 Press Releases

  • AFC Finishing Systems is proud to announce its 6th appearance at FABTECH! Following on from the interest surrounding the launch of AbVac at last year’s show, AFC will be showcasing their industry-leading blast room reclamation system – the Airflex Sweeper Recovery Floor.

    The Airflex system automatically recovers and reclassifies abrasive material from a specially-designed modular floor system and delivers it back to the blaster – completely eliminating the need to stop production to recover media.

    Airflex is virtually silent, consumes relatively little energy, requires no compressed air, and very little civil works are needed to install Airflex at your site.

    Visit our unique display booth A6476 for a live demonstration of Airflex and find out how you can make your blasting processes more efficient today.

  • AbVac
    No area inaccessible with the AbVac Grit Recovery Unit from Airblast AFC. Reclaiming up to 10,000lbs of blast media/hour, AbVac is highly portable, has low power requirements, is highly effective with extended hose lengths, very low-noise & simple to use....

  • Perfect for use in restricted spaces and difficult to reach locations like bridges, water tanks or gas towers, AbVac is one of the most portable recovery devices available anywhere in the world.

    An electric-powered suction unit, it is mounted onto a rigid stand with retractable legs. The unit is designed for the collection of dust and debris up to 2” into a Big Bag and can be combined with an abrasive storage hopper to allow recovered abrasive to be reused.

    A completely enclosed recovery system means operators can work without mask or goggles and with no risk to respiratory health. AbVac uses automatic discharge to allow operators to work continuously - improving efficiency particularly in locations where manual emptying is impractical.
