Paper Title:
Cost Optimization of Abrasive Blasting Systems: A New and Effective Way for Using Blasting Nozzles
  Abstract

This paper introduces a new and comprehensive study on cost optimization of abrasive blasting systems. In the study, the effects of many parameters such as nozzle diameter, air pressure, efficiency, cost components as well as the effect of the nozzle wear on the cleaning cost were investigated. A new model for calculation of the optimal exchanged nozzle diameter (called “optimal diameter”) was proposed. With “optimal diameter” a new and effective way of using and making blasting nozzles was proposed and both the cleaning cost and the cleaning time can be reduced significantly.
