Empire Econo-Finish® Blast Cabinets

Most common and versatile of all vibratory finishing styles of equipment.

Empire Econo-Finish® Blast Cabinets

Empire’s affordable Econo-Finish® blast cabinets offer a convenient front-access door for easy part loading, saving space and time during finishing tasks. Designed for light-to-medium cleaning and surface-finishing jobs, these economical cabinets are built with durable 14-gauge steel construction and essential features for various finishing tasks. Equipped with a foot-treadle blast control, external media regulation, quick-change safety glass, and a dust-collection system, they streamline operations effectively.

Econo-Finish cabinets come in two configurations: models with two-piece swing-down and flip-up doors for optimal interior access (as shown above), and a more economical option with a swing-down door only. The two-piece door models offer a standard upgrade package for extended usage and enhanced production.

Empire’s EF-2430B blast cabinet offers an excellent opportunity for beginners to explore abrasive blasting capabilities. Sharing the same basic design as other Econo-Finish models, it utilizes a single drop-down door to minimize costs further.
