Wet Blasting Cabinets Play a Vital Role in Medical Implant Production

One of the best-kept secrets in the abrasive blasting industry is the vital role wet abrasive cabinets play in medical implant production. In fact, wet abrasive blasting cabinets almost became obsolete in favor of dry blasters. A Quick History of Wet Blasting Cabinets Wet abrasive delivery blasting cabinets were the first to be invented, but overtime dry cabinets developed. Wet abrasive sandblasting cabinets were considered too slow because they lacked the frictional heat added by…

Unveiling the Fastest Cleaning Abrasive Blasting Cabinets

The fastest cleaning abrasive blasting cabinets differ depending on your application. It’s not as simple as sizing up your gun size to clean faster. A bigger gun can have enough frictional heat to welt sheet steel. You can almost plasma cut thinner steel with a direct pressure if you turn up the pressure. So, if a bigger gun isn’t the answer, how can we know which are the fastest cleaning abrasive blasting cabinets? The answer…

Efficiency and Safety: Blasting Cabinets with Automatic Cleaning Dust Collectors

Some of the safest and most efficient sandblasters can be blasting cabinets with automatic cleaning dust collectors. This is both with and without HEPA After Filters. This is because no blasting cabinet is dustless, not even a wet blasting cabinet. And machine operators should understand what safety features are required based on the blast cabinet manufacturer, Air Pollution Control Agencies, and OSHA. Do not believe all the lack of safety information you find online.

Pressure vs. Siphon: Which Gives Maximum Media Blast® Cabinet Production Output
