Abrasive Blasting 101
Siphon abrasive blasting cabinets and direct pressure abrasive blasting cabinets allow operators to recycle abrasive media for reuse. There are many types of abrasive media, each with its own lifespan. Some abrasive media, like soda, cannot be recycled without a low blasting pressure and GhostFlow™ technology which results in clean parts, cabinet visibility and a functional dust collector. In addition to understanding the nuances of direct pressure and siphon feed blasting, knowing how to properly use your equipment and understanding proper blasting pressures will help properly size your air compressor and get the best performance from abrasive media in your blasting machine.
