CrystalBlast™ Elite

With Patented CleanFlo Technology, Ergonomic Design Meets World-Class Construction

Truly peerless, the CrystalBlast Elite is the Total Ergonomic Machine designed to meet the needs of any sandcarving facility. Ergonomic features such as seated or standing operation, adjustable foot treadle, eye-level machine controls, micro sized abrasive hose, fully padded armrest and large view window put the Elite in a class of its own.

Unique to the CrystalBlast Elite is our Patented CleanFlo Technology, which includes a 700 cfm exhaust blower with 110 sq. ft. certified filter cartridge. The Elite also contains a removable, patented, Cyclone 240 separator reclaimer that prevents the loss of even the smallest abrasive up to 240 mesh. The reverse pulse cleaning system makes dust collector maintenance as easy as a push of a button. The Elite also includes LED part inspection lighting and high pressure long wear industrial pinch valve for easy operation. All the combined features showcase the innovation and technology of the CrystalBlast Elite’s design.

*220V/50hz conversion & international crating available for an additional $482 USD. Call IKONICS Imaging toll free at (800) 643-1037 for replacement parts.

5 stars with one exception Review by Michael Lueders
Customer Service
Outstanding cabinet, I have 3 others for various blasting needs. The cabinet is top notch, well thought out, nice features like tool less nozzle changes etc... Customer service is outstanding..feel like I'm talking with friends who have a deep desire to help me with projects and set up. The only downside..and it's really a strange deal.. is the overhead lighting. In a cabinet that appears to be engineered to a sharp degree the lighting is rather "just put together" and needs addressing. Over all I would definitely purchase again. (Posted on 9/14/2016)

The Best Blaster In the Universe Review by The Crystal Touch - Carole Kuzmick
Customer Service
The best investment that I have ever made was buying my "Elite" CrystalBlast machine It has changed my world
completely. Easy to beautifully even in 95 degree Florida weather with 100% Humidity. I can count on
its efficiency each and every day. The Ikonics staff have been wonderful to help with any questions, problems and
solutions. 17 months post purchase, I am forever grateful I made the decision to buy "The Best Blaster in the
Universe". (Posted on 8/4/2016)
Best .Blaster. Period Review by Michael Clark
Customer Service
We had been looking at adding sand carving to our product offerings for several years. After my wife attended a
regional school with Andy, she was sure we needed to take a closer look. I had always thought sand carving would be
fun AND profitable so I set out to check it out in person at the next NBM trade show that we attended. I met Peter at the
Philadelphia show, and he encouraged me to "give it a try". I was amazed with the ease and control provided by the
CrystalBlast Elite, especially with the foot flow was very intuitive. After my second piece of glass ware
blasted, I pulled out my credit card and purchased the show floor model.
Soon after our purchase we flew to Brea, CA to attend a free sand carving school at Media Blast to check out the other
available models, features, photo resist films, and get some training from the experts. This was a great opportunity to
see first hand some of the value added processes (especially color fill) that can further enhance our gift and award
business. Touring the Media Blast facility and seeing the cabinets made is definitely a great chance to reinforce just
how much quality is built into these USA-made machines. As a career engineer it was already clear to my how much
went into these machines (even the welding is a work of art), but I had an even clearer picture.
While the subject of this review is primarily around my experience with the sand carving machine, I would be remiss not
to mention my experience with Ikonics Imaging as a whole. Through the pre-purchase, purchase, delivery, and postdelivery
phases, I have always felt that the growth and success MATTERS to Ikonics. The entire outbound team that
we have worked with (Peter, Andy, Dr. Jones) are people that know us by name, know what we do, and are people we
call friends. Someone once described them as "Minnesota nice", and I now know what that means. Our experience has
been the same with inside sales, and marketing as well .... it's clear it's part of the Ikonics culture. One word of warning
is due here, though ... once you become part of the Ikonics "family" you will expect FAR MORE from all of the vendors
in your supply chain. I'm very confident that whomever you are dealing with at Ikonics, you will feel like you're their only
customer (you're not, I've checked, they have many).
In summary, buy the machine. Unlike so many businesses that are "right there with you" until they get the signed
check for the equipment, Ikonics builds a relationship. You will have no buyer's remorse here. (Posted on 8/2/2016)

Great machine for small production house! Review by Amanda
Customer Service
We've been using our CrystalBlast for 4 or 5 yrs, and it's held up to daily use in our ceramics and glassware sandblasting studio. It was even fairly easy to move from our old studio to our new one, and we've had great customer service whenever replacing a part or trouble shooting. (Posted on 4/11/2016)
Design improvements Review by Lorraine Schinelli
Customer Service
I purchased the crystal blast elite several years ago and, in general, I am very happy with the blaster. My one
frustration comes with the location of the air clean off nozzle. This is always in my way when using the blaster and I am
constantly concerned that when I move it out of the way, I will drop it onto my glass and chip my artwork. It would be so
much more convenient to have the air clean off come from the right side or the back of the left side instead of right next to
the blast nozzle. (Posted on 10/28/2015)
