If you’re questioning the ability of a company to blast the exterior of your product or item, the questioning can stop here. We have several blast rooms for blasting parts that range from small, to extremely large industrial sized components.
With blasting, we have several types of media or materials to accommodate your item:
- Steel Shot/Grit
- Star Blast
- Aluminum Oxide
- Boiler Slag
- Glass Bead
- Custom Specified
These items are propelled to remove contaminants and give either a deep profile or smooth surface cleaning that can’t be matched by hand.
A field that often uses abrasive blasting to its advantage is Laser Cutting. It can improve the life of the laser eye, along with the speed and accuracy of the machinery. Frames, metal, and other large and small equipment is frequently blasted in our facilities. To give you an idea, items as small as a single 5 pound part, to a 50 ton piece of equipment can be handled.
It’s important that blasting is done the proper way, and we offer peace of mind with our membership in The Society of Protective Coatings (SSPC). If this blog has left you with any questions, reach out to one of our representatives at Derrick Company, who would be more than happy to help you.
