QuikStop IIS Handle
Most people are familiar with the title idiom; it is commonly used to describe people and teamwork. But this saying also applies when two new modern iterations of established product lines are integrated together to bring synergistic benefits for the blasting operator: enhanced comfort, reduced fatigue, improved ergonomics - all of which lead to improved blasting productivity and reduced operating costs!
After several years of extensive product development and field-testing, Panblast is proud to present two exciting new products that can be ordered today via our distributor/reseller networks:
PanBlast™ AER215 Nuovo Closed Circuit Blaster, incorporating
PanBlast™ QuikStop IIS Remote Control Handle

PanBlast™ AER215 Nuovo Closed Circuit Blaster
The replacement "Nuovo" version of the established AER215 Closed Circuit Blaster addresses several weaknesses of the older design, including the main weakness of extreme operator fatigue due to use of conventional blasting components, which are both heavy and bulky for this application. This traditionally caused periodic production stoppage because the operator has to rest much more frequently than normal and constantly needs to re-balance the blasting head assembly, both in his hands and on his shoulders, resulting in wastage of valuable production time and reduced blasting operator productivity.
The newly launched PanBlast™ AER215 Nuovo Closed Circuit Blaster includes innovative features and benefits such as:
Ultra-efficient "industry's first" integrated multi-pass cyclonic reclaimer and separation system
Lightweight blast & vacuum recovery head with full venturi boron carbide blast nozzle and optional aluminum handle with hose assembly support strap
Multiple quick fit brush heads to suit different blast surface profiles
"Hands-free" blast and vacuum activation/de-activation via the PanBlast™ QuikStop IIS Remote Control Handle
Trolley mount featuring multi-directional stainless steel lockable castor wheels for easy field mobility
Storage rack for coiling blast and vacuum recovery hose assembly during field transport
Storage space for tool box placement and storage hooks for hanging protective face shields or helmets
Modular vacuum recovery and abrasive separation system also sold separately for fitment and use with any certified blast pot
PanBlast™ QuikStop IIS Pneumatic Control Handle
The "IIS" is an enhanced version of the popular QuikStop II Pneumatic Control Handle and is machined from billet aluminum stock with matte black anodized finish for corrosion resistance. Its new chamfer-contoured edges and low profile add to the already feature-packed handle and is the perfect remote control handle to facilitate "hands-free" blast and vacuum operation for the PanBlast™ AER215 Nuovo Closed Circuit Blaster. This is unlike conventional blast and vacuum systems that require the blast operator to continuously hold down the handle lever during operation with one hand.
The upgraded PanBlast™ QuikStop IIS Pneumatic Control Handle is a compact, lightweight and low profile "air bleed" type pneumatic remote control handle, which includes innovative features such as:
Contrast color "fail-safe" ball and strap release activation/de-activation mechanism
Contoured saddle base for easy attachment to blast hose assembly
Durable spring return lever with replaceable rubber plug
A conversion kit is also available for current users of the product who wish to convert to the PanBlast� QuikStop IIS Electric Control Handle, which will further extend remote control distance up to 100 meters (328 feet).
