How Many Media Blast Cabinet Types Are There?

Media blast cabinet equipment comes in various forms, each designed for specific applications and requirements. At Media Blast & Abrasives we’ve been manufacturing high-quality sandblasting cabinets for nearly half-a-century. So we know what we’re talking about!

Media Blast Cabinet Types

A variety of industries and applications use media blast cabinets today. Each type of cabinet has its advantages and limitations, and the choice depends on many factors. Examples of impacting factors include:

  • The surface material
  • Desired level of surface preparation
  • Environmental considerations
  • Safety requirements

Some Abrasive Blasting Cabinet Types Based on Application and Abrasive Used

  1. Wet – wet blasting applications include critical plating and things that require a chemically clean part surface. Wet blasting leaves no abrasive impregnation into the part surface, and accomplishes aircraft part cleaning with the least surface removal.
  2. Dry – a dry media blast cabinet uses high frictional heat and typically process parts much faster than wet cabinets. 
  3. Siphon Feed – Siphon feed abrasive blasting equipment operates continuously so almost all automated machinery used today is siphon delivery.
  4. Gravity Feed – Gravity feed of fine and ultra-fine abrasive makes abrasive delivery more uniform to the gun.
  5. Direct Pressure – Direct pressure abrasive delivery is especially handy because it can process into and through blind holes. It also removes thick coatings, and pneumatically push large heavy abrasives to the blast gun.
  6. Light Duty – a Light Duty Sandblasting media blast cabinet can operate using air compressors running on 220-volt single-phase electrical power supply. Commercial shops and homes have this kind of power.
  7. General Purpose – These media blasters feature a large, 100% welded cabinet to contain the blast. They use a smaller gun and dust collector for more intermittent machine use. 
  8. Industrial Production – Industrial Sandblasters are designed for quick cleaning, complete with a myriad of options and upgrades geared for daily operation. These optional upgrades are all tailored to the gun size necessary to meet your production numbers.
  9. Micro Industrial – Micro Industrial models manage the flow of smaller amounts of abrasive.
  10. Soda – A soda media blast cabinet is designed to contain the blasting process within an enclosed chamber, allowing for controlled and precise cleaning or stripping of surfaces.
  11. Plastic – Plastic abrasive blasting is a type of abrasive blasting process used for cleaning, stripping, and surface preparation of various materials, particularly sensitive surfaces where traditional abrasive methods might cause damage.
  12. Shot Peening – Shot peening is a specialized surface treatment process. It enhances the fatigue life and resistance to stress corrosion cracking of metal components.

All Media Blast Cabinets are Not Equal 

Our elite line of media blast cabinets is unmatched by other products on the market. We pair each user’s application to the exact cabinet designed for that task. In our machines we ensure the machine will provide the greatest value to the user. And we do this by matching the gun cfm volume, the dust collector filter surface area, blower cfm, and abrasive separator reclaimer. 

To Sum It Up

We manufacture over 170 different machines for Abrasive Blasting using the cabinet to enclose the blasting process for almost Half-Century! If you give us a call then we will help you get the right machine model the first time. You can also visit our Buying Guide which will take you to any of the models you see listed above.
