The feed is plugging up either because of too large a piece of material (ie recycled sand) or moisture. Where i live, if I try to sandblast at less that 40 degrees f., even with dry sand, the temp makes my 50 foot hose cold, & sand does the same thing as your description. I also have a 80 lb unit that will do the same,
For the small ones that are not pressurized, (I have one that you just stick the end of the feed hose into the sand bag) my normal problem is if the sand is damp, since the sand is new. hope this helps, rick
1. do you have an adequate air compressor, meaning can deliver sufficient air supply to the sand blaster. 2. if you have an air leak at the water trap at the bottom of the trap it self. you need a new one. 3. it is a must to have a water trap when using a sand blaster.
So what I would do is replace the water trap and install the new water trap at the compressor between the compressor and the air hose coupling. the reason for this is your less likely to have it fail at the compressor VS at the sand blaster. once you have done that. you need to make sure that you have no more than 3/4 of media / sand in the sand blaster itself.
then open air supply valve #1 where the water trap is or was a 1/4 -1/2 way. then open the mid way valve#2 1/4 - 3/4 way. and the bottom valve#3 open 1/4 - 3/4 way. getting the air supply valves all set correctly is hard to do some times.
Air valve #1 supplys the air to the blaster.( more air the better)
Air valve #2 supplys the air going into the top of the blaster tank. ( wich pressurizes the top of the tank to push the sand or media downward )
Air valve #3 supplys the air mixture to sand at the bottom of the tank.
make sure first of all you have a big enough compresor to run ur sand blaster always put clean sand in it,try using a screen if u have to reuse sand if big enough chunks get in the sand it will clog up.hold away from object to be sanded about 3 inches away from area to be sanded.always keep blaster moving if u keep it in 1 spot to long u can warp the metal.other then that i dont know specifically what u need to know.
Turn off the Stylus CX. Load letter-size paper in the sheet feeder. Press the ink and ON buttons together and hold them down for about 3 seconds. The Stylus CX turns on and prints a test pattern, which includes a nozzle check. If the print comes as = > Nozzle check pattern with no gaps, and if its print in black then reinstall the printer driver or => Nozzle check pattern with gaps and black doesn't print please send the printer for repair
