Integrated Systems

Sponge-Jet Integrated Systems combine three essential components of Sponge-Jet Technology:

Sponge-Jet Feed Unit™ for the delivery or blasting of Sponge Media™ products.
Sponge-Jet Recycler™ to clean and ready Sponge Media products for reuse.
Vacuum or material-handling system for recovery and transport of Sponge Media.

A range of systems both standard and custom are available for various applications.

B-VAC™ Pro 4

Integrates all components in a single frame for transport by fork truck, flatbed or crane. The B-VAC is ideal for applications where space is a premium and redeployment time is costly. This is the most popular of Sponge-Jet integrated systems.

  • Integrated, vacuum-sealed, closed-top Sponge-Jet Recycler™
  • High-volume, low-noise vacuum ejector
  • High-strength steel frame and integrated ladder
  • Cyclone storage silos
  • High-capacity muffler
  • Blast pressure adjustment
  • Lifting eyes
  • Fork pockets
  • Secondary moisture separator
  • High-volume pressure relief valve
  • Centralized controls for precision monitoring and adjustment
  • Options: Pneumatic or electric vacuum and recycler
