6 Claims. (Cl. 51--11)
My invention relates to a sand blast nozzle
adapted to use a limited amount of air and sand
in conjunction with a predetermined amount of
Water or moisture whereby the sanding opera5'- tions may be accomplished in a minimum period
of time, wliile the objectionable hazard encoun-
tered in sand blasting operations will be materially reduced, if not entirely eliminated.
The invention has for its object the construcl0 tion wherein the sand will be broken up into finer
particles or grains and a proper mixing of the
moisture or water with said sand accomplished
before the sand is discharged.
Another object of my invention is to provide a,
i5 nozzle of the type in question wherein the wear
receiving portions of the discharge end or mouth
Of the nozzle are removably secured in place in
order that renewal or replacement of such parts
may be accomplished.
The objects and advantages of my invention will

my previous application referred to. The other
or discharge end of the casing is more or less
flattened out so as to provide the two tapering
sides Il, Il as shown in Figure 1, While the por- 5
tions intermediate of these tapering sides are
spread or built out laterally to provide the lat
erally disposed ear or wing portions I8, I8, see
Figure 3.
'I‘hat is to say, there are two wing portions I8 10
on each side which, at the end and for a short
distance removed from the end, are spaced from
each other to receive a pair of hardened steel
plates I9 0f predetermined Width and OÍ length t0
extend across the outlet of the nozzle to- form the _15
mouth or nozzle tip; and these plates are main
tained in spaced parallel relation with each other

25 beneath the lower plate when the nozzle is posi

These pockets at the discharge- end like the
concentric pocket 26 soon become ñlled with sand
thereby providing a striking bed for the incoming
stream of sand to strike against. The incoming
sand is introduced directly in line with the open
end of the tubular member 26, causing the sand
to more or lessY combat itself and to set up a
vigorous action which causes the sand to break
35 up into a very much finer state than when it
entered the: nozzle. The turbulent action set up

It will be understood, of course, that the size
of the discharge orifice may vary in keeping with
