CrystalBlast® Artist Station

Crystal Blast Artist Station
Among the innovative features of this model, note the availability of front and side access doors, slit rubber curtain over brushed work port, included pneumatic pot assist abrasive loading circuit included and angled view window.

The CrystalBlast® 4828 Artist Station is a new approach to an old machine design which incorporates many new exciting machine features never before seen in the market.

This machine is designed for sandcarving larger panels, allowing the operator to work the entire part surface using the front brushed operator work port and full width window. Additionally, the unit includes the unique slit rubber curtain that seals against the brushes while allowing the operator to move from one side to the other. Front and side access door combinations can be ordered, eliminating the single front access door, and non-metallic composition bar grates are used to protect parts.

The patented abrasive separator reclaimer is 99.9% effective on 50 micron abrasive and the included pneumatic pot loading circuit helps with fine abrasive re-load back into the pressure pot.

This model is available with optional True negative pressure HEPA after filter with magnahelic monitor gauge for increased collector efficiency.

Technical Information: ARTIST STATION by CrystalBlast®
Machine Type: Direct Pressure Sandcarver for panel carving
Compressed Air Usage: 5.7 cfm @ 30 psi with standard 3/32" nozzle ID or 8.4 cfm @ 30 psi with 1/8" nozzle ID
Suggested Air Compressor:

We recommend a 220-volt single-phase electrical power supply for the compressor with the standard 3/32" nozzle ID. Ask for details when using 1/8" nozzle ID. Air compressors vary greatly, check the cfm output on the compressor being used or visit Air Basics for more information on compressor selection.
Pro Tip: Never buy a compressor using the displacement cfm number, always use the second cfm volume number listed with 90-100 psi inside the tank, because tank pressure reduces performance.

Recommended Abrasive Size: 80 to 240 mesh
Most Used Abrasive Type: Aluminum Oxide & Silicon Carbide
WARNING: Abrasive Restrictions and Warning
Paint Specification: Environmentally friendly, high-grade polyurethane high gloss paint. Standard colors include MBA beige and high gloss light gray. Custom color matching is available using customer supplied color sample, please call 866-204-7068 for pricing.
