In wet blasting, a water-abrasive mixture is used resulting in smoother finish and less dust inside cabinet. Water washes away contaminants like grease and oil. In dry blasting these contaminants could cause coagulation of the abrasive and lead to machine failure. That is why wet blasting is often used for refurbishing parts such as motor and compressor parts. As with other Industrial M Series Sandblasting Cabinets, wet blast systems can be pressure or suction.
Pressure-fed wet blast cabinets are designed specifically for production applications where high work output is required, combined with optimum abrasive quality.
Suction-fed wet blast cabinets are designed specifically for production applications where less aggressive surface treatment is required, such as getting smooth surface finishing on different items. Suction-fed blasting is less powerful than pressure-fed blasting, but uses significantly less compressed air.
