Sandblasting machines, Can i convert them for use with steel shot?

If you have a Cym blast pot, you can project any type of abrasive, since our equipment is specially designed for this purpose. If you have blast pots from other manufacturers, take into account the following considerations to know if you can use your sandblasting machine for blasting:  

  • The tank metering valves to be used must be suitable for blasting. Otherwise, it is possible to replace the metering valve as long as the dimensions of the orifice and the connecting thread allow it.
  • The hoses and nozzles must be adequate and in good condition. Many equipment is marketed with thin hoses and brittle spouts that, with the use of shot blasting, deteriorate rapidly
  • For safety reasons it is essential that the hose has a system for remote control of the shot blasting and that the operator works with Specific protective equipment and must also take into account the specific requirements of each abrasive.

  Unlike sand, shot is reusable, so in case of migrating from one system to another, it is necessary to have a closed physical space and a purifier that ensures the cleaning of the abrasive and prevents contamination in the part that Work is underway.  


Advantages of shot blasting

  • Lower operating cost
  • Does not generate health problems.
  • Lower pollution of the environment.

 


Additional Recommendations

When purchasing or modifying a sandblasting or shot blasting hopper, it is essential to keep in mind its general condition. These equipment, in addition to complying with all the design, manufacturing and testing requirements under ASME standards, must not present blows, dents or welds, since when proceeding to pressurization they could cause serious accidents.
