The Model 4 is an early version of the Euroblast range of shot blast systems produced by Guyson. The range of cabinets are highly durable, rigid and tightly sealed, fabricated and welded in 16 gauge sheet steel and finished to the highest quality standards.

Leading the industry, with exceptional component entry facilities and sleeved armholes which provide safe and comfortable operator access.
Guyson manual bead blasting equipment offers a faster alternative to labour intensive operations such as hand deburring, scraping and wire brushing, chemical cleaning, acid etching or dipping, liquid honing, knife trimming, sanding, grinding and many others.
It is ideal for component producers, reconditioners and remanufacturers seeking to replace these slower and more labour intensive methods.

Cabinet Features

  • Door safety air switch.
  • Twin guns, one '400', one '900' which are controlled via a side mounted switch.
  • Blast guns have one Ø3/8" nozzle and one Ø1/4" nozzle approx.
  • Cabinet has a 'through slot' to allow thin sheet or components to pass through the unit for continuous operation.
  • Slot - 250mm thick x 500mm tall.
  • Work area - 720mm x 500mm x 400mm.
  • Foot pedal operation.
  • Clear glass viewing panel.
  • Glow off air gun.
  • Internal light.

Dust Extraction

  • Guyson C400 dust extraction unit. 
  • 240Volt single phase.
  • Dust collection bucket.
  • Cartridge filter.
  • 0.75kW extraction fan.
  • Manual activated pulse jet cleaning.

Mode of Operation

Guyson blast finishing uses compressed air to propel blast media directly at the component through an exclusively designed blast gun. These clean and safe operations are housed in an illuminated cabinet from which dust is constantly removed and the blast media recycled to provide a continuous and reliable cleaning and finishing system.

The Guyson bead blast installation is capable of using a wide selection of blast media at alternative pressures,  pressures low enough to blast delicate parts and high enough to handle the most demanding cleaning and finishing operations.

Suction Feed

Suction feed or venturi systems are generally selected for light-to-medium production requirements.

Typical Uses

Cleaning Without Dimensional Change

  • Using dry blast techniques pioneered by Guyson, even complicated shapes and sensitive materials can be efficiently cleaned without substrate erosion or dimensional change. Ideal for the precision cleaning of moulds, dies and tools without damage to delicate surfaces.

Cosmetic Finishing

  • Increasingly, cosmetic finishes can be the competitive edge that makes your product more attractive to the consumer. Whether you are addressing minor surface imperfections or providing a uniform surface finish over the whole product.


  • Blast finishing can speedily remove lightly attached burrs from complex machined components and can be more effective than hand or machine deburring in areas with poor accessibility. Non-abrasive deburring media leave even fragile materials untouched.


  • Bead blasting can be used to rapidly and thoroughly deflash resin-moulded or die-cast components. Brittle flash can be cleanly removed from intricate components without altering adjacent surfaces by precise selective impact treatment.


  • Use bead or grit blasting to quickly remove heat scale, surface discolouration, oxides, rust, weld scale or corrosion. Restore a component's looks and remove surface problems that interfere with painting, plating, coating, drawing and other processes.

Maintenance Clean, Re-Manufacture and Refurbish

  • Guyson blast cabinets are successfully used in maintenance workshops, repair shops, service centres, garages and military depots on a varied component mix. They can eliminate laborious hand work, chemical cleaning and environmental issues from the workshop, and they are ideal for automotive core re-manufacture operations and refurbishing cutting tools, TCT and diamond tipped routers, saw blades, drills etc.

Surface Etching

  • Improved surface preparation or 'keying' of component surfaces can be achieved using Guyson blast equipment. Fine media blasting delivers very real improvements in adhesion for performance critical

components such as medical implants when they are etched prior to ceramic or PVD/CVD coating.


Features to Consider for a Blasting Cabinet

  • Cubic Force per Minute (CFM) - The power the air/water/media can be shot at.
  • Dust Collection - For blasting for prolonged times lengths or dust-producing materials the dust would need to be controlled.
  • Cabinet Construction - All cabinets need to be sturdy but for high-pressure shot blasting the construction needs to be secure.
  • Type of Cabinet - Options include suction, pressure & water blast cabinets.
  • Functional Design & View - Would the operation be able to use the cabinet and see through the window?
  • Media - What purpose do you need to shot blast as different media can achieve different finishes.
  • Accessories for Blast Cabinet - Is the cabinet sellf contained or does it required additional control, extraction and cyclone units.


What is Shot Blasting?

Shot Blasting can be used as a catch all term for a wide range of similar industrial processes. It is also called abrasive cleaning or abrasive surface finishing. During the shot blasting process a media material is fired at an object to remove remove burrs, flashing, paint, scale or rust and clean and smooth (or sometimes intentionally roughen) the surface.

There are several mechanical methods used to propel the media material including using compressed air or water streams, or airless methods such as wheel blasting.

The media used also differs depending on the results needed but the catch all term is shot, hence shot blasting. The shape, size and weight of the media will determine the outcome. Frequently a metal shot is used including steel grit, copper shots, and aluminum pellets. Some methods of shot blasting use silica sand (sand blasting - not in some countries due to health risks), glass beads (bead blasting), sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) or crushed nuts shells or kernels.

Benefits of Suction Blast Cabinet

  • Lower initial cost: a suction blast cabinet costs less than a pressure blast cabinet
  • Lower operating costs: blast media is being supplied by a suction action rather than being fed with pressure, the media will leave the blast nozzle at a lighter pressure and speed.
  • Lower air volume requirements: needs less air to function compared to a pressure fed cabinet.
