Suction blast cabinet is mostly used for light production jobs, and general cleaning of parts and objects. Suction blaster works by using a suction gun to pull blast media through a hose, and deliver that media to a blast nozzle, where it is then propelled at great speed into the cabinet.

What are some Pros of Suction Blast Cabinet?

Suction blast cabinet

  • Lower initial cost. To set up a suction blast cabinet you need less equipment than with a direct pressure system. If budget is a concern, a siphon blast cabinet may be a better choice than a direct pressure cabinet.
  • Suction blasting uses less compressed air. A pressure blast cabinet uses more air than a siphon blast cabinet with the same size blast nozzle. You can see the comparisons of air blast consumption between siphon blast and direct pressure here.
  • Ongoing operating costs are lower. Because direct pressure blasting throws with more force, the erosion of your blast nozzle, glass panels, and other replacement parts is faster than with a siphon blaster. Direct pressure blast cabinets are more aggressive, and will therefore eat up the blasting surfaces more quickly than a siphon blast cabinet.

Cons of Suction Blast Cabinet

  • Slower cleaning speed than direct pressure. Suction blast cabinets operate with lower air pressure than direct pressure. They simply cannot strip and clean as fast as a pressure blast cabinet. For heavy-use industrial blasting applications, a direct pressure cabinet may be a better choice.
  • Cannot push heavy steel shot or grit. Direct pressure units use a pressure pot to propel abrasive blast media. Because direct pressure cabinets can use more force, they can use steel shot or grit for blasting jobs.
  • Slower cleaning and stripping than pressure blasting. In a suction blast cabinet, the blast media pushes at a lighter pressure and speed. Direct pressure cabinets are about 3 to 4 times faster at blasting residue and coatings from objects than traditional siphon blast cabinets.
  • More difficult to strip heavy residue or coatings from a surface. Siphon blast cabinets are less aggressive than pressure blast cabinets. Heavy deposits may be more difficult to remove from a surface in a suction blast cabinet.
