Featured Equipment for the Manufacturing Industry

Shot blasting, or abrasive blasting, is an essential part of any manufacturing industry seeking to maintain the longevity of their parts. It is a mechanical method of propelling abrasive using a centrifugal wheel to remove surface contamination, scale, and other small impurities from the surface of a variety of steel applications. For example, this could be structural steel which includes massive bridge girders and heavy construction equipment, such as large weldments, plate steel, bar and wire steel, and foundry castings. Our shot blasting machines utilize centrifugal force to clean steel utilizing abrasive media. After the steel abrasive hits the surface, the shot blaster recycles the media. Dust and other contaminant particles are removed by an air wash separator within the machine and sent to a dedicated dust collector. This process provides a dust-free operation. In general, blasting before moving onto finishing serves a few primary purposes:  

  • Utilizing a shot blast machine before finishing allows you to clean and descales surfaces  
  • It adds texture to enhance paint adhesion 
  • Can reduce maintenance costs by increasing coating life when used properly
