Media Blast and Abrasives - Abrasive Blast Cabinets Media Blast & Abrasive Inc. is a manufacturer of one of the largest lines of quality Abrasive Blast Cabinets , better known as Sandblast Cabinet, Bead Blast Cabinet, and yes, even just plain Blast Cabinet. Manufacturing since 1977 , MBA has built a reputation based on superior visibility, the smallest footprint with the largest dust collector filter surface. In addition, MBA has the least amount of maintenance and the most included standard features of any blast cabinet on the market. What this offers when choosing a sandblaster is value for dollar . MBA builds over 100 standard models and sizes of siphon blast cabinets ( N-200 and N-200 Cyclone ), pressure blast cabinets ( Power Peen and Power Strip ), wet blast cabinets ( Hurricane ), plastic media blast cabinets ( Hailstorm ), soda blast cabinets ( Blizzard ), and light duty bead blast cabinets ( Viper and Space Saver ), as well as custom and automated abrasive blast cabinets. Siphon vs. Pressure Pot? Siphon vs. pressure pot is possibly one of the most misunderstood facts in the blasting industry today. Company product lines often define the definition of this question. Media Blast manufactures all types of abrasive delivery cabinets, wet, dry, siphon, gravity feed and direct pressure. Portable pots and cabinets should be considered separately and the information that follows is critical for proper selection of stationary blasting cabinets only. In addition, abrasive type must be considered. Compressed air is responsible for the actual part-cleaning rate not abrasive delivery type. Compressed air is needed to deliver the abrasive to the part and the volume of compressed air will establish how much abrasive, in pounds per minute, and the frictional heat generated, in degrees Fahrenheit. More compressed air volume in cubic feet per minute gets you more pounds per minute of abrasive against the part. This increases the frictional heat of the abrasive and produces the almost geometric faster cleaning rate when th
