Everblast Manufactures and supplies carbide abrasive blast cleaning / sandblasting nozzles. Offered is a large range of carbide nozzles incorporating different wear materials including tungsten carbide, Silicon carbide, boron carbide, Sylacon and Aluminum oxide Ceramics. Everblast Carbide abrasive blast cleaning nozzles are used in most surface preparation applications. Wherever a surface needs cleaning using agressive blasting media you should use a wear resistant carbide nozzle. Nozzles are available in a variety of configurations: long, medium and short venturi, in brass, aluminum or plastic jackets. Everblast Sandblasting Nozzles are supplied complete with industry standard threads. Everblast carbide nozzles are offered with several different industry standard thread styles. Nozzle thread styles available are 1-1/4" NPSM, 2" UNC, 3/4" NPSM. 2" UNC threaded nozzles are widely used outside North America. 2" UNC threads are knbown by various names including "Contractor threads", "coarse threads" and "metric threads". We also offer flanges as a substitute for threads on some tungsten carbide nozzles. These flanged nozzles need a special nozzle holders. Our long venturi and medium venturi carbide sand-blasting nozzles are available with either 1" (25mm) or 1-1/4" (32mm) entry. 1-1/4" entry
Carbide abrasive blast cleaning - sand blasting nozzles are used throughout industry and are an important part of the sandblasting system. Sandblasting (abrasive blast cleaning) is used for cleaning and preparation of steel and other surfaces prior to painting and/or finishing. Abrasive Blast Cleaning is used everywhere for cleaning and surface preparation from small delicate parts to ships hulls. Airplane surfaces, dental parts, plastic parts, fiberglass structures, gears, surgical instruments, glass etching, monument work...to name a few.
To maximize productivity of abrasive blast cleaning system it is important to select correct carbide nozzle for media being used. It is also important to select carbide nozzle with bore to suit compressed air supply and required nozzle exit velocity. Nozzles should not constrict air and abrasive flow by going from a larger hose I.D. to a smaller nozzle entrance size.
Carbide nozzles are tools and should be looked after and protected from damage at work site. All carbide nozzles should be inspected daily for condition. Please see our guide to Good Nozzle Practice for more important information on this.
Carbide Sandblasting nozzles and ceramics are available through our network of domestic and international distributors. Everblast Distributors focus on the abrasive blast cleaning industry and carry a range of sandblasting equipment and supplies e.g. compressors, sandblasting hose, couplings, nozzle holders, sandblasting abrasives, blast pots, blast hose, cabinets, replacement parts for sandblasting equipment, sandblast helmets, replacement lenses and other sandblasting related supplies and equipment. If you are looking for a distributor please call us.
Tungsten carbide nozzles are the most commonly used nozzles in the sandblasting / abrasive blast cleaning industry. They are tough and are best suited for use in harsh work site conditions. Tungsten carbide nozzles are economical and work well with most abrasives. If you want light weight carbide nozzles for use with the same media we offer Silicon carbide blast cleaning nozzles. Cost is higher than a comparable tungsten carbide nozzle but Silicon carbide offers a longer wear life than tungsten carbide - when used with comparable media. Everblast Silicon carbide nozzles are specially manufactured to include enhanced liner protection. Our two top of the line nozzles as far as wear life goes, are Sylacon and Boron carbide lined nozzles, these are more expensive than Silicon carbide but offer a much longer wear life. Either of these two nozzle style and can be used when blast cleaning with Aluminum oxide or similar aggressive media. * Silicon carbide and Boron carbide have a much longer wear life than tungsten carbide nozzles but the trade off is that both these materials are more brittle than tungsten carbide.
Guide on Estimated Nozzle Service Life in hours.
All figures are indicative and given for nozzle comparison purposes only. Actual nozzle service life will depend on operational variables, such as blast pressure, media dimensions and media particle profile. All figures are approximate.
|Nozzle Liner Material||Stee/Grit Shot (hours)||Expendable Abrasives (Hours)||Aluminum Oxide (Hours)|
|Silicon Carbide/Silicon Nitride||600-1000||400-600||50-100|
For close up blast cleaning and cabinet cleaning applications we offer a range of medium venturi and short straight bore carbide nozzles and carbide gun inserts made from Tungsten carbide, boron carbide and ceramics.
Our most unique nozzle is the Curvo Blast ™ nozzle incorporating a single piece construction curved liner. Our Curvo-Blast ™ nozzle is in our opinion one of the best curved nozzles available since it provides long wear life coupled with ability to direct abrasive flow into difficult to reach areas.
