No... I was at a marina a couple of months back or so and a local guy was blasting a boat bottom with the Dustless Blaster.MediaBlaster - Was the demonstration you saw by MMLJ or an equipment owner? Their videos show some water but not the amount you saw.
In their videos from their website they have a win nozzle on some of them.I am having trouble finding end users using the sandstorm type of pot for references.
If you visit their web site they advertise no clogs. Also, if you watch any of their demo videos, very little mess and water.
Things I like with the sandstorm pot. No electronic panel to fail, All parts are off the shelf and available locally. Others have proprietary parts, and limited local service techs. Geo blaster is twice the price,
Did you ever demo any of them?there are 2 local companies, each with a demo unit.
I can arrange a demo of both the GEO and ECO blasters and will let you my thoughts on each unit.
I may even be able to arrange a demo of the MMJL unit.
Very cool. I look forward to your review of the MMLJ. Please post as early as you can, as I'm looking to buy something right away.I am having a demo of the dustless blaster on monday. I will also be seeing the geo in the next week or two. Right now I am expanding my business ( currently blasting) and relocating to another municipality. The hoops I have to jump through to move the shop and the cost of buying a new reclaim system, filtration system, breathing system, I was looking at $150K+ CAD.
I figure if it works well and less hassle and money, why not look at it as an option?
I know that MMLJ has financing. I would go as large as you are comfortable with money wise. I think these machines offer a flexibility I'm looking for?
They have their 3 different brands. Sodablast systems, Sandstorm and Dustless blasting. Which do you have?I have had two MMJ pots they are great with soda but to get them to flow with heavier abrasives like glass there are flow issues.
You have to stop and start all the time to keep the bloody things going.
That is on the smaller type of blast pots.
I will eventually buy a wet blasting machine for blasting in the wine industry here in Australia.
I will have to check with the EPA to see if I can get away with less containment then what I use when blasting dry.
The Environmental code of practice here in Australia is stupid for blasting it was written to give us free room to do what we want but try and keep things clean but it is also suggesting that we are only able to blast in a booth bloody crazy.
But for the mean time dry blasting is getting me by just fine.
