Clemco Abrasive Metering Valves

GritWizard

One Valve Has You Covered

Versatility

You don’t need to stockpile spares or a collection of valves for different media. The GritWizard is your go-to valve for all common media types and applications—out-of-the-box without modifications, for industrial and contractor jobs.

Performance

The GritWizard’s optimal media flow ensures a consistent surface finish while maximizing productivity. You also can adjust media flow while the valve is actuated, so you don’t waste time and media.

Simplicity and Durability

The GritWizard is simple to maintain and repair, with 60% fewer wear parts, and its durable enough to last 12 times longer, so you stay in the field and out of the shop.

You Don’t Need Magic

You don’t need to be a wizard to perform blasting magic. You only need the GritWizard. Your job just got easier—if you’ve got a GritWizard.

Auto Quantum (AQV) and Manual Quantum (MQV) Abrasive Metering Valves

Designed for 2-cuft and Larger Machines

Clemco metering valves are the tried-and-true workhorses of the abrasive blasting industry. Clemco’s designs are widely imitated, especially the designs for its AQV and MQV valves.

Meters All Common Blast Media

  • From coarse steel grit to slag to glass bead.
  • This flexibility reduces downtime between jobs that require different blast media.
  • Just empty the blast machine, pour in the new media, and start blasting—regardless of the application.

Abrasive Flows at 45° into Air Stream

  • The natural way to uniformly mix air and abrasive.
  • Eliminates premature wear found in 90° systems.

Easy to Operate and Maintain

  • Metering plate, which receives most of the wear, can be replaced in the field in minutes with standard tools.
  • Actuator has a built-in fail-to-safe feature that stops the flow of abrasive if the signal from the remote control handle is interrupted.
  • Metering and valve actuation are separate functions. The simple metering section usually all that’s needed for pressure-release applications.

Rugged and Durable

  • All parts normally exposed to abrasive flow made from durable, wear-resistant material.
  • Hardened-steel metering plate precisely controls flow of abrasive, and its adjustment knob stands up to real world use and abuse.

Remote Controls: Pressure Release or Pressure Hold

  • Automatic (AQV)
    Offered as pressure hold or as pressure release, and each available with an abrasive cutoff system (ACS).
  • Manual (MQV)
    Offered as pressure release.

Compatibility

Quantum Valves and Millennium Remote Controls operate at the same pressures and share common air fittings­—nothing to adapt, no bushings to reduce, no orifice fittings to mismatch.
