fresh air supply
 
I was fortunate enough to come across a clemco apollo 60 sandblasting hood with the 3 ft. hose. Does anybody have any recomendations for an air supply? I was thinking of teeing into the line off the compressor. I gotta keep on a budget but really value my lungs.......Steve

DO NOT TEE off the air compressor line. As the air compressor gets hot from running it can burn crankcase oil off the piston rings which adds carbon monoxide to the supplied air:pain:

I have one of these that I use for painting. Works great for paint. I would be worried about the abrasive getting into the system and destroying the motor. I've never used fresh air for abrasive blasting. I've always used a respirator, and never used sand.

You don't want pump in same room where you paint or sandblast anyways. That's why you have extra hose that way you can have it outside spray booth, etc.

Absolutely!!!! But I've found media from blasting in some pretty weird places. Paint vapors will settle pretty much straight down in the booth or be drawn to the ventilation filter, but media seems to bounce all over the dang place.

I did a bit of research and apparently this particular respirator is designed for use with compressed air. It is the apollo 60 hp. It does however give some guidlines for purifcation. It also came with the cooling air tube
