Hand Tools

There are many specialty hand tools used for abrasive blasting solutions, such as vacuum blasting, wire wheel bristle blasting, power blast guns, internal pipe blasting tools and internal pipe painting tools. All these specialty tools are designed for specific applications and solutions.

These specialty hand tools are designed with specific use cases. They are intended for use in cases where conventional blasting methods are either not practical or unsafe.

Some of these tools, such as internal pipe tools or vacuum workheads, modify conventional blasting methods to fit a specific application or scenario (e.g. blasting inside of a pipe, or in a scenario where abrasive recovery is crucial).

  • The Bristle Blaster® is a portable surface preparation tool that combines wire wheels with an ingenious accelerator bar*, to speed production. Benefits include the following:

    • Excellent for spot work.  Small projects such as rework, weld cleaning, etc., are faster due to no abrasive cleanup needed.
    • Highly portable.  Light weight and compact makes usage and storage a breeze.
    • Simple to use.  No need to suit up to use it.
    • Quick setup.  Plug in and go!
    • Safe for most surfaces.  Unlike a grinder, the Bristle Blaster® creates a surface profile without removing metal.

    While the production speed isn't as high as traditional abrasive blasting, the benefits of no mess and quick setup/teardown make this a very efficient tool for spot work and repairs.  It is up to 10x faster than using a hand wire brush. The Bristle Blaster® tools are available in 3 power configurations:

    • Electric.  Requires 910 watts at 120v.
    • Pneumatic.  Uses standard shop-air line.  Requires less than 20 CFM at 75 or 90PSI.
    • Cordless.  Rechargeable battery power offers the ultimate in portability.

    There are 3 orientation configurations for the wheels, as follows:

    • Standard wheel (general purpose)
    • Double wheel  (faster production for larger surfaces).  Note - available in electric only.
    • Axial (right angle) wheel (great for reaching inside corners or other areas difficult to reach with the standard wheel).  Note - available in pneumatic only.

    Additional notes:

    • These units create a surface profile between 2.5 and 3.5 mils.
    • Wire wheels are also known as belts.  BlastOne stocks all carbon steel and stainless Bristle Blaster® replacement belts.
    • The standard pneumatic kit includes a dust shroud for attachment to a vacuum cleaner, for even faster clean up.
    • Other belt types and machine models available - enquire.

    *The Axial version does not come with an Accelerator Bar.

Others—like the suction blasting gun, bristle blaster, or palm sander—are optimal for touch-up work or smaller use cases where a complete blasting set up would either be too cumbersome or impractical.

These tools have their strengths in specific circumstances. But they are also specialty tools—meaning they also have drawbacks in certain scenarios and limited versatility. It’s advisable to consult a technical expert about the job details and constraints before purchasing.
