N-200 GF Siphon Abrasive Blast Cabinet Spotlight

Media Blast’s N-200 GF Siphon abrasive blasting cabinet is a side-loading blasting cabinet that uses siphon abrasive delivery and requires 25-90 cfm of compressed air at 80 psi. This machine is available in many special cabinet sizes but standard in two, the 3636 and 4848, because those sizes are commonly used with turntable assemblies. This sandblasting equipment can operate with almost any abrasive type, but it’s specially designed to use fine and ultra-fine abrasives.

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.
