CrystalBlast® Pioneer

Crystal Blast Pioneer
Shown with the Optional VAC-110 dust collector upgrade complete with 110 sq.ft. of certified cartridge filter and blower silencer.

The CrystalBlast® Pioneer was designed to fill the needs of two distinctive markets. First, it's an entry-level machine with all the features needed to get you sandcarving with low investment. Second, it's a small, easily cleaned cabinet for facilities that need more than one machine but less than two. This model is beneficial when you want to operate using a different size abrasive and or the application has a high amount of contamination, as is commonly seen with stone and brick.

This cabinet operates on an industrial vacuum dust collector but is also available with one of two optional 110 square foot Media Blast vacuum dust collectors, which come complete with vacuum blower silencers, and 100% welded cabinet construction.

Use this machine during high-volume months to help with increased production needs without investing in another higher cost cabinet.

Technical Information: PIONEER by CrystalBlast® SANDCARVER
Machine Type: Direct Pressure Sandcarver
Compressed Air Usage: 5.7 cfm @ 30 psi
Suggested Air Compressor:

We recommend a 220-volt single-phase electrical power supply for the compressor when using 3/32" nozzle. Nozzles 1/8" ID and larger are not suitable for the Pioneer. 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 150 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.
