New pot, yesIf I have a complete sandblasting setup...If I wanted to integrate soda blasting into my business, would I just need to get a new pot and hoses?
Yes you can set up a chemco pot to meter bi carb all that is required is a thompson type valve and where the airline goes into the pot just before the T you have to put a ball type valve to cause a deviation of pressure. Lower pressure to the pot than going to the media valve.Great post nbj. You know your stuff. Hard to wrong with anything clemco, great products, great service, great american people. I just wonder if they've gotten the capability to meter fines yet. I've not blasted in a while, so I don't know.
I've always viewed marthens/marco/etc. as little more than a low grade chinese walmart as once they lowball enough to kick everyone else out, they set the market rate a little higher and now have made enough money to make their own. Come in monday morning and on your desk is their gomer fax bombings are there, waiting for you...
That makes sense, but with the choke valve, good air and good abrasive, one really shouldn't need differential pressure. If they do need applications for that, then they need to buy things like a soda pot where one can blast at low enough PSI to strip paint of beer cans and not dent them. Oh, they're empty.Lower pressure to the pot than going to the media valve.
What kinda glass?What will happen if you put glass in your soda pot? I just don't see why I cant run glass through my pot.
My soda blast pot is set up for just soda, it's the grit shut off ballvalve keeps it from using glass or anything course. Plus the inside is more fine tuned for soda .I have been told that you couldn't run anything but soda through a soda pot. But I can't figure out why that is.
