    ⚠️Trouble shooting/ Pot issues.

    Moisture is simply the most common issue encountered by users.

    Symptoms including erratic flow, spuddering, clogs at the bottom manifold/ hose and or nozzle.

    ⚠️ Extended periods of blasting will cause moisture, EXAMPLE: You start blasting then after a period of time you experience erratic discharge, spuddering, or no media flow.

    *First check nozzle selection make sure your nozzle is matched to your compressors output of PSI and CFM.

    * CFM and compressor go hand in hand, to low CFM and you will experience RECOVERY time. You compressor fails to maintain pressure to your pot, to much air required by your nozzle that your compressor can't keep up. Always select nozzle that is appropriate for your compressor set up.

    * Sift Media ALWAYS.

    Yes it's a hassle, but always sift media even new bagged media.

    Media selection.

    Always use the proper media for your application.

    Refer to the MOHS scale this will help you understand between hard and soft media, rounded, sub-angular and angular.

    ⚡Hard medias= Sand, Coal slag, Aluminum oxide ,10× crushed glass.

    ⚡Soft medias= Sodium Bicarbonate, walnut shells, glass beads, corn cob.

    ☠️ Safety Gear

    Blasting comes with all sorts of hazards. Always use proper safety equipment. Pot blasting:

    Blast in a well ventilated space. Use a high velocity fan to push away airborne particles.

    * Use proper eye, hand, and respiratory protective gear.

    * prior to blasting inspection of your blast pot is a must. Check blast hose for deformities, bulges, cracks or soft spots .

    Check fittings, barbs and ball valves. Check for leaks or pin holes. Media blasting wears items, all items from fittings to nozzle holders will wear.

    ⚠️Adjusting the mix.

    Step one.

    Close ALL Ball Valves. Main, air throttle and media mix ball valve.

    Step two.

    Pressurize your pot. Do not exceed manufacturers recommend PSI ratings. Small pots 60 to 120 most pots have a pressure relief valve set at 125 psi.

    Step three.

    Open the main ball valve. ( main ball valve control) hold nozzle point away from you,

    Step Four.

    Slowly open air throttle ball valve at the same time slowly open media ball valve.

    Do this slowly and gradually.

    Step four.

    See the tip of the nozzle, notice the mix is getting blurry. This is sometimes called the FLAME. The mix should be more air then media.

    Adjusting will provide the best results.

    Common issues are overloading the system. This is done when you open either the air throttle or the media mix valve to much.
