Four Tips for Buying an Industrial Media Blaster

How do you find a real, high-quality industrial capacity media blaster®? We’re talking about Blasting Cabinets that operate at the highest cfm air volumes, offer the fastest cleaning speeds, include self-cleaning dust collectors, and create the highest frictional heat for maximum daily production. If these features are important to you, then you may be in the market for an industrial capacity media blaster.

Pro Tip: Wet Blasting Cabinets aren’t just for hobbyists and small automotive shops. We offer wet blasting models that can handle production capacity applications. Contact us for more information about our Hurricane and HydroSlurry® machines.

Don’t Believe Every Industrial Media Blaster You See Online

The internet is full of products, people and services that claim to be better than they really are. This is true of media blasters, too.

  1. One size doesn’t fit all, ever. Each of our seven Industrial machines is offered in various cabinet sizes, allowing buyers to select the right sized cabinet for their space and Every cabinet is either available with our patented internal separator or external separator reclaimer, with pneumatic conveyor, to ensure the most cost-effective model selection.
  2. You get what you pay for. Industrial capacity machines should come standard with several important features that allow the machines to run on extended Daily Duty Cycles (DDC). This is particularly important in a facility that runs multiple shifts each day. The lowest priced media blaster is likely to arrive at your doorstep missing more than one of these key features.
  3. Don’t underestimate the importance of a high-quality separator reclaimer. We have an entire blog post dedicated to these critical machine features, check it out here.
  4. Buy from a reputable manufacturer. There’s a reason the U.S. military uses our machine specs as their gold standard for other manufacturers. At Media Blast® we’re dedicated to helping our customers buy the right machine the first time. It’s this commitment to excellence that has turned our Brand Name into a Trade Name.
