Shot blasting for Surface Preparation of steel is a very efficient way to blast clean steel surfaces of rust, paint and old coatings to confiorm to the SA standard required.
Grit blasting need air compressors up to 600 CFM. These are very heavy duty shot blast pots that are capable of very fast work rates meaning less disruption time for our clients. Very heavily corroded surfaces need hand and/or power tools initially, followed by Blast abrasive. This will give the correct profile to accept the protective coating, which will provide the perfect preparation.
Closed circuit shot blasting (dust free) is suited best to steel structures, such as bridges and the marine industry this can make it impractical.
Our shot blasters are fully trained in the use of grit blasting and media blasting machines.
As Surface Preparation Contractors for rapid shot blasting of horizontal steel or large vertical surfaces we choose to use the Blastrac shot blasting machines. These are environmentally friendly and economic. When using the Blastrac shot blasting equipment, associated trades are able to continue to work in and around the work area reducing downtime for the project.
