  • Quality is what we believe in and quality is what we give our customers.
  • Bridge maintenance is another area of work where Everblast nozzles can be found. Tungsten carbide Angle Nozzles are frequently used to blast clean in hard to reach places. See our Curvo-Blast nozzle for blast cleaning using a curved nozzle.
  • Large Expanses of steel to be cleaned? Then look at our high performance XLBC boron carbide nozzles.
  • Regular maintenance is needed is to keep off shore platforms and their surface coatings in good condition. Blast cleaning is an important part of this maintenance process. Everblast carbide nozzles are used where ever a steel surface needs preparation before painting.
  • Everblast nozzles are used wherever a steel surface needs cleaning and preparation before applying a coating.
  • Blast cleaning of small parts can be done inside blast cabinets. There are many blast cleaning cabinets on the market and most use smaller blast cleaning guns with inserts. We supply a range of inserts for most popular cabinet guns. Please visit our page on cabinet inserts for more information on sizes available.
  • Blast cabinet with a medium length carbide nozzle. Please see our medium length venturi nozzle range for more info (UDSV and UDWSV).
  • External surface and internal bore of steel pipes need blast cleaning before applying a protective coating. There are internal pipe cleaners with carbide nozzles used for internal pipe cleaning. Replacement nozzles for some of these pipe cleaners are available from Everblast. Please see our USB,UBN and UAM series of nozzles. For narrow bore tubes we have developed a lance style nozzle see our MAC 4.
  • Blast cleaning brick and stone work. Suggested nozzles: Double Venturi and/or Water Jet nozzles to reduce dust pollution.

Long Venturi Carbide Nozzles

Tungsten, Boron and Silicon Carbide Nozzles for most industrial applications

Carbide Inserts

Small straight bore tungsten and boron carbide inserts for use in blast cleaning cabinets or with light duty blasting machines.

High Performance Nozzles

Extra Long Venturi, Boron Carbide nozzles used in high production blast cleaning

Water Jet Nozzles

For use in applications where dust supression/control is one of the main concerns.

Curved Nozzle - Curvo Blast

For use where standard forward shooting nozzles are unable to target abrasive stream on to work area e.g. along angle irons.

Small O.D. Pipe cleaning nozzles

For use in cleaning interior of small I.D. Pipes.

Everblast, an Illinois Company, manufactures and supplies carbide lined sandblasting nozzles.  Our extensive range of carbide nozzles, incorporating wear resistant carbide liners, are used by the surface preparation industry worlwide.  Some examples of wear materials available are Tungsten carbide, Silicon carbide, boron carbide, Sylacon and Aluminum oxide Ceramics .   Carbide blast cleaning nozzles are used in many surface preparation applications.  Carbide nozzles are available with different liner configurations e.g.  long, medium and short venturi. Nozzle Jackets are available using a number of materials from brass and aluminum to plastic.  Everblast Sandblasting Nozzles are supplied with industry standard threads. 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 known by various names including  "Contractor threads",  "coarse threads" and "metric threads".   We offer flanged nozzles as an alternative to threads, these nozzles need special nozzle holders.  Long venturi and medium venturi carbide, sand-blasting nozzles are available with either 1" (25mm) or 1-1/4" (32mm) entry.  We supply tungsten carbide inserts as well as Boron carbide inserts. Short - straight bore carbide inserts are used in a variety of inductrial cleaning applications. Carbide inserts are used in sandblasting cabinets, in work shops where close up blast cleaning is needed.


Carbide abrasive blast cleaning nozzles also known as sand blasting nozzles are used throughout industry and are an important part of a sand blasting 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 widely used 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 a carbide nozzle that will be cost effective when used with a specific media.  It is important to use a sand blasting 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 sand blasting 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 Steel/Grit Shot (hours) Expendable Abrasives (Hours)  Aluminum Oxide (Hours)
Ceramic 20-40 10-30 1-4
Tungsten Carbide 500-800 300-400 20-40
Silicon Carbide/Silicon Nitride 600-1000 400-600 50-100
Silicon Composite 1400-2300 700-1450 180-900
Boron Carbide 1500-2500 750-1500  200 - 1000
