  • Blast and Recovery System (BRS) by Schmidt®

The Schmidt® Blast & Recovery System (BRS) is designed to maximize the use of a wide range of recyclable abrasives, including steel grit, to remove coatings and corrosion when cleaning steel or concrete surfaces. Blast and recover simultaneously, or blast and then vacuum abrasive independently. Eliminate dust clouds, poor visibility and costly, time-consuming cleanup. Ideal for sensitive jobsites, indoor blasting, building restoration, lead or asbestos abatement, bridge and road maintenance, barge and ship cleaning, and more.

The BRS is designed to blast and vacuum recover abrasive media for reuse. These systems can blast and vacuum abrasive independently, or blast and vacuum at the same time (closed circuit). Abrasive is contained in the pressure vessel for blasting. After or during blast operation, the abrasive is recovered using the system’s vacuum. Small particles are carried by the vacuum air stream through the reclaimer into the dust collector. The reusable abrasive drops to the bottom of the reclaim hopper. Large particles (paint chips, etc.) are separated out by an abrasive screen. Abrasive is reloaded from the reclaim hopper for reuse when the blast vessel is depressurized.

BRS Features

• Blast where open-air blasting is prohibited, or is not possible or practical
• Portable or skid-mounted 2.0, 3.5 and 6.5 cu. ft. models
• Pneumatic or optional electric remote controls
• Blast pressure regulator with bypass piping allows blasting at lower pressures
• Urethane eductor (pneumatic vacuum pump) with 150, 225, 350 or 440 CFM nozzle
• Cyclonic dust separator/media reclaimer
• Dust collector (dry or dry-HEPA) with automatic pulse jet to prevent clogging
• Easy, quick-open hatches for access to cartridges and filters
• Optional differential pressure gauge (dust collector)
• Moisture separator and media vibrator for smooth, even flow of abrasive
• TVII abrasive metering valve (urethane sleeve)
• Tungsten Carbide TVII sleeves available
• Optional adjustable air wash for improved media cleaning
• Optional remote abrasive cutoff for cleaner start/stop
• Optional electric vacuum available

Mini BRS Features

• Even better portability with a new, improved and more durable skid design and new wheel alignment that make moving and turning easier. Increased skid stability minimizes bumps when going over uneven surfaces
• Quiet vacuum eductor
• New palm button actuated air pulse for quick and easy cleaning of dust collector filter cartridge
• New blast and vacuum head with 40% larger blast pattern (or greater with adapters/nozzles) significantly improves productivity
• New trigger-style deadman control makes operation even more comfortable and allows one-handed operation
• High-temperature blast head option allows for blasting of high temperature surfaces (up to 500 °F)
• Ease of cleaning out the dust collector filter with new automatic air pulse system
• Improved muffler to reduce noise level by close to 10% (from 110db to 96db)

BRS II Features

• Features Schmidt TVII and ComboValve
• Optional High Flow Auto Air Valve for applications with large nozzles
• Moisture separator and media vibrator ensure consistent flow of abrasive
• Optional high efficiency secondary cyclone extends dust collector filter life
• Four-cartridge dust collector with automatic pulse jet to minimize clogging of dust filters
• Reclaimer features large, quick-opening door to access screen
