Operator Review of Farrow Flow® Insert for Abrasive Blasting
If someone told you they could install a product on my sandblast equipment in minutes, and it would both improve your production by at least 25% and create a wider blast pattern, what would you say?
If it were me a few weeks ago, I would say “That’s not possible.” That was my exact reaction when I was approached recently by a sandblaster who told me his experience with the Farrow Flow® Insert. He explained that the Insert can be installed anywhere between the compressor and metering valve, and it creates a tornado effect through the airlines that increases blast speed, reduces media consumption and creates a larger blast pattern.
Reluctantly, I requested a demo Insert from the manufacturer and set up a test with a local powder coater to see if any of these claims were true. The first test blew my mind and made me a believer. The Insert yielded a 50-60% improvement on blast speed and significantly larger blast pattern. Additionally, as I started to uninstall the Insert, I was stopped by the operator with a loud, “Leave that there.” He wanted to purchase my used Insert so he could continue blasting with the product.
