NOTE: * Abrasive Cut-off (ACS) is optional.
MSV, FSV, and Lo-Pot abrasive metering valves are suitable for blasting with mineral and slag expendable media. The Sentinel metering valve
handles all common media including steel grit.
** 10 cu. ft. machines manufactured before 1986 use different pop-up valve and seat. Consult your Clemco distributor for details.
Remote Controls:
Remote control systems have valves matched in size to the blast machine piping. Remote Control System styles vary to suit the blasting operation
or application. Pneumatic Remote Controls work best with blast hose lengths up to 100 ft.; and Electric Remotes, powered electro-pneumatically, are
for hose lengths greater than 100 ft.

Pressure-Release Remotes: Pressurize/depressurize machine by pressing/

Pressure-Release with Abrasive Cut-off: Allows the operator to stop the flow
of abrasive to blow off the surface after blasting.
Pressure-Hold Remotes: Keep the blast machine under pressure for frequent
starting and stopping by the operator for repositioning.
