Abrasive media

A large variety of blasting media can be used, each with its own performance and cost trade-offs.

The main categories are:-

  • Expendable abrasives, these are low cost, one use only abrasives.
  • Re-usable abrasives, these are initially more expensive but can be used many times where collection and recovery is available.

We carry a substantial quantity of abrasives including steel, chilled iron, expendable, glass bead and aluminium oxide, both virgin and reclaimed.

Blast pot air requirements

The key to your machine working correctly is the cfm (cubic feet/min) of the available compressor in relation to nozzle size, hose length, and blasting pressure.

The following table indicates this relationship of nozzle size, psi and cfm.
