If you are serious about production blasting – that is, continual production blasting to earn profits each and every day – you’ll need to invest in a serious moisture removal system. Don’t underestimate the benefits of using cool, dry air for blasting. You can actually blast up to 15% faster! You never have to choke your blast machine to clear wet abrasive blockages, and your abrasive metering valve doesn’t need constant adjustments – so you save money on abrasive. The ACS Deliquescent system uses an Aftercooler fan to cool the compressed air – the cool air then flows into a large coalescing tank where the cool air/moisture travels through a bed of Deliquescent tablets that strip the moisture out of the incoming air. Pneumatic fan motor includes filter / regulator / lubricator and muffler, and no additional power required – plug & play! (Electric fan motor also available.) There is negligible pressure loss through the AirPrep™ system thanks to the over-sized Radiator/Heat Exchanger and high-flow piping.

Designed for maximum performance to handle high humidity environments or offer a higher level of moisture removal for critical applications. If your blast operation or jobsite is in a region that experiences wide differences in the daily high and low temperatures, an air dryer is a must to handle the moisture generated in these environments.

BlastOne AirPreps feature a bed of glass marbles underneath the deliquescent tablets, which allow condensed water droplets from the aftercooler radiator to ‘stick’ and drop out of the airstream before they even reach the drying tablets. They also prevent the tablets from being immersed in accumulated water and dissolving prematurely.


Less than 3 psi pressure loss at 40% over stated capacity. Schmidt® AirPrep™ Systems use an over-sized radiator for maximum flow and cooling, it won’t slow you down!


Schmidt® AirPreps™ are skid mounted and have a heavy grating over the radiator to shield the unit from outside forces. The drying tank is hot-drip galvanized for years of rust prevention built in. With regular maintenance, they last forever.
