airborne particles and dust, compared with dry blasting
  • 50-75% less abrasive than traditional dry blasting
  • More consistent blast because of auto-vent

Per manufacturing guidelines, we abide by the following specifications when using this equipment:

Our Tier 4 compressors further reduce our environmental impact by operating more efficiently and with far less production of particulate matter and nitrogen oxides, two key contributors to air pollution.

McCahill Painting technicians are fully trained and experienced using this state-of-the-art vapor blasting equipment, and we have successfully completed hundreds of vapor blasting projects in a wide range of industries and environments.
