Airblast machines can take the form of a dry blastroom /cabinet or wet blast cabinets. During dry blasting (dry free flowing media) and wet blasting (media water mix) the blast media is pneumatically accelerated by compressed air and projected by nozzles onto the component.
The blasting task determines the selection of dry/wet blast and abrasive media to be utilized.
In both air and wet blasting the blast nozzles can be installed in fixed positions or can be operated manually or by automatic nozzle manipulators or robots.
