Siphon (aka suction) blast cabinets are the most common type of abrasive delivery system sold in the market today. Inherent advantages over direct pressure systems include wider blast pattern, ease of operation, reduced maintenance and open to atmosphere abrasive storage meaning they are never stopped to refile a pressure pot assembly.
When using the same volume of compressed air and the same abrasive velocity the siphon blast will normally outperform the direct pressure machine when processing standard parts.
Siphon can be the least expensive to purchase and easiest to operate when the application is for normal part processing and cleaning. Media Blast has many Siphon products that come standard with new certified cartridge filtration and a long list of part handling options.
Dry abrasive cabinets are the most common type of blasting cabinet found in the market today. Frictional heat and the ability to use larger and larger gun sizes make dry equipment the fastest cleaning.
Matching the gun size, dust collector size and duty cycle is key to having a clean operation. The Media Blast line of siphon, direct pressure and gravity feed models offer the right model for your application.
Media Blast also offers both internal abrasive storage and external abrasive storage using a pneumatic abrasive conveyor to transfer abrasive outside the cabinet for recycle.
