Hailstorm Direct Pressure Plastic

The Hailstorm model includes all the added features for operation using plastic abrasive. This machine is particularly handy for military applications which require plastic stripping when a seller forgets to add important options.

The Hailstorm Direct Pressure MediaBlaster® sandblasting cabinet is a Production capacity machine specifically designed for operation using plastic abrasive. Production machines are ideal for applications requiring one (1) hour or more of daily machine operation.

Plastic abrasive typically does not alter the surface of the substrate being processed and is available in different hardness to compensate for harder and softer parts. This is beneficial when processing parts or removing paints or powder coatings that have a chemical pretreatment underneath the topcoat you want to remain.

The Hailstorm blast cabinet comes complete with a pneumatic abrasive conveyor that works with the special Low Bounce Barrel Separator Reclaimer to retain and recycle the plastic abrasive properly. All Hailstorm units include the larger 1.0 cubic foot ASME coded pressure pot delivery system complete with automatic pressure pot Blow-Down Controls, Magnetic Separator, Anti-Static Kit, ClearView® Window, Window Sweep, 440 square feet of certified cartridge filtration, and more.

Most Hailstorm units included the expanded height top with reduced window slope for processing taller parts that require additional inside cabinet height. Look at the HEPA after filter in available options for machine cell operation.
