Media Blast’s Hobby Blast abrasive blaster is a top-loading blasting cabinet that uses siphon abrasive delivery and requires 12 cfm of compressed air. To accommodate close-fitting surroundings, this unit allows for bench top or wall mounting. This machine is designed for small cleaning applications such as hand-held tools, medical tool remanufacturing and auto parts. Continue reading Hobby Blast Abrasive Blasting Cabinet
The Charger Direct Pressure Abrasive Blast Cabinet is designed for Production operation, which we consider one (1) hour or more of daily machine operation using a production gun size consuming about 45 cfm of compressed air. The capacity to store dust with ease of service is what makes this machine the right choice for Production operation. Additionally, a larger dual filter option is available for higher daily operation or larger abrasive gun size. Continue reading Charger Direct Pressure Blasting Cabinet Spotlight
The Power Peen abrasive blast cabinet is a Direct Pressure blast machine designed for Production applications, which we classify as planned machine operation of one or more hours each day. It is designed to use heavy blasting media to achieve the high frictional heat required in through-hole part blasting and blind-hole cleaning. The Power Peen machine model requires 25 to 80 cfm of compressed air and includes a 1.0 cubic foot ASME coded Pressure Pot complete with pressure pot access port for service.

What do we mean by maximum abrasive velocity? Simply put, it’s the fastest you can propel abrasive against a part without the abrasive exploding into smaller, useless pieces.
It’s the compressed air that actually powers the blasting for any directional abrasive blasting cabinet or hand held gun. Whether you’re using a siphon or direct pressure abrasive delivery method, you’re going to need the right air compressor for your application.
Pro Tip: If you’re not sure which machine you have, or need, our Buying Guide can help you choose the right delivery method to fit your needs. Continue reading 5 Compressed Air Buying Tips for At-Home Sandblasting
The Hailstorm by Media Blast is a direct pressure sandblast cabinet designed for use with plastic abrasive and includes many features specific to working with this abrasive medium. This means you don’t need to rely on information about upgrades or adding additional options to a direct pressure machine to make it work correctly using plastic abrasive. The Hailstorm will also work with many other abrasive types but specifically designed for plastic media. This media blaster is ideal for production applications, those that require one or more hours of daily operation. Continue reading Media Blast Hailstorm Blast Cabinet
The PowerStrip by Media Blast is a direct pressure blast cabinet that uses a pressure pot assembly to create direct pressure abrasive delivery. It also includes a pneumatic conveyor that removes the abrasive from the cabinet each time it exits the blasting nozzle. This design allows any pressure pot size to be used to extend pot run time before the pot needs to be re-filled.
Direct Pressure abrasive delivery is a process that uses a pressure pot to pneumatically push abrasive to the blasting nozzle inside a blast cabinet. Continue reading What is Direct Pressure Abrasive Delivery?
External abrasive storage in abrasive blast cabinets refers to situations where abrasive is stored outside of the blast cabinet. In a direct pressure abrasive delivery system where a pressure pot and the external abrasive storage are used, all the abrasive is removed from inside the cabinet each time it exits the nozzle which allows the use of many different pressure pot sizes. Because the pot is sealed when blasting, it must stop blasting to refill the pot. As you can imagine, running more than one nozzle on any pressure pot means the pot empties faster. When the pot is filled again and re-pressurizing, operation downtime brings production to a standstill. This is why most automated machines use siphon delivery that uses no pressure pot assembly.
