Abrasive Blast Machines, Wetblast Machines, and Specialty
Blasting Tools for Your Surface Preparation Jobs
Today you could be supervising a half-dozen operators, or a crew of one (You!). You could be surface finishing,
removing corrosion, dry blasting, or wetblasting. Maybe you are surface preparing pipe interiors for recoating, or you need a lightweight suction blaster for small or touchup jobs. Whatever the job, you have to be able to do it all—at a moment’s notice—because you’re running a business and you have more on your plate than just the abrasive blasting job in front of you.
Whatever the job—you need the right equipment.
Abrasive Blast Machines
The blast machine you need depends on the job—or jobs—you do:
- If your jobs vary from touchup to demanding, from coal slag to crushed glass and anything in between, a 1/2 to 6-cuft pot that you can throw in your pickup’s bed offers the flexibility and mobility you need.
- Our 8-cuft Dual Chamber or 10 or 20-cuft pots are ideal for high-production jobs that need long blasting intervals without interruption.
- Even bigger jobs with multiple operators and almost nonstop blasting need bigger machines, which is why Clemco builds 60, 120 and 160-cuft bulk blasters.
- Reduce downtime and ensures your jobs continue uninterrupted. Stay stocked on accessories and spares like nozzles, hose, couplings, metering valves, and more.
Wetblasting has advantages for specific applications:
- Dust suppression, when the priority is suppressing dust for environmental safety and regulatory compliance. Especially useful if you’re abrasive blasting in confined, urban, or residential areas.
- Reduced dust output = increased operator visibility and less cleanup time = higher productivity.
- Superior surface finish: Wetblasting flushes abrasive off the blasting surface so you then can coat a clean surface without risking coating failure caused by contaminants.
Check our complete line of portable wetblast systems: all-in-one units, dry-blast machine conversion kits, and handheld touchup tools—which all also can dry blast, wash down, and air dry surfaces—so with a single piece of equipment you can do more types of jobs.
Internal Pipe Cleaning Tools
360° blast patterns ensure uniform blast coverage and consistent surface profiles on pipe interiors.
Pipe Pro XL and Spin-Blast – For large pipes with 8” to 60” IDs.
Hollo-Blast and Hollo-Blast Jr. – For small pipes with 3/4” to 12” IDs.
Increase Productivity – The 360°blast pattern enables all Clemco Pipe Tools to abrasive blast faster than manually blasting with one operator, increasing productivity —with higher-quality results.
Save Time and Money – You no longer need additional equipment to mechanically rotate pipes or to manually rotate pipes because of these tools’ 360° blast patterns, saving you money and time.
Handheld Suction Blasting Tools
For small, touchup, and last-minute jobs. Ideal for when a full-size blast machine is more than you need.
PowerGun – Ideal for blasting in small or confined spaces, on scaffolding or other elevated work areas, in difficult-to-reach and maneuver-in spaces, and when you’re blasting with a limited air supply. Also great for rental yards to keep in stock.
PowerGun H2O – Same benefits of the PowerGun, but it also easily switches between wet and dry blasting with the twist of a knob.
- SG-300 Suction Gun – When you need a tool that you can grab from your shop on a moment’s notice, that’s inexpensive to purchase and operate, that’s easy to use, and that doesn’t take up much space. Great for farms, welding and machine shops, home hobbyists, residential projects, and rental yards.

Abrasive blasting (formerly known as sandblasting) also is called grit blasting, bead blasting, media blasting, soda blasting, dry blasting, sponge blasting, shot blasting, and shot peening. However, sand should never be used when abrasive blasting because breathing abrasive containing crystalline (free) silica can lead to serious or fatal lung disease.
