Converting a suck shot blaster to a blow shot peen - 06/24/19 11:26 AM

Hey, currently working on a project to restore an old vacublast shot blasting machine to a shot peening machine. The old system uses a fan to suck the air and shot mixture to the top of the hopper. The aim is to use 230 series steel blasting media but the current system wouldn't be able to support such dense media. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

This would require extensive modification. The suction system would need to be replaced with a bucket elevator.
