Blast and Recovery System

Blast and Recovery Systems (BRS) are designed for use when open-air blasting is prohibited, when it is not possible or is impractical. These systems blast and recover spent abrasive, contaminants and dust at the same time. They can also be used to blast and then vacuum abrasive independently. While BRS will never replace open-air blasting for all applications or jobs because of their lower overall productivity, there are those jobs that are ideally suited for these systems.

Available in different format from the Mini BRS to the BRS II, this system has proved itself in various industries.


The miniBRS™ system is a compact and easily maneuverable abrasive blaster that blasts and then recovers spent abrasive, contaminants and dust in the same step, eliminating the need for containment. Unlike other systems on the market, the miniBRS has an ergonomic design, a lightweight yet durable blast head and smaller diameter, lighter weight hoses that are sized to match the system—all to make the miniBRS exceptionally easy and comfortable to use. Operator fatigue is reduced and productivity is higher with this system.

Designed to deliver powerful performance over a range of blasting pressures in a compact package. Blast and recover at up to 200 feet away from the unit. Operates on just a 185 cfm compressor.
