Sandblasting effectively strips away paint, rust, and stubborn coatings, but the process demands the right equipment. At the heart of any sandblasting setup lies a powerful air compressor, delivering the pressurised air needed to propel the abrasive blast.

GTEC, experts in compressed air solutions with over 45 years of engineering experience, understands your need for reliable sandblasting equipment.


Choosing the Right Air Compressor for Your Sandblasting Needs

Selecting the perfect compressor for sandblasting depends on several factors:

  • CFM (Cubic Feet per Minute): Measures the volume of air the compressor moves. Higher CFM ratings mean greater sandblasting power. Consider compressors delivering 18-35 CFM or 50-100 CFM for industrial jobs.
  • PSI (Pounds per Square Inch): Indicates output pressure. Maintain 90-100 PSI for optimal sandblasting performance. As sandblasting depletes the air tank, keeping a working 50-90 PSI range ensures consistent results.
  • Sandblaster Type: Choose a compressor compatible with gravity-fed, pressure, or siphon sandblasters based on your project scale.

The right air compressor is the heart of a successful sandblasting setup. If it’s underpowered, you’ll face frustration, slow progress, and inconsistent results. Oversizing, while not directly harmful, will waste energy and money. Don’t settle for a “good enough” compressor—get the specific air power your applications demand.


GTEC: Air Compressor Excellence

Sandblasting demands the right air compressor for efficient surface preparation, restoration, or etching. Understanding the different types of compressors available is essential for making the best choice for your specific needs. GTEC offers a wide selection to ensure perfect alignment with your project requirements:
