Tungsten Carbide nozzle # 5 for sandblasting with thermoplastic jacket and threads.

Tungsten Carbide nozzle # 5, with venturi performance.  Blast cleaning nozzle has 5/16″ bore and 1″ entry.  Nozzle is fitted with thermoplastic jacket and 1-1/4″ industry standard fine threads. Jacket is designed and fitted with grooves to give help operator  grip nozzle. Carbide Nozzle is supplied complete with rubber gasket / carbide entrance protection.  Looking for brass threads then look at our UDLB-5BA, same nozzle but with  alloy  1-1/4″ fine threads.

Looking for #5  sandblasting nozzle for blast cleaning with aggressive media like aluminum oxide, then take a look at Everblast’s EVBC-5.

Effects of a worn nozzle on blast cleaning performance and productivity:

Abrasive Blast cleaning is an important but costly process  for removal of  coatings and/or contaminants.  Speeding up removal process and reducing costs by maintaining or improving system efficiency  is important.

There are four main ways in which a blast system shows, over time, it is losing efficiency.

These are:

  • (1) Using more abrasive to achieve same result as system had been getting at an earlier stage.
  • (2) Increasing demand on compressor – using more CFM or air.
  • (3) Not removing coating or blast cleaning as fast as it was originally.
  • (4) Losing nozzle pressure.
What could be causing any or all above problems? The Answer 9 times out of 10, is a blast nozzle with a worn out bore.

When a sandblasting nozzle wears by 1/16” over its original (new) bore size then it should be considered worn and should be exchanged for a new nozzle.   When you purchase a new nozzle the venturi is in prime condition and able to provide substantial acceleration to abrasive stream – yes, to over 400 MPH. This gives abrasive particles energy (kinetic) they need to work on a surface to remove coatings or contaminants.

Before increasing CFM or abrasive flow we recommend inspecting sandblasting nozzle for wear or damage.  Damage could be visible as cracks in liner wall.  Bore wear, is a little more difficult to gauge. There are several ways to check for wear, for more accuracy, use an Everblast nozzle bore gauge. If you don’t have a bore gauge, then a drill bit can be used to give a rough estimate of bore size.
