foot operated control valve pedal used on SB350, SB450 & SB990.

A foot-operated control valve used on sandblasters is a specialized pneumatic or hydraulic valve, designed to control the flow of abrasive material (such as sand or other media) and compressed air in a sandblasting system. This valve allows the operator to start, stop, and regulate the flow of abrasive material and air by using their foot, which leaves their hands free to manipulate the sandblasting nozzle and focus on the workpiece.

These foot control valves can be used to upgrade your old machine along with pressure regulator, metering valve and gun.

Universal Foot Pedal is suitable for blasting cabinets of different brands and types. It is a durable and solid product that lasts a long time.


  1. Foot Pedal: The valve typically consists of a foot pedal that the operator can press down or release to control the flow of abrasive material and air. Pressing the pedal initiates the blasting process, and releasing it stops the flow.
  2. Variable Flow Control: Some foot-operated valves offer variable flow control, allowing the operator to adjust the rate at which abrasive material and air are delivered. This is important for controlling the intensity of the sandblasting process and achieving the desired surface finish.
  3. Safety Interlock: To ensure safety, many foot-operated control valves are designed with a safety interlock feature. This feature prevents accidental or unauthorized operation by requiring the operator to press the pedal intentionally.
  4. Compatibility: These valves are typically designed to be compatible with the specific sandblasting equipment they are used with. They need to be connected to the sandblasting hose and nozzle, as well as the compressed air supply.
  5. Durability: Due to the abrasive nature of the materials involved in sandblasting, these valves are constructed from durable materials that can withstand the wear and tear of abrasive particles passing through them.
  6. Easy Maintenance: Regular maintenance is essential to keep the foot-operated control valve in good working condition. Some models are designed for easy disassembly and cleaning to remove any abrasive particles that may accumulate.
  7. Remote Operation: In some cases, foot-operated valves can be equipped with remote control capabilities, allowing the operator to control the sandblasting process from a distance for added convenience and safety.
  8. Pressure Regulation: The valve may include features for regulating the pressure of both the abrasive material and compressed air, ensuring consistent and efficient sandblasting operations.
  9. Compatibility with Media Types: Sandblasting can use various abrasive media types, such as sand, glass beads, aluminum oxide, or steel shot. The valve should be compatible with the specific media used in the sandblasting system.
