Surface Preparation Module

J.Reid Engineering’s dedication to quality has generated a reputation for reliability, longevity and well-designed efficient products.

Shot blasting irregular shaped components has often taken place without much thought to health and safety, sometimes outdoors in an uncontrolled environment.

With increasing concerns about operator safety and environmental impact, J.Reid Engineering has the solution in the form of their ‘Containablast’ surface preparation module.

The basis of our portable ‘Containablast’ units is a new robust shipping container which lends itself perfectly for conversion. The container is then modified to house a host of equipment providing a self contained portable blast room, simply requiring compressed air and electrical connections.

Each unit is fully assembled at our works for inspection prior to delivery. Comprehensive operator training can be undertake at our works or your site when the unit is installed. Click the above image to watch video of the installation and operation of the Containablast unit.
