Abstract:

Abrasive blasting is recognized as the most effective means of obtaining the correct surface cleanliness and surface profile. Careful attention to all the components of an abrasive blasting system, including the air supply, the abrasive blast equipment, the abrasive, and the expertise of the operator, can assure that any abrasive blasting operation obtains its maximum level of efficiency. The components of the equipment are discussed, and include the aircompressor, abrasive blast machine, and nozzles. Abrasive selection, which is determined by the scope of the job, the job location, and the desired surface finish, is also discussed. It is noted that operators must be properly trained and protected from the health and safety hazards of abrasive blasting. The effect of nozzle orifice size on air flow and horsepower requirements of the compressor are tabulated, as well as the effect on changes in hose I.D. on inner area of hose. The production rates for blasting on steel surfaces with various degrees of cleanliness and different nozzle sizes are also tabulated.
