Abrasive Blasting 101
At Media Blast & Abrasive, we have a long history of manufacturing high-quality automotive blast cabinets. The restoration automotive market includes boats, motorcycles, quads and anything else that moves. In addition to machines designed for professional auto shops, we offer a complete line of machines specifically designed to meet the unique needs of home hobbyists, weekend warriors and semi-professional extreme athletes. Our abrasive blasters cover everything from wet or dry to siphon or pressure abrasive delivery.
Pro Tip: Buying an inexpensive blast cabinet for a home repair shop can get messy – literally. Often cabinet construction and dust collector design are sacrificed to achieve lower prices. Unfortunately, this typically means spent abrasive ends up outside the cabinet. Not only does this mean more work cleaning up, the headache running the machine can discourage people from using it.
If your project can accommodate a dry blast cabinet, we recommend our Cobra Stage I and II mediablaster®. This unit was designed for general repair shops, in-house maintenance, home shops and automotive repair shops when compressed air is limited to air compressors operating on 220-volt single phase power that is normally limited to 25 cfm maximum. The advanced cartridge filter technology makes the Cobra machines best in their field without considering our larger, much higher, machine for higher daily duty cycles.
For applications that require a wet blast cabinet, Media Blast has you covered. In addition to the high daily machine duty cycle Hurricane, we recently debuted the HydroSlurry™ wet blasting cabinet. The HydroSlurry is designed for use with smaller air compressors but is still a superior, 100% welded, stainless-steel cabinet with negative pressure cabinet chamber creating a cleaner work area. We created this machine specifically for users looking for dustless blasting supplying the cabinet mist filter and blower; smaller part volume and professional results at a lower investment cost.
For many home hobbyists, purchasing a cost-efficient, clean abrasive blasting cabinet goes a long way in achieving self-sufficiency. Our cabinets are designed so that you can conveniently process parts and achieve professional results from the comfort of your home garage.
We offer ten superior automotive blasting cabinets designed to meet the needs of the automotive and recreational vehicle industries. Each of these machines is available in various cabinet sizes and abrasive delivery types. This allows buyers to select the right machine for their application the first time they purchase. Every dry automotive blast cabinet includes our Patented Abrasive Separator Reclaimer used to remove the dust and spent abrasive to maintain the best possible cabinet visibility. See the full list here.
Media Blast® manufactures wet, dry, siphon, direct pressure, micro, plastic, shot peening and soda cabinets! Our superior line of automotive blasting cabinets was created using our extensive experience with home shops, commercial repair and industrial production facilities all using siphon and direct pressure sandblasting cabinets.
