The difference between them isn't the verb blast. It is about then being active or passive sentences.

"The cylinder has blasted" means that 'the cylinder` blasted by itself, and no one or nothing was affected.

"The cylinder has been blasted"means thatthe cylinder` was blasted by someone or something.
