Sandblasting nozzles for abrasive blast cleaning
- Dry Blasting - using dry abrasives such as coal slag, garnet, aluminum oxide to clean and add profice to hard surfaces like steel.
- Soda Blast Cleaning - uses Formulated Bicarbonate of soda to clean softer surfaces e.g building walls.
Steel Grit Blasting - Uses steel grit, shot etc,
- Wet or slurry blasting. Used when dust control is needed especially when surface being blasted has contaminants in it that might be hazardous.
- Vacuum Blasting - used where containment is needed and recycling is considered a cost saver.
- Dry Ice Blasting - used in the avaiation industry
- Ceramic / Pencil blasting
- Bead blast cleaning
- Peening - to add additional hardness to e.g. steel surfaces.
Everblast's contractor style sandblasting nozzles ( grit blasting nozzles, sandblasting nozzle tips) are supplied with contractor style, industry standard threads: 1-1/4" threads and coarse 2" /metric threads.
Most long venturi carbide sand-blasting nozzles are available with either 1" (25mm) or 1-1/4" (32mm) entry. We also offer a wide range of carbide inserts made from tungsten carbide, boron carbide or ceramic. These inserts are generally used in suction guns operated in sandblasting cabinets and workshops where close up blast cleaning is needed.
We offer a choice of different jackets to protect carbide liners. These range from our 100% armored jackets and threads that provide a very high level of protection against ricochet wear and impact to lighter weight plastic jackets that provide good impact protection for the liner. Our premium range of armor jacketed blast cleaning nozzles provide additional protection for carbide liners against ricochet and work site impact.
Everblast makes a range of High performance XLBC blast cleaning nozzles these are great when large surface areas need blast cleaning and can be used for dry and wet blasting. These light weight nozzles are long venturi style with a boron carbide liner. Nozzles available with either 1-1/4" fine threads or 2" coarse threads.
Wet blasting and soda blast cleaning has become popular as these methods offers a way of controlling dust - please see our range of Wet blasting nozzles. However, like many methods of blast cleaning there are pros and cons. It is important that each blast cleaning company researches to find out which method of blast cleaning (wet or dry) offers optimal results, given the type of surface preparation work being undertaken, abrasives used & coating that may subsequently be applied.
Guide on Estimated Nozzle Service Life in hours.
All figures are indicative and given for nozzle comparison purposes only. Actual nozzle service life will depend on operational variables, such as blast pressure, media dimensions and media particle profile. All figures are approximate.
|Nozzle Liner Material||Steel/Grit Shot (hours)||Expendable Abrasives (Hours)||Aluminum Oxide (Hours)|
|Silicon Carbide/Silicon Nitride||600-1000||400-600||50-100|
|Boron Carbide||1500-2500||750-1500||200 - 1000|
