Schmidt® / Axxiom Portable Blasters

Portable Blasters

 

Schmidt® portable abrasive blasters (blast pots) are safe, high productivity systems designed for use with a wide range of abrasive media. Standard packages are available in 1.5, 3.5, and 6.5 cu. ft. sizes to match your application. The complete line of Schmidt parts and equipment is available through Norton Sandblasting Equipment. We also offer field training, in-house seminars, marketing materials, and service after the sale. Many parts are stocked in our warehouse.

Blasting Productivity

Air volume and pressure are very important. The blasting production rate will increase with higher blasting pressures and decrease with lower blasting pressures. The National Association of Corrosion Engineers data suggests that 1.5% of production is lost for each 1 psi reduction in blast nozzle pressure. Pressure drop through the blast unit itself is normally less than 1 psi with a Schmidt unit, although blast units manufactured by some competitors have pressure loss as high as 12 psi resulting in an 18% loss of production. Air pressure loss can also be avoided by using the shortest possible hose of adequate size. The inside diameter of both the blast hose (other than the whip hose) and the air hose should be approximately three times the diameter of the orifice in the blast nozzle. Standard Schmidt blast units are rated for a maximum pressure of 150 psi.

SchmidtTM portable abrasive blasters are designed and manufactured with quality and ease of operation in mind. Taking in consideration such things as operator ergonomics and operator safety, we are sure you will find all SchmidtTM blasters your choice.
