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