Just as abrasive circulates in your shot blast machine so will any contaminants that aren’t removed by screens (if fitted), by the air wash separator and/or dust collector.
When larger oversized particles are allowed to remain in the machine they can cause damage to the blast wheels (giving a high risk of blast wheel part breakage) and can affect the finish produced and process times adversely.
