Already have a siphon abrasive sandblasting cabinet but it is not powerful enough? Sometimes the only answer to a tough abrasive blast situation is a pressure sandblaster option. Because of this, the Cyclone PT-100 SK (Side Kick) pressure pot sandblaster brings pressure power to an existing abrasive blasting cabinet. Included is a 10′ length of sandblasting hose that gives you more reach and fewer moves. Our pressure tanks are ASME certified. We include all the necessary components to connect this unit to an abrasive media or bead blast cabinet.
Although the unit is designed to sit next to your cabinet, the PT 100SK it still comes with easy to roll solid rubber wheels. This makes positioning the unit within your work environment very easy. A long sandblast hose is also included so that you can put the pressure tank near or far from the blasting cabinet.
All sandblasters require an air supply, so be careful when searching for a “portable sandblaster”. We label ours portable because they are easy to roll and have a long hose. You still need to supply any portable unit with air. Our PT-100 and PT-100-SK pressure sandblasters have a 100 US Pound media capacity, so you can put it in place and easily move it on solid rubber wheels.
Pressure Sandblaster vs. Gravity Blasters
Pressure blasting is vastly different from a siphon fed abrasive blaster. A pressure pot sandblaster is given a supply of air. Then, when you are ready, the user opens a blasting valve. After opening the valve, the powerful stream of abrasives hits the target. Once in contact, the abrasives make quick work. Higher pressure done with a pressure sandblaster means higher velocity and faster cleaning, in most circumstances.
Flexible Abrasive Media Choices
Abrasives like white or brown aluminum oxide, glass beads, silicon carbide, or blasting garnet work within our media blast equipment. We supply a full catalog of abrasive media. We do not recommend steel shot and under no circumstances should you ever use sand in an abrasive cabinet. Read more here to learn about the dangers of using sand in an abrasive blasting cabinet.
