Refer to SSPC SP1 please. I'm sure that since your working in the QC area of a ship yard that you are also working to SSPC cleanliness standards as well.

It's amazing how this is a sandblasting page and how people from other pages on this forum come in here to goof off. I wonder how many of us sandblasters go to the carpenter and masonry pages to...

A far can I be from the job?

Go with larger CFM's. It will make all the difference in the job. Problem is the availability of that big of a unit in the UK though.

But you could team up two 375's though. Will hush need a...

Keeping as many restrictions down as possible will help. Running 2" hose will help, but I'd say, keeping 100psi at the nozzle with only a 250cfm compressor, will be hard. Not impossible, but the...

Betterblast, that depends on what liner is installed. Many, many Polyurea liners need no primers as long as the surface is abrasive blasted properly. And I would hope that someone with a blasting...

Possibly, would probably need a specialty primer to bond. There would need to be some product testing first though.

If your wanting to run two blast pots with #6 blast nozzles, then your gonna need two 423cfm units or one 850-900cfm unit. This would be at 125psi or 8.5bar.

That model is a coalescent dryer. They work fairly well, but they need to be down stream for them to work. That dryer will do nothing for removing oil from the air supply.

GoGeoBlast, I can assure you that this one was not quoted with a 425cfm compressor. I'm thinking it was with a 185 or 250. I do not remember, but it wasn't a 425. I seen the paperwork, but I...

Absolutely Bob. That number 7 is way too big for your 185, so your abrasive composition goes up and productivity goes down. Your nozzle is able to flow more air than your compressor can put out. ...
