What Are Industrial Capacity Abrasive Blasting Cabinets? 

What Are Industrial Capacity Abrasive Blasting Cabinets? 

If you can believe it, there was a time when Search Engines didn’t have any say in which abrasive blasting cabinets were Industrial Capacity Abrasive Blasting Cabinets. It used to be that the US Military set the bar for Industrial Specifications. 

Industrial Capacity Abrasive Blasting Cabinets for the 21st Century

Today, searching the web for “Industrial Abrasive Blasting Cabinets” shows mostly paid ads for machines. Many of these machines are made of thin steel that a 90 cfm Industrial Gun would quickly destroy. Machines like those usually operate using 12-cfm gun sizes. That’s the same as the air compressor you might use to inflate car tires in your garage. These cabinets typically use a dust collector with a small vacuum blower only capable of moving 100 cfm. Unfortunately that’s almost what the 90 cfm gun introduces into the cabinet. Search engines pick up Descriptive words used and inserted by the manufacturer. Internet researchers usually get products using smart SEO, but not necessarily Industrial Capacity Abrasive Blasting Cabinets.  

Media Blast’s History of Excellence making Industrial Capacity Mediablasters

The government uses Mil-Specs to purchase different types of equipment. Our Industrial Line of Mediablasters offer True up to 100% DDC, Daily Duty Cycle Operation. 

Specifications for Industrial Capacity Abrasive Blasting Cabinets

Giving a blasting cabinet “Industrial Classification” used to require passing two critical tests. 

  1. Cleaning Speed Performance testing evaluated a cabinet’s ability to clean one square foot of Hot Roll Steel down to Bright White Metal in 60 seconds or less using up to 90 Cubic Feet of Compressed Air per minute. 
  2. Dust Collector Performance testing measured the performance of the Dust Collector for Eight Hours of continuous Abrasive Blasting using the Abrasive Type and Size called out in the Purchase Order. 

When these standards were enforced, a manufacturer could be Subject to First Article Inspection. This meant Inspectors visited on-sight and tested machinery to make sure the equipment met all Military Specification Requirements. And if your machine didn’t pass, then you didn’t get paid.
