powerrodsmike Ok I feel like some kind of troll replying to my own thread, but I have found out a couple of things and thought I would add to it. The air jet is usually 1/2 the size of the media nozzle. If you have a gun with a .094" air jet it will take a .188" media nozzle. The air jet in a cheap gun is located behind the suction port. I have a gun that has a tapered tube that puts the air jet opening forward of the suction port. That one has a .200" air jet so I would surmise that it should have a .400" media nozzle. The solid carbide nozzle that was in it was worn out to over 1/2 ". I wonder what you should be blasting with that one. I still would like to know what are the proper air pressures and which type of media works best with the various size orifices. Thanks for reading this.

bead blast guns and nozzles

Does anyone have information relating to the size and placement relationship of the air jet to the suction tube to the media nozzle in a bead blast gun. Is there a difference in nozzle size for different size or type of media. Also wondering about the air requirements for the different size nozzles. My compressor size isn't an issue, I just would like the info. I recently aquired a big blast cabinet (it needs some pieces to make it work) and I found some industrial blast nozzles that need rebuilding. I tried contacting the manufacturer of this unit but it is a high end industrial unit and they want a fortune for replacement parts. Thanks for reading this.
