7.1 Small and medium-sized blasting pots

A blasting pot is the main element for compressed-air blasting. Its volume determines the amount of abrasive being available and thus the blasting time that can be obtained without interruption of the abrasive blasting process. In general, the following volumes have been accepted for the blasting pots.

Filling volume:
30 l
100 l
140 l
200 l
300 l
500 l

The pot containing 200 l is the variant that is used for the most part. For a complete filling, i.e. about 300 kg of slag-abrasive, a permanent blasting time of about 30 – 45 minutes results if an 8 mm venture jet nozzle will be used.
