Elcometer Blast Equipment

“There is an optimum point between speed and grit usage and that is what the blaster should be finding.”

As part of a wider investigation into blast efficiency, Patrick O’Brien, an independent blaster with over thirty years of experience, was asked about the importance of the media valve setting. He explained that there is a ‘sweet spot’ between speed and grit usage which is essential to achieving maximum efficiency.

With this considered, Elcometer’s Abrasive Media Valves are designed with fingertip adjustment so you can precisely control the media flow, even when blasting.

Take a look at this short video to hear Pat discuss the valve setting in more detail and see how the Elcometer media valves provide an efficient solution to his requirements.
