Charger Direct Pressure

The Charger Direct Pressure Machine by Media Blast® is Industrial sandblasting equipment designed for Automotive Production capacity operations. We consider production operation to be one (1) hour or more of daily machine operation using a production nozzle size consuming about 25 to 90 cfm of compressed air per minute.

This blast cabinet uses direct pressure abrasive delivery with attached pressure pot assembly. The side mounted negative pressure dust collector was designed specifically for the automotive market to save valuable shop floor space. The effortless vibrator pneumatic cleaning cycle assembly ensures a longer machine duty cycle and a cleaner work area with longer blower service life. You can place the machine against any wall where floor space is limited. The replaceable cartridge style filter (MERV Tested and Certified) includes 220 Sq.Ft. of dust storage filter surface and cleans using a semi-automatic vibrator at the flick of an air switch requiring only minutes to clean and minutes to rebuild when filter replacement is needed.

The capacity to store dust with ease of service is what makes this sandblasting cabinet the right choice for Direct Pressure Production Operation. A larger, rear mounted dual filter option is available for higher daily operation or larger abrasive gun sizes.

Direct Pressure Machines have a more concentrated blasting pattern and higher frictional heat than other abrasive delivery methods. They can clean faster but the pattern is smaller in size for the compressed air used. They can offer unique applications such as blind hole cleaning, cross drill ID hole cleaning, shot peening, and more. In addition, they can operate with any abrasive type, plastic to steel shot, glass beads to aluminum oxide.

The Charger also includes the patented adjustable internal separator reclaimer to make sure abrasive recycle is right for the abrasive you are using in your application.

Ask which delivery system is best for your application because we make them all and each type has its own best applications.

Model Name:

Charger

Machine Type:

Industrial equipment for fast industrial work

Abrasive Delivery:

Dry, direct pressure

Air Specs:

25-90 cfm for different nozzle sizes

Compressed Air Usage:

25 to 90 cfm at 80 psi

Suggested Air Compressor:

The standard nozzle size for the Charger is 3/16″ ID using 31 cfm at 60 psi. Smaller and larger nozzle sizes are available for applications with smaller and larger air compressors. Air compressors vary greatly, check the cfm output on the compressor being used or visit Air Basics for more information on compressor selection.
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.
