The customer opted for Guyson’s standard dual media arrangement consisting of three 3.5-cu.-ft. pressure vessels, precision 75/12 cyclone and programmable quick-connect media hoses. Nine Thompson grit value combinations precisely control the media delivery, which is monitored and displayed on the Panel view 700. This custom cell was completed in less than 20 weeks.
