A Suction Blaster sucks up the glass beads into the gun and blows it out at speed to blast rusty or stained parts to give a semi polished finish. This can be used to clean alloy, steel or cast iron parts.
A pressure blaster has a pressure pot in which the beads are held but when pressurized forces the beads out of the nozzle at 3 1/2 times faster than the suction blaster thereby completing the job 3 1/2 times faster and the finish can be varied from very fine to coarse as required.
Both these units require a dust collector of suitable quality. A drum type dust collector can be used on a light duty suction blaster but a 600CFM dust collector is more suitable for a Pressure Blaster, as the extra speed produces the same amount of dust but much faster, therefore it needs to be more efficient to maintain good air quality for your staff and also not to have abrasive dust getting into other machinery on site causing other issues.
The sizes range from 1000mm X 600mm, 800mm X 800mm, 1200mm X 900mm, 1500mm X 1200mm and all are available with suitable dust collectors.
We also supply glass beads, garnet and other consumables for Bead Blast Cabinets.
