There are several different brands of gun housings, gun bodies, autoguns, etc. We recently converted an older Viking or LS Industries wheel blast machine into a custom air blast cabinet. During this conversion process, we were struggling to get the customer’s item clean enough, using a generic gun housing that we started with. We decided to give the Clemco gun housing a try, to see for ourselves if there was any noticeable difference in performance. Running the Clemco gun housing, head to head against the generic Goff style gun housing, we saw a 27% increase in available suction. In a suction blast situation, more suction means more abrasive being fed to the blast nozzle in the gun housing, with the same amount of air being consumed in the same amount of time. In our experience, the Clemco gun housing maximized the cleaning efficiency of our custom project, providing better cleaning, reduced cycle times, and lower overall costs for our customer.
