AirStop IV Deadman Control Handle (Empire / Schmidt)


Out of stock



Our AirStop IV deadman control handle is a pneumatically operated, non air-bleed control handle designed for use with Empire, Graco, or Schmidt style systems.  This style dead man is recommended with twin line hose systems up to 100 ft.  If you need to work with longer lengths than that, we suggest going to an electric style deadman.

The 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, or an inlet valve to allow blasting to get done.  The dead man allows this pressurized air to flow.  The AirStop 4 Deadman Control Handle is made to mimic Schmidt style deadman handles with a push button on the side.  You’ll also see this style on the Greener Blast Technologies Blasters.
