True or false: The speed of abrasive exiting a venture nozzle in an efficient air abrasive blasting system is typically about 200 mph.


True or False: In judging the conformance of abrasive blast cleaning of steel with SSPC standards, such as SSPC-SP 10, the photos in SSPC-VIS 1 depicting levels of cleanliness take precedence over the written descriptions of required levels of cleanliness.
