The orifice gauge measures the diameter of the orifice within a blast nozzle. This component holds immense significance as it directly influences the speed and dispersion pattern of the abrasive materials used in the process.
Regularly assessing and upkeeping the orifice diameter holds paramount importance in maximizing the efficiency of the blasting process. Wear and tear can cause fluctuations in the orifice size over time, impacting the quality and consistency of the abrasive stream. An orifice gauge lets operators promptly recognize when to repair or replace the nozzle, ensuring consistent and optimal performance.
