mhester99: I want to get a bead blast setup for blasting brass musical instruments.
How much CFM and psi would i need for that? I see pretty inexpensive sand
blasting tanks on eBay
clayk007: What kind of gun is that?
Gabriel LaCross: It seems that the two of us should talk. I use both processes. Water and
Bead. I know that both do damage if used improperly. Like any abrasive
method of cleaning you have to monitor the volume and PSI. As you can tell
in the video, glass bead is very soft on the tile. Here we are blasting at
40psi. Soft enough to blast your skin with. There are some bead blasters
that blast at around 90-120. This pressure would definitely do damage. I
worked at an abrasive dist. for 6 years. I know both methods
Eddie Olvera: How much CFM is needed. What kind of unit do you use for disbersement of
sunbritepooltile: feel free to look at my video !! pool tilecalcium removal
Gabriel LaCross: Its a 185cfm compressor but too much media causes a big dust cloud and
makes it harder to clean up. Weve done it all ways this seems to be better.
If the pool was not part of this we could do bigger blast zone. But the
pool makes it where we need to do smaller volume
Gabriel LaCross: Try a smaller tip maybe. They have some that are very tiny and some that
are as thick as a pencil. This should help
lumenman: I was hoping to see the before and after, so Mesmerising
CleanPoolTile: Gabe, tell the truth. Does your glass bead damage tile
Gabriel LaCross: Not at all... glass bead is environmentally safe and is no different then
regular elemnts that end up in the water. once the process is done we do go
in a vacuum the entire pool and spa with self contained pump and filter.
This way the customer is not left to deal with it
aquaholic38: Im new at sand blasting, I bought a 10gl. sand blaster, 2 guns and glass
beads media. doesn`t work well. It shoots too much media and cleans
nothing, but when the tank is running out of media and shoots few beads
only, that`s when it works very well. (for few minutes and keep shaking the
tank) If I close the gun to regulate the amount of media, then it shoots
out too weak even at 100 psi at the tank. Any pointers? THANK YOU KINDLY!
Arne Boberg: Not a lot of volume there - a lot of fine-point work. Would a larger
