As there are various principles, this is not an easy question to answer.
Generally the following applies:
- Injector blasting is used if there relatively little blasting is required and/or the desired blast intensity is not too high.
- The pressure tank principle is used if larger/multiple products need to be blasted. The intensity is 4-5 times greater than injector blasting.
- Wet blasting is normally used if the products need to be blasted with relatively low intensity.
- For wheel blasting, large and smaller parts can be automatically blasted. The capacity of a wheel blaster is considerably greater than blasting on the pressure tank principle.
