AirStop II Deadman Control Handle (Empire)


83 in stock



The Empire style deadman remotely starts and stops blasting by acting as an on/off switch on the twin line.  Pressurized air flows through the twin line (aka duel line) and tells controls at the pot, like a Combo valve, to allow blasting to get done.  The deadman allows this pressurized air to flow.

This dead man is a non-bleed style and also works with Schmidt and Graco machines and many others.   We call it Empire/Schmidt style because it was made for those units.  It has two different size fittings to attach to your twin line.  One side is 1/8″ and the other is 1/4″.  Don’t forget to get some new twinline while you’re at it!!
