Borum SB215 20Litre Blasting Hopper Kit (Sand Blaster)

The Siphon Fed Borum Blasting Hopper is a highly efficient blast machine perfect for the one man business where compressed air volume is a major concern. This machine is ideal for small sized projects and produces a uniform surface texture, increasing a surface profile for better bonding of coats. It can be used to clean and strip large surfaces utilising a blasting gun connected to the underside of the hopper of loose abrasive. The air hose of the gun is connected directly to an air compressor, whilst the other hose is connected to the underside of the hopper. When the gun is fired, the air serves to create a suction, which pulls the abrasive media from the reservoir up the hose and into the gun to be fired out the barrel. As a result of this system, the abrasive media that is fired out the barrel can be collected and placed back in the hopper to be reused again and again.

Comparison of Siphon and Pressure Abrasive Blasting Systems

There are two basic types of abrasive blasting systems found on the market today, Siphon Fed and Pressure Fed systems. Although both types can be used for sandblasting there are differences in the capabilities and efficiency of the two types. Hopper type gravity fed abrasive blasters are the most basic of all existing sandblasters on the market today.  The advantages of a hopper gravity fed abrasive blaster is the low start-up cost and the use of less air pressure to pickup the abrasive media. Siphon fed tank style sand blasters use a large volume of air to suck the abrasive material from the bottom of the tank to the nozzle.
