SELECTING A BLAST NOZZLE - IT’S AS EASY AS 1, 2, 3 - For more information click here
Elcometer’s range of high performance blast nozzles are both rugged and lightweight and are designed to minimise operator fatigue.
Using a larger nozzle orifice size produces a greater blast coverage area but requires a greater air capacity (cfm or m3/min) to ‘power’ the nozzle. A smaller nozzle size will typically produce a narrower blast pattern and consume less air. To maximise the potential benefits of using a larger nozzle diameter it is essential to ‘supply’ the nozzle with the correct air & media mix at sufficient speed and pressure. The choice of nozzle is therefore determined by the available air flow produced by the compressor. If a larger nozzle is chosen then to blast efficiently, a higher air capacity is required.
