Factors to Consider When Buying a Blast Cabinet
Size Does Matter - What to Look for
- Make sure your blast cabinet is big enough to handle your current and future needs
- Check out interior (working area) dimensions. Be aware that some manufacturer's exaggerate the size of their cabinets by mentioning only exterior dimensions
- Single side door cabinets have a door only on one side. This may limit placement options in the shop
- Top-loading cabinets are loaded from the top
- Clamshell designs are split in the middle (like a clamshell) for loading
Does a Larger Cabinet Mean Using a Larger Compressor?
- Compressor requirements are determined by the size of the nozzle you select for your cabinet
- Make sure that you have a selection of nozzles to choose from in order to optimize performance of your cabinet and compressor
- Our cabinets require a minimum of 7 cfm at 80 psi.
Cabinet Construction - What Should I Look for?
- Eastwood's blast cabinets are constructed with heavier-gauge sheet metal than most cabinets.
- Large polyethylene and bench top cabinet are lighter than metal cabinets.
- Eastwood blast cabinets use peel-off lens covers that are easy to change so you can always clearly see what you are working on.
