About the PanBlast AirFlo Deadman Control Handle - NPT
The PanBlast™ AirFlo Pneumatic Control Handle is a bleed-type handle, designed to operate with a twinline system to remotely supply and activate air to the blast pot remote control valves. The NPT configuration is compatible with most U.S. blasting equipment.
This is a bleeder type deadman handle. A bleeder type handles in un-activated state provides a constant air bleed to atmosphere with a hissing sound. Note that dirt and grease buildup inside the twinline (deadman control) hose can plug the bleed hole and cause the blast unit to be activated. Bleeder type deadman handles are therefore less safe compared to non-bleed deadman handles.
