HTF Abrasive Pressure Calculator

Productive orbital floor sanding requires the right amount of force (pressure) to be applied to the abrasive so that it sands at its most efficient in relation to the size of abrasive grit. Typically more pressure is required the coarser the abrasive grit.

The HTF's design applies the ideal pressure across the whole surface area of the abrasive. For all types of wood floors and decking.

See for yourself, click the link below to calculate the abrasive pressure for different sanding pad sizes and machine weight.

Weight (typical): 120lbs (54kg)

Note: Typically the weight of an 18" x 12" orbital floor sander is centred around the middle of the machine in-line with the motor and not evenly distributed over the whole of the sanding pad.
