ACE SIPHON BLAST CABINETS
ACE siphon blast cabinets are economically priced, have a minimum number of moving parts, and require less maintenance than a direct pressure system. So what are Siphon cabinets? Also known as suction cabinets, they permit continuous blasting without pausing to refill abrasive media. Production rates are not as high as with a direct pressure system, but resulting finishes are comparable in quality. If you’re looking for low initial cost and easy maintenance, ACE siphon blast cabinets meet the challenge.
A siphon system works as follows:
• Abrasive is held in the storage hopper of the blast machine and delivered to the suction gun through a media hose.
• Compressed air is brought into the suction gun from the regulator through an air hose.
• As dry and regulated compressed air flows through the air jet, it passes through a mixing chamber before it enters the blast nozzle.
• Negative pressure, or suction, is created in the mixing chamber of the gun body and media is drawn into the blast nozzle, much as water is sucked through a straw.
• Incoming compressed air accelerates the media to a velocity of approximately 60 to 100 CFM, depending upon the air pressure selected. (The CFM of compressed air required to operate a suction gun is determined by the orifice in the air jet combined with the orifice in the blast nozzle.) Standard ACE cabinets require 12 CFM @ 100 psi of delivered air from your air compressor. 25 cfm and 45 cfm blast guns are also available.
