While a decrease in pressure can make a significant difference to blasting effectively, an INCREASE in pressure can also make a BIG difference.
If you take the standard time-tested level of 100psi Blasting and increase it to 125psi, what will it do for your blasting speed? You may increase it by as much as 38%!
What does 38% actually mean? It means you can blast a lot more in 4 days than you used to do in 5 days. Or it's like having a second blaster working with you 2 days a week for FREE! And that of course means you can make a lot more profit!
Before increasing the pressure in your blasting system, ensure all equipment – compressor, blast pot, hoses and fittings are pressure rated to the working pressure required.
Operators may need additional training to move the nozzle faster and hold the hose in such a way to minimize back thrust effect.
