Matching a Compressor to your Wetblast Machine
In order to get the most from the Dana-Ridge wetblast system, it is a good idea to have a compressor that allows the full capabilities of the wetblast unit to be realised.
The volume of available air (CFM/LPM)* is as important as the pressure (Psi/Bar). With these machines there’s no need to exceed 6.2bar (90psi). It won’t harm the machine at all but it will cause increased media usage, reducing the processing advantages.
The air-jets are large enough to allow atomization of the slurry and so the free air delivery is important.
*CFM= Cubic Feet per Minute, LPM = Litres Per Minute
There are a few options when it comes to compressed air :-
Note: The above advice is general in nature and is only to be used as a guide. When choosing a compressor for your specific workshop/factory circumstances always heed the advice of the compressor manufacturer/supplier.
