Blizzard Stage III Direct Pressure Soda

The Blizzard™ Stage III sandblasting cabinet is made with 100% welded 12- and 14-gauge cold rolled steel. The Blizzard design pre-collects the used soda before it enters the dust collector and stores it contained in an outside drum. 90% of the used soda never reaches the dust collector making the dust collector size nine times larger and this sets the Blizzard apart as one of the best soda blasters on the market.

The Blizzard Soda Blaster Stage III is the most advanced soda blasting MediaBlaster® cabinet available today. Look to the Cobra Stage I and N-200 Stage II for less costly design that still pre-separate the used soda based on daily machine duty cycle.

The Blizzard Stage III Soda Blast Machine is industrial sandblasting equipment designed for Production capacity applications requiring bicarbonate (baking Soda) and wheat starch abrasives using 12 to 40 cfm of compressed air. Baking Soda abrasives typically don't alter the surface of the substrate being cleaned and they also have the unique ability to be soluble in almost all fluids eliminating contamination.

Dust collector maintenance and cabinet visibility are two common complaints that occur when using soda. The Blizzard machine solves these problems with its unique used soda pre-separator system and automatic timed reverse pulse easy cleaning dust collector while in operation that also include manual pulse over-ride controls and pneumatic vibrator cleaning cycle when not operating. All Media Blast soda blasting machines use GhostFlow® soda delivery for superior cabinet visibility.

Not all soda blast cabinets are the same, and if you want to maintain cabinet visibility and collect the used soda outside the dust collector, the Blizzard is the only machine for you. The standard Blizzard mediablaster can also be purchased with the free standing, even larger, Media Blast® automatic timed reverse pulse cleaning, 880 sq.ft dust collector. If you are new to soda cabinets you may not understand that over 90% pre-capture of the used soda in all Media Blast models makes the dust collector nine, (9), times larger by never having the used soda enter the dust collector.

Dry, direct pressure soda blaster

Air Specs:

20-35 cfm

Compressed Air Usage:

14 to 35 cfm at 60 psi using a 1/8″ or 3/16″ ID nozzle size

Suggested Air Compressor:

The standard suggested nozzle size for the Blizzard is 3/16″ ID using 40 cfm at 80 psi. Soda is best when delivered in very small amounts, flooding the soda delivery can slow down the cleaning process.

Pro Tip: Never buy a compressor using the displacement cfm number, always use the second cfm volume number listed with 90-100 psi inside the tank, because tank pressure reduces performance.
