Industry Information

Portable Sand Blasters

Portable sand blasters are mobile machines of varying size and design that utilize high-pressure streams of abrasive materials to clean or otherwise resurface parts and components in industrial, commercial and domestic settings. Sandblasters are used for a wide range of tasks, such as removing coatings, roughening smooth surfaces, smoothing rough surfaces, etching, carving, degreasing, deburrying, peening, deflashing and descaling equipment and parts made of metal, wood, plastic and glass.

The versatility of portable sandblasting equipment allows heavy use of these mechanisms in automotive, shipbuilding, construction, agriculture, industrial cleaning and processing, aerospace, decorative design, woodworking and glass industries. Portable sandblasters are particularly useful in industrial and personal settings as they allow a single machine to be used in a variety of locations, moving from workstation to workstation. While smaller models are used to rework small parts such as nuts, bolts, decorative glass, printed circuit boards and engine components, large models handle the resurfacing of ships, bridges, tractors, building components, aircraft and heat exchangers. The method of mobility is heavily dependent upon the size of a given machine. Smaller units can be lightweight and handheld or mounted to benches, pedestals, carts or skids with casters allowing them to roll easily from one worksite to another. Large industrial models, however, are frequently mounted to a trailer or vehicle and then driven from one location to another.

Though design can vary significantly, most portable sandblasters have the same general operating components. Each unit must have a power supply, pressure generator or air compressor, crankshaft or plunger pump, abrasive injector, blaster nozzle, a vessel to hold the abrasive media and in some instances dust collection units or media separators. The system works by compressing air or pressurizing liquid which in turn pushes or pulls an abrasive media out of the containment vessel and through the nozzle. The head of the nozzle directs a stream of highly pressurized materials at the surface to be reworked. While many portable units are operated in an open environment, others have a blast cabinet. This cabinet houses the head of the nozzle and is made of durable metals and plastics that can withstand high pressure blasts of abrasive materials. The object to be sandblasted is placed inside and treated within the cabinet. Alternatively, units without an attached blast area are used on freestanding objects that are too large or cumbersome to be placed in a blast room. Although sandblasting has become the popular term for this particular type of machinery, media blasting is more applicable as silica sand is only one of the many types of both rounded and angular abrasives frequently used. Alternative materials include balled, ground, flaked or granulated particulates of such diverse materials as aluminum, carbide, ceramic, copper, glass, iron, gold, plastic, steel, wood, acrylic and baking soda. As portable sand blasters are often multi-purpose, many have multi-media capabilities as well.
