5 Common Blast Cabinet Dust Collector Problems

Almost all blasting cabinet dust collector problems are related to one of the conditions we examine in this post. Most people buy these machines based on budget and not the machine’s application. This is a mistake. First, an abrasive blasting cabinet’s use can, and probably will, change over time due to an increase in production or simply finding more uses for the machine. Second, if you buy a machine based on cost, you are likely not matching your needs to the blast cabinet’s capabilities. This often results in a variety of issues, including dust collector problems, and ultimately it often negatively affects productivity. Continue reading 5 Common Blast Cabinet Dust Collector Problems

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.
