Before any type of metal is hot dip galvanized, it needs to be cleaned of rust and uneven particles to give it a smooth surface. One of the most effective ways to create this surface is to shot blast it. Shot blasting fires a high-pressure spray of abrasive steel materials onto a rough surface to create the smooth surface. With both an automatic loading and shot reclaim system, the process is an incredibly efficient and fast way to remove surface contaminants without chemically altering a fabrication.
A range of heavy duty shot blasting cabinets are based at our Medway plant. Highly-skilled operators use them to shot blast and strip all architectural and structural steel such as gates, fences, vehicle chassis, railings, sculptures, agricultural equipment, steel pipes, bridge components etc. Shot blasting also prepares the metal for coating, making the process easier and improving the end result.
We’ve created a guide to shot blasting compared to sand blasting here.
Our shot blasting cabinets are fully approved and meet all COSSH, health and safety and environmental regulations.Next page
