Blast-One Weekly Tips
Tip #21
Get a quicker response with an Electric Deadman System

Those who are using multiple lengths of blast hose can maintain a safer work environment by upgrading to a deadman handle with a more reliable response.

Some blasting jobs require the use of long runs of blast hose - because the blast pot cannot be located near the blasting area.

safer work environment by upgrading to a deadman handle with a more reliable response

An Electric Deadman System is quicker and less susceptable to failure.

With 60 meters (130 feet) of blast hose, the response time from a pneumatic deadman handle can be quite slow. The electric system can speed up the response by up to 5 times and make the danger period to the blaster considerably less.

Why use an Electric Deadman System?
  • For instantaneous remote control operation
  • Use when pneumatic control lines exceed 30 metres (100 feet)
  • Low voltage – 12V DC for operator safety
  • Converts an existing pneumatic remote control system to a 12V DC electric control system
  • Kit “replaces” twinline and pneumatic control handle
  • Fast and simple to convert.
