Siphon Abrasive Delivery vs. Direct Pressure

The first dry blasting machines relied on siphon abrasive delivery method which uses a gun to siphon, or pull, the abrasive to the blasting nozzle where it is then boosted in particle velocity and injected into the cabinet. Think of this like using a cue ball to hit the eight ball into the side pocket. While it gets the job done, some energy is lost when the two balls come in contact with each other. Similarly, while siphon delivery equipment is easy to make and simple to operate, it requires higher blasting pressures to achieve maximum abrasive impact velocity.
