A high performance, reliable and low maintenance blasting room is often essential for professional blasting production process. As the blast pot forms the core of the blasting room, it must offer the same advantages.
Gritco’s high quality blast pots
Ease of use, low maintenance, high production output and reliable performance are complemented by minimal refilling interference. This last feature is obtained by the large blast pot contents and the 100% closure of the filling assembly when the blast pots are placed under an abrasive silo.
Gritco’s personal protection
The blasting operator has to be effectively protected from high speed rebounding abrasives and occurring dust. For this Gritco supplies innovative, comfortable to wear, easy to use, air supplied blasting helmets. High quality gloves and overalls - all according to strict EC rules – are also part of Gritco’s extensive range of blasting gear.
The right choice of abrasives
The type of material and treatment of an object determine the abrasive’s sort and size. As reclaiming and recycling reusable abrasives can be complicated, one-pass-abrasives (Olivine, Red Garnet, Glass Granulate or Aluminium Silicate (slag)) are commonly used to remove rust, mill scale and paint. The proper abrasive grain size depends on the degree of contamination and required result (e.g. surface roughness) but should be as small as possible in order to optimize the cover rate and blasting speed.
To ensure a blockage free, constant abrasive dosage and better surface quality (for further processing like paint spraying), blasting with dry compressed air is essential. This is achieved with an compressed air dryer delivered by the supplier of the compressor.
The right compressor
“More power means more work” is especially true for the last part of the blasting chain: the compressor. More air means faster progress simply because of the possibility to use larger nozzles creating larger blasting patterns. Therefore compressor capacities can vary from 2 to 10 m3/min.
