External abrasive storage in abrasive blast cabinets

External Abrasive Storage in Blast Cabinets

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.
