TheMetalFinisher.com started our new channel “The Metal Finisher TV” and we are featuring our new Abrasive Blast Cabinet Series with Episode 1: Comparing Pressure Blast to Suction Blast. In this video we discussed how each system works, some pro’s & con’s, and then went to the lab to test each with a rusty piece of metal. I was shocked at the results. Typically, pressure blasting in 4-5 times faster, but the Empire Air Blast Suction system gave the Pressure unit a run for its money.
Our next episode will show how to purge abrasive from each unit. Many blasters need to run several different processes requiring different medias/abrasives. To be certain we have no cross-contamination, we will need to properly purge each, as to not leave any abrasive behind.
In the future we will also be showing you various preventative maintenance tips….What you need to look for and what wear items need to be consistently checked. We will also have a “Troubleshooting” Episode where will go over common issues blasters experience, and how you can address them.
