The separate power pack includes a media grading and waste-dust separator cyclone mounted above a 30 litres pressure feed pot.

Dust Extractor

  • DCE Unimaster UMA152K5
  • Shaker motor
  • 2.2kW. // 3Hp
  • 15² meters of filter area.

The Ventus has the ability to blast at up to 100psi with a wide range of abrasives and would have an average
consumption of 82cfm at this pressure with a average size nozzle.

The sophisticated cyclone system enables the cut point of the separation of reusable abrasive from waste to be accurately set allowing maximum separation of the reusable abrasive and the waste dust.

With the aerated feed system the abrasive blasting stream can be set accurately and consistently even at low blasting pressures making this a very versatile machine.

What is Shot Blasting?

Shot Blasting can be used as a catch all term for a wide range of similar industrial processes. It is also called abrasive cleaning or abrasive surface finishing. During the shot blasting process a media material is fired at an object to remove remove burrs, flashing, paint, scale or rust and clean and smooth (or sometimes intentionally roughen) the surface.

There are several mechanical methods used to propel the media material including using compressed air or water streams, or airless methods such as wheel blasting.

The media used also differs depending on the results needed but the catch all term is shot, hence shot blasting. The shape, size and weight of the media will determine the outcome. Frequently a metal shot is used including steel grit, copper shots, and aluminum pellets. Some methods of shot blasting use silica sand (sand blasting - not in some countries due to health risks), glass beads (bead blasting), sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) or crushed nuts shells or kernels.
