CrystalBlast® Navigator 72

Crystal Blast Navigator 72
This model accommodates larger items and offers many available options to help with part loading and higher daily operation. There are six cabinet sizes to choose from and larger dust collectors are available for higher duty cycle and or nozzle sizes.

The CrystalBlast® Navigator 72 is designed to be a dual purpose machine — not only a smart part navigation, panel pass-through machine using "Hopper-Less" technology but also a standard sandcarving machine using the pop-up grating.

The Navigator uses new technology to lower the operating height of the part roller track, creating a larger sandcarving zone. The Navigator allows for a more accommodating process area by engineering the part conveyor track to raise and lower, keeping the sandcarving area centered. The Navigator comes standard with an 8' track section but is available in various tracks lengths.

This model is a complete system consisting of the cabinet with air-swept floor section, pneumatic abrasive conveyor, cyclone separator reclaimer with attached abrasive storage hopper with a 50 pound ASME Coded pressure pot with access port. In addition the system also includes all the flexible abrasive ducts for connection of the machine to the pressure generator and the pressure generator to the included dust collector. The attached dust collector consists of 440 square feet of certified cartridge filter dust collector using an 1100 cfm exhaust blower and exhaust silencer.

Technical Information: NAVIGATOR 72 by CrystalBlast®
Machine Type: Direct Pressure Sandcarver
Compressed Air Usage: 5.7 cfm @ 30 psi with 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 compressor operation using 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 220 mesh
Most Used Abrasive Type: Aluminum Oxide and 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.
